Organizers of the New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square provided a  preliminary teaser of how the event will change in response to the changes and challenges of 2020: a virtually enhanced  celebration that brings Times Square and The Ball to you digitally no matter where you are, scaled-back and socially distanced live elements still to be determined, and an extremely limited group of in-person honorees, socially distanced,  who will reflect the themes, challenges and inspirations of 2020.
