The numerals made the cross-country trip to the Big Apple after a coast-to-coast tour that started in California.

New Yorkers will have a chance to take photos with the numbers outside in a safe, socially distanced space until noon on Wednesday.

From there, they will take a short rest before being placed atop One Times Square, where it will be positioned for the ball drop on New Year's Eve.
