The organizers of New York's Times Square New Year's Eve said bad memories will be destroyed in the city for the sixth annual Good Riddance Day.
The Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment said a giant Cintas shredder, a rubber mallet and a dumpster will be made available from noon to 1 p.m. Friday in Times Square for people to dispose of their unpleasant memories of 2012.
The organizers said Adam Ingber of Long Beach, N.Y., was chosen to be the first to destroy his memories of the year Friday after his family's home sustained major damage during Hurricane Sandy.
The event will also feature volunteers shredding pieces of paper bearing the bad memories of people who submit their memories online, the organizers said.
