The countdown to the new year in Times Square is getting some high-profile help from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. The organizers of the annual celebration said Sunday that Sotomayor will lead the final 60-second countdown and push the ceremonial button to signal the descent of the Times Square New Year’s Eve ball. The giant New Year’s Eve ball is covered in more than 2,600 crystal triangles and lit from within by more than 32,000 lights.
