The Times Square Alliance has set up an area at the Times Square Visitor Center and Museum where fans can share their memories and pay their respects to Clark on its New Year's Eve Confetti Wishing Wall. The messages will be added to the one ton of confetti that will fall on New Year's Eve revelers in Times Square in 2013.

"For 40 years, Dick Clark has been an iconic part of New Year's Eve in Times Square, and we are encouraging New Yorkers and visitors to help us honor his legacy by sharing their messages and memories on our New Year's Eve Confetti Wishing Wall," said Tim Tompkins, president of the Times Square Alliance ."Dick was instrumental in making New Year's Eve at the Crossroads of the World what it is today. We remember and honor Dick for his lasting contribution to Times Square and his ability to bring us together every year to welcome in the New Year."

The Visitor Center will also have a photo montage with images from Clark's life for fans to take a look back on  his career.
