File-In this May 20, 2013, file photo, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor smiles after receiving a Honorary Doctor of Laws during commencement at Yale University in New Haven, Conn. But for the first time in a decade, a New York City mayor won’t be attending the countdown at the crossroads of the world. Outgoing Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he’s sitting this year out to spend time with family. And Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio will be sworn into office at a private ceremony at 12:01 a.m. Instead, Sotomayor will lead the 60-second countdown and push the ceremonial button to signal the descent of the Times Square New Year's Eve ball.
