People heading to Times Square in New York City for the ball drop for New Year's Eve will see even more police on patrol. With Las Vegas still fresh in memory - where a sniper holed up in a high-rise hotel fired down on a concert in October - the police, according to reports, are scouring hotels and skyscrapers and setting up rooftop observation posts. A man detonated a bomb in the city's subway system on December 11, injuring only himself.

About a month earlier, eight people were killed in a truck attack on the West Side Highway. "But everyone makes due", said T.J. William, of the Times Square Alliance, who added the cold temperatures could keep the crowd size down. The speeding vehicle was eventually stopped by one of the squat metal barriers that have been installed around the square's pedestrian plazas.

People who want to see the New Year's Eve musical acts and other entertainment up close in Times Square will have to pass by dogs trained to detect explosives and heavily armed officers, go through a magnetometer to check for weapons, have their bags inspected, and then repeat all those steps a second time.
