2010 Good Riddance Day: New Year's Shredding in Times Square on December 28
I've only done the "watch the ball drop" thing once in person, and I'll never be that crazy again. But, if you're determined to include Times Square in your New Year’s itinerary, Good Riddance Day and the Wishing Well are two unique celebrations not to miss. On December 28, it will be out with the old, in with the new in Times Square as visitors shred their worst memories from 2010 by disposing of them in a giant shredder. After letting go of 2010, guests can record a wish for 2011 on a piece of paper that will be added to the confetti that accompanies the New Year's Eve Ball Drop. If you can’t stop by to record your wish in person by New Year’s Eve, contribute one online. All online wishes will also be turned into confetti as well.
