New York City Will Have Green Balls This New Year's Eve

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Come on, you have to admit that is a brilliant title!  Tonight, my current stomping ground, New York City, is celebrating one of it’s most famous Times Square traditions-the New Year’s Eve ball drop.  This year however, NYC will also be starting a new tradition.  The famous ball is officially going green, baby!!

The 1,415-pound ball will be covered in more than 9,500 energy-efficient light-emitting diodes that will illuminate the ball’s over 600 crystals and set the sky a blazin’.  Officials (whatever that means) say that the LEDs are estimated to use the same amount of electricity as about 10 toasters, which is like the craziest, most super cool thing I’ve ever heard.

As always, my precious little city will rock New Years eve celebrity style with musical performances by Hannah Montana, The Jonas Brothers, Kid Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Lifehouse, The Bravery, and alums from Fox TV’s American Idol, Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis

So take that N train downtown and come celebrate the end of 2007 with the lot of us. Did I mention Hannah Montana will be there?

If the Syrian author of that poem could go vegan, anyone in our era can buck far milder social pressures and go vegan.
