An exploration of NYC New Year's Day traditions.

Today marks the first day of 2011, and New York City is home to several special New Year’s traditions, the most notable of which already took place -- the ball drop in Times Square. But there are other traditional celebrations in the city worth talking about.

On this week's Cityscape we look at New Year's traditions from a freezing cold swim on Coney island to a birding expedition in Central Park to a 12-hour poetry marathon on the Lower East side.
