Times Square is the most popular area among tourists from all over the world. It is situated at the crossroads of Broadway and Seventh Avenue between 42nd and 47th streets. This place is closed for transport, so pedestrians can safely walk along it, enjoying the bright billboards, spectaculars and magnificent high buildings.
In the early twentieth century here was the headquarters of one of the most popular newspapers in America "New York Times", that is why this place got its name, although previously this area was known as Longacre Square.
On New Year's night in 1904 the editorial staff organized a celebration on this square with fireworks and since then thousands of New York residents and visitors joined this tradition.
You can also enjoy spectacular views of Times Square using the online webcam, which in real time can take you to Times Square. Incredible viewing angle and good location of the camera gives you the best views of the brightest billboards and posters. But the most unforgettable views are available at night, when Times Square shines with all the colors of the rainbow, illuminating everything around with the millions of bulbs and lights!
