Duracell Power Lodge Times Square NYC 2008

Check this out Steets Journalism went to the Duracell Power Lodge. We got a tour of the place and even got to see where the energy was being stored for the lighting of the Welcome to 2009 sign that will be powered by all the visitors that use the snowmobile bikes in the Lodge. This is a good idea and it is a nice time for the family to be part of the New Years Eve party in such a nice way to save energy. Below is a video of the Duracell Lodge on our visit to Times Square. Please enjoy the video.

Permanent New Years Eve ball For Times Square NYC 2008

A Permanent New Years Eve Ball will be placed in times square for the world to see year round starting this year 2008. This is really a great idea who's time has come. The ball will change patterns,colors,images, and will be in a place that marks the spot where the ball drops for the world to see year round as the come to NYC to visit. That to me is what makes this idea so good. Maybe with the money on tourism to be made the city will not have to put up those proposed tolls for the bridges or the MTA fare hike. Don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen. In the meantime this year might be a good time to be at the ball drop.
