Venue Description: Times Square is a major intersection at the heart of midtown Manhattan, found between Broadway and 7th Avenue, stretching from 42nd Street to 47th Street. Known as ?the crossroads of the world,? this junction is a world landmark and icon of New York City. Formerly named Longacre Square, the southeast intersection of the square is part of what was once known as Lincoln Highway, the first road across the United States. The area was renamed Times Square in 1904, and the first sign was lit there three weeks later. As one of the most concentrated and vivid markets in the world, Times Square boasts colossal, illuminated billboards. These advertisements are called Spectaculars, and the largest of their kind are known as JumboTrons. Times Square now rivals Las Vegas, since advertisers are required to include movement and light on their boards. Notable billboards include the seven-story curved NASDAQ sign, installed in 2000. In October 2006, News Corp. took over the Panasonic Astro Vision screen in the middle of Times Square and began airing the Fox News Channel. Times Square is perhaps most famous for its New Year?s Eve ball drop, which began in 1907. Since then, the event has attracted hundred of thousands of people to the site every year to ring in the New Year. A new energy-efficient LED ball was introduced on the eve of 2009. The most famous storefronts in the square include Toy?s ?R? Us, Hershey?s, M&M?s, Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, and Planet Hollywood. Also located there are ABC?s Times Square Studios, MTV?s studios, and the site of Good Morning America?s live broadcast. TKTS offers tickets for Broadway and off-Broadway shows at a 25-50 percent discount. Times Square is an iconic part of the Big Apple.
