About Brooklyn Rising
Brooklyn Rising is a history-making project developed by James Hill, designed to give Brooklyn its own New Year’s Eve event.
The Rising Ball is poised to be second only to the Brooklyn Bridge as a symbol of the borough’s renewed prominence. In stark contrast to Times Square, the Brooklyn Ball will rise, representing the growth and prosperity across the city of Brooklyn and the greater NYC.
