Workers install a seven-foot tall numeral '15' that will be used to make the number '2015' complete for the famous Times Square New Year's Eve celebration on Tuesday in New York's Times Square. Thousands of people every year attend the 'ball drop' party in Times Square when an illuminated globe slides down a pole on the roof of the One Time Square building in the last minute of the old year, illuminating the new year's number at midnight.
