The countdown to the new year in Times Square is getting some high-profile help - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
    
The organizers of the annual celebration announced Sunday that Sotomayor will lead the final 60-second countdown and push the ceremonial button to signal the descent of the Times Square New Year's Eve ball.
    
Sotomayor was appointed to the court in 2009. She is a native of the Bronx.
    
The giant New Year's Eve ball is covered in more than 2,600 crystal triangles and lit from within by more than 32,000 lights.
