    Molly and Beth Davis agree that mother knows best. That includes when it comes to finding a man for daughter Molly — even if it takes a billboard in Times Square. Last week, mom Beth did just that, when a 47-foot-by-25-foot ad went up at the crossroads of the world, right above Tonic. “Date my daughter” it reads, with a photo of 30-year-old Molly and the URL for her dating profile. It’s all part of Beth’s quest “to know I am leaving her in good hands.” Beth, a 61-year-old from Boston, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 and...

This year’s New Year’s Eve in Times Square will be a bit unconventional, as was last year’s. This year, the city is capping the number of in-person spectators to 15,000 as opposed to the tens of thousands of individuals who typically attend the annual event.
