Inside the Times Square Visitor Center, the Times Square Alliance has designated an area on its New Year’s Eve Confetti Wishing Wall where fans can write down their memories on confetti to pay their respects to the late Dick Clark. These messages will be added to the one ton of confetti that will fall on Times Square at midnight on New Year’s Eve in 2013. Dick Clark, an entertainment legend, had been an iconic part of New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square for 40 years.
“We are encouraging New Yorkers and visitors to help us honor his legacy by sharing their messages and memories on our New Year’s Eve Confetti Wishing Wall,” said Tim Tompkins, president of the Times Square Alliance. “We remember and honor Dick for his lasting contribution to Times Square and his ability to bring us together every year to welcome in the New Year.” The visitor center is located at 7th Avenue between 46th and 47th Streets.
