Photos of the Day: Jan. 2, 2013

A worker clears confetti from a sidewalk in Times Square after midnight on New Years Tuesday Jan. 1, 2013, in New York. With fireworks, concerts and celebrations from Hong Kong to New York, revelers welcome 2013 with hope for a better future after a year that thudded to a close with a disastrous storm, gun violence, and talk of economic turmoil from a looming fiscal cliff. This will be the first Times Square countdown in decades without Dick Clark, who died in April, and will be honored with a tribute concert and his name printed on pieces of confetti.
