While it's not quite New Years yet, crews are raising the world famous New Year's Eve ball to it's perch above One Times Square.
Tuesday night it will be lit by more than 3,200 Philips LEDs that can change to virtually any color.
It's 2,600 Waterford Crystal Panels have also been etched with this years theme "The Gift of Imaginations".
"Because of the Waterford Crystal pattern 'The Gift of Imagination' you have actually more refraction going on it looks much different than in past years so it really is like a kaleidoscope effect," said Tim Tompkins of the Times Square Alliance.
As for who gets the honor of starting the ball's decent this year, that will go to U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice and Bronx native Sonia Sotomayor.
