In the wake of recent terror attacks in the city, the NYPD is beefing up security on New Year's Eve.
Starting at 11 a.m. Sunday, police will close down the so-called "Bowtie Area" around Times Square to all traffic. That means 37th Street to 59th Street between Sixth and Eighth avenues.
All parking garages in the area will also be shut down.
Armed security teams and dogs will be placed along the entry areas for the world-famous ball drop.
Large bags, coolers and umbrellas will also be barred from the celebration.
City officials say revelers should keep a sharp eye out while they're having fun.
"If you see something or someone that might look nervous or suspicious, just make sure you call 911 or grab a cop. There's going to be thousands of cops in that area there," said Police Commissioner James O'Neill.
"Because of our values as New Yorkers, because of our success as a pluralistic city, terrorists regard New York City as the exact kind of place they want to disrupt," Mayor Bill de Blasio said. "New Yorkers respond consistently with strength and resiliency. We saw after the two attacks in the fall."
The NYPD emphasizes there are no credible threats to the city.
