    December 1907, However they did not drop a ball 1942 or 1943 due to the wartime restriction.
    Happy New Year!

  21. Natalie Vandenberghe

    I saw this question previously (somewhere else) and answered 1907…then, it occurred to me that if the celebration was on New Year’s Eve 12/31/07, the ball probably didn’t drop until after midnight–making it 1908. I’ll be eager to find out the true answer ;)
    Happy New Year!

  22. Although the Times Square celebration began in 1904, the first ball drop didn’t occur until New Year’s Eve 1907.
