“All About New York State ~ Features ~ May 29, 2013”

A chilly but fun night on the town. I managed to capture this shot balaning my camera on top of a recycle bin in Times Square. The cops shot me a glance or two since this was right after the bombings in Boston.

I wanted to capture motion and color in the cabs while freezing as much detail in the crowd as possible.

Times Square is a major intersection in Manhattan, a borough of New York City, at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. The Times Square area consists of the blocks between Sixth and Eighth Avenues from east to west, and West 40th and West 53rd Streets from south to north, making up the western part of the commercial area of Midtown Manhattan.

Formerly named Longacre Square, Times Square was renamed after the Times Building (now One Times Square) in April 1904. Times Square, sometimes known as the “Crossroads of the World,” has achieved the status of an iconic world landmark and has become a symbol of New York City. Times Square is principally defined by its spectaculars, animated, digital advertisements.

The intersection of Broadway and 42nd Street, at the south-east corner of Times Square, is the Eastern Terminus of the Lincoln Highway, the first road across the United States of America.
