    New construction pics on emporis show this one is out of the ground. This site deserves a MUCH taller building. The design is ok, but for Times Square I think this tower should have been 500-600 feet.

    I agree there. Certainly something with views of Times Square itself.

    Betty Boop's Playground

    By KATHRYN BELGIORNO
    Published: July 10, 2005

    THE little-known 1933 short film called "Stoopnocracy" opens with two cartoon dogs driving a truck painted with the words "Nut House Wagon." A dispatcher's voice commands them to "go to 1600 Broadway - big nuts just broke loose!"

    It wasn't such an outlandish observation. Back then, the building at 1600 Broadway, on the corner of 48th Street, was the real-life home to Fleischer Studios, where the winsome young brunette Betty Boop was born and countless irreverent shorts like "Stoopnocracy" were churned out. It is easy to see how the film's creators might have fancied themselves nuts; they were working for the biggest animation company in the East Coast and producing films, some 600 in all, noted for their clever gags and surreal images. The same year "Stoopnocracy" was made, the studio headed by Max Fleischer animated a comic strip character who, in his heyday, proved more popular than Mickey Mouse. His name was Popeye...

    But last December, the old Studebaker Building at 1600 Broadway, which had housed the studio, was razed to make way for luxury condominiums. The only trace of the cartoon animation empire that existed there from 1923 to 1938 is the Betty Boop paraphernalia for sale at a string of gift shops on a nearby block of Seventh Avenue.

    All the renderings I've seen show this building from the west. Even on the www.1600broadway.com website.

    Anyone seen renderings of the south facade?

    This will be a nice building. It looks like it will have retail in the lower floors. I hope there's a nice bookstore. Times Square needs one.

    More likely a restaurant and a coffee thing and a bank.

    The ground floor of that building might have been just right for a smallish theatre. Instant prominence.
