An estimated 6,500 people flocked to Main Street in Patchogue on New Year’s Eve to ring in the new year NYC-style, complete with a countdown and a huge, LED-lit ball — along with Fireworks by Grucci.
The glowing, color-changing ball was made by North Star Signs & Neon Inc. of East Patchogue.
The attendance Thursday night more than doubled the inaugural New Year’s Eve countdown event — called Midnight on Main St. — last December, which attracted about 3,000 people to East Main Street.
Patchogue Mayor Paul Pontieri led the countdown, which actually happened at 9 p.m., not midnight.
