New YorkCity is always perfect for 4K walking. TimesSquare is a lot of things: a major commercial intersection, tourist destination, entertainment center, and neighborhood in the Midtown Manhattan section of New YorkCity, at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue. May be no other place is so brightly lit by numerous billboards and advertisements. It stretches from West 42nd to West 47th Streets and 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". One of the world's busiest pedestrian areas, it is also the hub of the Broadway Theater District and a major center of the world's entertainment industry. TimesSquare is one of the world's most visited tourist attractions, drawing an estimated 50 million visitors annually. Approximately 330,000 people pass through TimesSquare daily, many of them tourists, while over 460,000 pedestrians walk through TimesSquare on its busiest days.
Formerly known as Longacre Square, TimesSquare was renamed in 1904 after The New YorkTimes moved its headquarters to the then newly erected Times Building, now One TimesSquare. It is the site of the annual New Year's Eve ball drop, which began on December 31, 1907, and continues to attract over a million visitors to TimesSquare every year.
TimesSquare functions as a town square, but is not geometrically a square: it is closer in shape to a bowtie, with two triangles emanating roughly north and south from 45th Street, where Seventh Avenue intersects Broadway. Broadway runs diagonally, crossing through the horizontal and vertical street grid of Manhattan laid down by the Commissioners' Plan of 1811, and that intersection creates the "bowtie" shape of TimesSquare.
The southern triangle of TimesSquare has no specific name, but the northern triangle is officially Duffy Square. It was dedicated in 1937 to World War We chaplain Father Francis P. Duffy of New YorkCity's U.S. 69th Infantry Regiment and is the site of a memorial to him. There is also a statue of composer and entertainer George M. Cohan, and the TKTS ticket booth for Broadway theaters.
