If you’re visiting New York, a stop in Times Square is almost obligatory. And, while those of us who live here will usually walk twenty blocks out of our way in the rain to avoid the place, Times Square does have a certain charm, if you know where to look. And, lucky for you, we do!
So, why is Times Square called “The Crossroads of the World”?
Why do we drop a ball here on New Year’s Eve?
Who is Olive Thomas and why does her ghost allegedly haunt Broadway’s New Amsterdam theater?
How can you get to and from your matinee while still managing to avoid the sea of costumed panhandlers?
