I’m used to not thinking about Times Square. Anyone who has been in NYC for a while remembers when the area was not known for Lion Kings, family entertainment, and M&M’s by the pound.
Five weeks ago I asked how long it was going to be before the old newsstand on this location came down. I’m not surprised to see this new metallic and glass structure, but I’m not sure why they need more than a dozen orange and white barriers to protect the thing.
