The final countdown of 2013 will be presided over by a Supreme New Yorker.

U.S. Supreme Court justice and Bronx native Sonia Sotomayor will push the ceremonial button lowering the Times Square Ball Tuesday night.

Besides button duty, Sotomayor will also lead the crowd in a 60-second countdown ushering in the new year.

The president of "Countdown Entertainment" said that he is excited to have Sotomayor at the button and that she is an inspiration to everyone determined to achieve their dreams in 2014.

Justice Sotomayor was appointed to the Supreme Court in 2009.
