The ball has been lowered every since 1907, except for 1942 and 1943, when the ceremony was suspended due to the WWII “dimout” lighting restrictions in New York City.

Treat Yourself to a Safe Halloween

Skeletons, spiderwebs, and Jack-o’-lanterns galore are popping up all over our neighborhoods, and that can only mean one thing: Halloween is just around the corner. If your preparations so far have involved stocking up on candy and choosing the perfect costume for yourself or your children, you’re on the right track.

- Keep your home, yard, and sidewalks brightly lit

- Clear debris and obstacles from your yard, ste ...
