    More than one million brave second coldest New Year’s Eve EVER to ring in 2018 in New York

    More than one million people braved the second coldest New Year’s Eve ever as temperatures dropped to a bone-chilling 10F while revelers watched the glittering ball drop with a burst of confetti and spectacular fireworks in Times Square.  
    Earlier on Sunday, New York police warned revelers to suit up in thermals, hats and gloves or risk frostbite and hypothermia. 
    Thousands of people had already started gathering more than 12 hours before the midnight countdown to 2018 to see the glittering crystal ball drop in Times Square.
    It ended up being one of the coldest celebrations on record, held under tight security after a year that saw several fatal attacks on large crowds, including one in Times Square itself last spring.
