Hopes for a better year ring in 2011

NEW YORK (AP) - The big snowfall from a few days ago is still being cleared away -- and now, New York sanitation crews have a new cleanup job ahead.

A crowd stretched for blocks in Times Square last night to take part in a New Year's celebration that dates back to 1904. Security in Times Square was tighter than usual, eight months after a would-be terrorist attempted to detonate a car bomb nearby.

In Europe, Greeks, Irish and Spaniards partied through the night to help put a year of economic woe behind them.

Even communist Vietnam held a rare Western-style countdown to the new year.
