Times Square preps for NYE

New York (AP) - New York City's Times Square is getting ready for New Year's Eve.

The square will host millions Tuesday night counting down the last few moments of 2013.

Starting Saturday, six Citibikes from the city's bike share program will be installed in Times Square and connected to 12-volt deep cycle batteries.

New Yorkers and tourists will generate power by pedaling. That will help to illuminate the famed ball that will descend New Year's Eve.

Each bike will generate an average of 75 watts an hour. It takes 50,000 watts to power the ball, which is lit by 30,000 LEDs.

Additionally, a giant paper shredder and a Dumpster were installed in Times Square Saturday to allow visitors to destroy bad memories of 2013.

The annual event is dubbed "Good Riddance Day."
