Times Square to go DARK on Saturday ..March 29, 2014

MIDTOWN — For one hour, the city's brightest lights will go dark.

From 8:30-9:30 p.m. on Saturday, the Great White Way will plunge into darkness as part of Earth Hour, an annual event that turns off lights at landmarks across the globe to raise awareness of energy use and conservation.

For the first time, the iconic New Year's Eve ball in Times Square will go dark in support of the efforts, organized by the World Wildlife Fund.

Switching off the ball means bringing in a specialist, according to Jeffrey Straus, president of Countdown Entertainment, which operates the ball.
