    It originally dropped one second after midnight, so technically it was 1908, but it is recorder as New Years Eve 1907.

    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!

    It was first lowered on New Year’s Eve 1908 (December 31, 1907). It originally dropped one second after midnight. Though The New York Times would later move its headquarters to a larger building at 229 West 43rd Street, the New Year’s Eve celebration at One Times Square remains to this day
