Revelers pack Times Square under tight security

A New Year’s Eve crowd that was expected to swell to more a million people poured into New York City’s Times Square under heavy security on Thursday to celebrate the arrival of 2016 with the traditional dropping of the crystal ball. With memories of the deadly attacks in Paris and California still fresh, police took extraordinary measures to ensure security at an event that has come to define the New York experience for many visitors to the largest U.S. city. “This is the center of the world on New Year’s Eve,” said Rick Milley, 60, who traveled from Boston with his wife, Debbie, 59, to ring in the new year in Times Square.
