How much does the Times Square New Year's Eve Ball weigh?
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Times Square New Year's Eve Ball was dropped to empty streets and crowds were prohibited from flocking to Times Square. The ball this year was 12 feet in diameter, and weighed 11,875 pounds. When the first New Year's Eve Ball was dropped in 1907, it was made of iron and wood, and weighed 700 pounds. The Ball has been lowered every year since 1907, with the exceptions of 1942 and 1943, when the ceremony was suspended due to the wartime "dimout" of lights in New York City.
