A new app brings New York City’s New Year’s Eve experience right to your home.
Jamestown, owner of One Times Square – home of the iconic New Year’s Eve Ball – has collaborated with Ultimate Gamer, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Samsung, and others to create a first-of-its-kind virtual New Year’s Eve experience so Americans can ring in the New Year safely with Virtual New Year’s Eve (VNYE).
“Here in New York, One Times Square is the place where people mark the world’s biggest moments. It is also the place where a million-plus people gather each year to celebrate New Year’s Eve,” Jamestown President Michael Phillips said. “When it became clear to us, the Times Square Alliance, and our partners in the city and the state, that this celebration would not be possible this year, we turned our attention to creating a new platform that enables everyone, everywhere to join us virtually in Times Square.”
