They are big, bold and energy efficient. The 7 feet tall numerals were displayed in the heart of New York City this December. The numeral delivery in Duffy Square, just across the street from the iconic Times Square, has become a yearly tradition ten days prior to Christmas. It’s a fun way to get into the holiday spirit and for some people it marks the opening of the festive season. Despite the freezing temperatures this year, a crowd gathered to greet the numerals. Photographers and the media were also on hand to welcome the last two digits of the 2017 Times Square Ball numerals.
