new year facts, new year celebration, new year fireworks

Over the years, the Times Square ball has gone through several transformations. However, none of them appeared in either 1942 or 1943. World War II was in full swing, and the army was concerned that the Big Apple's extravagant light shows would make it easy for German submarines to spot American ships in New York Harbor. So Lady Liberty's torch was turned off, the Brooklyn Dodgers stopped playing night games, and the Times Square ball drop was put on hold for two years.
