It was the first New Year’s Eve in New York’s Times Square since the longtime icon of the night, Dick Clark, passed away.  And despite a difficult 2012 for many, there was one heckuva party to ring in the New Year.

FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig was there:

It’s like standing in a snowglobe, just with confetti swirling around instead of snow.  Revelers in their blue, puffy hats sharing handshakes, hugs and the traditional New Year’s kiss, of course.  Those kisses going off without a hitch thanks to the free chap stick handed out during the night.

2013 a welcome changeover for the millions in the region, after a 2012 that brought the Sandys: First, the Superstorm that ravaged the coast, then the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, just a couple of hours away from here.

The million-plus packing the streets here ringing it in in style, with kissing contests, live music, even a wedding.
