Hello All,

I plan to finally go see the ball drop in person tommorow in Time's Square. Except since this is my first time, I would love to get some tips from people who have done it in the past. My main question is, how early do I need to get there so that I get a decent view of the drop. Also what did you guys do while waiting for midnight? I would go check out a few stores but I don't wanna loose my "place" standing.

Thanks
