    This new one at Seventh & W 47th is being called "20 Times Square" (not sure where that leaves the never-gonna-be-built tower over the Port Authority Bus Terminal, which has a thread here titled "Proposed - Port Authority Tower (20 Times Square) - West 42nd Street at Eighth Avenue") ...

    Isn't a city block only 264 feet (88 yards), shorter than a football field, not even including the end zones?

    1535 is the angle of Broadway, so the block face might be longer than the standard block facing a NYC avenue.

    And remember, it's Real Estate & PR guys claiming this (so a big grain of salt is needed): "... said to stretch the length of a football field"

    This will look amazing. When flying over Manhattan at night, Times Sq has always stood out due to all the lights. Now, it will stand out more than ever.

    SL Green just bought the crappy Smilers on the corner by 740 7th. I hope that they buy the Rockefeller Group's adjacent assemblage where Manny's used to be. That block is such an eyesore, and Rockefeller has done nothing with it.

    Whenever I've passed the new Marriott sign , it's displaying the most boring graphics ever. Solid colors with a few words. Take advantage of that thing! It's like boasting that you have a grand piano and playing "mary had a little lamb" with one finger.

    Cool video, LeCom. Oh the humanity! NYers who love people watching but hate Times Square should come here anyway; they'll never be bored.

    Btw I didn't know people still wore Swatches lol!

    Here’s our first look at what commercial heavyweights SL Green have in mind for a small Times Square corner at 719 Seventh Avenue and West 48th Street. Building permits filed earlier this month call for a four-story, 9,000 square-foot retail building designed by TPG Architecture. Demolition permits were filed back in December and the doomed three-story structure is already shrouded in construction netting and scaffolding. The site also shares its Seventh Avenue block-front with Witkoff’s upcoming 40-story Marriott Edition Hotel that will flash one of the largest LED displays in the city. Read more....
