Preparing Times Square for New Year's Eve

I was walking through Times Square in the pre-dawn hours today and snapped these photos of how it looks now, as the workers prepare it for the 10s of thousands of people who will pack the Crossroads of the World - and the millions more who will be watching on TV and on the Internet, to ring in the New Year.

Transforming Times Square into a huge open air TV studio
Putting the finishing touches on one of the stages
The TV trucks are stationed at Times Square for live reports on New Year's Eve preparations .

Workmen were out all night erecting this stage
Stage is almost ready for New Year's Eve broadcast
Soon this area will be crawling with 10s of thousands of revelers
