New York City to observe 'COVID remembrance day' March 14

New York City to observe 'COVID remembrance day' March 14”

As of Thursday, at least 426,279 coronavirus cases and 25,099 fatalities have been recorded in the city, according to The New York Times. The outlet notes that each request could represent multiple individuals sharing a residence to include and entire family household, putting the real number far above 300,000 New Yorkers who have fled the city.

The queen of disco, Gloria Gaynor, will belt out her hit song "I Will Survive", a fitting way to thumb your nose at the year 2020.

NBC's New Year's Eve 2021 also featured performances from AJR, Chloe X Halle, CNCO, Jason Derulo, Kylie Minogue, Pentatonix, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani as well as star-studded collaborations from Busta Rhymes feat.

The ball-which is officially titled the Waterford Crystal Times Square New Year's Eve Ball-descends on Times Square at midnight Eastern time that can be watched on the official website. "It's just not going to be what we wanted, what everyone dreams about in NY".

Despite the restrictions, Mayor Bill de Blasio vowed that New Year's Eve "would be a joyous night, if ever there was one".

The NYPD announced a two-part freeze that will become more expansive at 3pm local time.

Some people either didn't get the message or made a decision to come to Times Square anyway, hoping to get an early glimpse of the ball before police started to clear the plaza of anyone who was not authorized to be there. Even guests at five hotels in the area were told to stay inside. Goodbye, 2020. Here comes something better: "2021".

But they won't be the only ones to witness the traditional descent of the Times Square Ball, a enormous crystal ball that releases thousands of pieces of confetti at the twelfth stroke of midnight. It is a bucket list item for others.

The Police Department will still roll out heavy weapons teams, explosive-sniffing dogs, drones and sand trucks.

This year's celebration will unfold without the usual throngs of cheering, kissing revellers.

"It's nearly like a "Seinfeld" episode", Shea said, invoking the 1990s "show about nothing".

"This is a ball drop about nothing, where you can't see", he said, "so you may as well stay home".
