Times Square


Times Square

Times Square, formerly known as Longacre Square, is a significant business intersection, tourist attraction, entertainment center, and neighborhood in New York City’s Midtown Manhattan area. It is sometimes referred to as “the Crossroads of the World“, “the Center of the Universe“, “the Heart of the Great White Way“, and “the Heart of the World“.  

Times Square is one of the busiest pedestrian districts in the world, as well as the hub of the Broadway Theater District and a key center of the world’s entertainment industry.  Times Square is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, attracting an estimated 50 million people each year.

Times Square was renamed in 1904 after The New York Times relocated its headquarters to the newly constructed Times Building, today is known as One Times Square. It is the location of the annual New Year’s Eve ball drop, which began on December 31, 1907, and continues to draw over a million visitors each year!
