The name of the square was given by the advertising Christmas tradition. And truly the American way to achieve his.

From the 18th century, this place was the center of agriculture. The area belonged to the commander and friend of Washington, John Scott, and after his children. But by 1904, Adolph Ochs, the publisher of one of the largest American newspapers, The New York Times, became fond of the territory. Ochs quickly established contacts with the then mayor of New York and achieved not only a place for his editorial office, but also the construction of a nearby metro station called Times Square. The publisher promoted the brand so desperately that it convinced even the officials.

The square was originally called Longacre Square. And everything would have remained so, had the editorial board not settled there finally. They were inspired by the idea of a New Year ritual: to draw even more attention to the brand, a symbolic Time Ball was attached to the spire of the office building, the ball went down during the coming of the new year, and then went backwards.

It seems that the simplest idea began to gather whole crowds and consolidated among the people a new name for the square - Times Square. And where a lot of people - there is a business, and advertising ...

However, advertising is an integral part of Times Square. But more about that below.

What's interesting?

Well, firstly, near Central Park. We will tell about it in more detail, but the location is the most successful - and it is difficult to get lost, and beauty is very close.

Secondly, this is a crossroads with a record cross - every day he passes about 300 thousand pedestrians, 120 thousand drivers and passengers. Almost 180 thousand people work in the buildings around Times Square. It may sound crazy, but the energy is crazy.

Thirdly, it was here in 1904 that the first advertisement in the world with electronic backlighting appeared. And it is with this thought that you need to go to this square, illuminated by huge advertising screens. Since 2008, all these giants work on the energy of wind and sun. They are called, by the way, spectaculars - they claim to be the most spectacular advertising in the world.

And fourth, this is the main cultural point of the whole of Manhattan. Theaters, cinemas, exhibition grounds, media companies, newspapers, galleries... Everything that has grown and is rich in American culture is here. And this layer was formed only because of them - enchanted people walking across the square. Already just to be here means to touch the history of the most famous metropolis of the world.

Daily broadcasts "Good morning, America!" Broadcast channel ABC from the studio is in Times Square. The cleanliness and order in the area of the square are followed by representatives of the offices located here, and in addition to business people, the most battered freaks of New York walk around the street. Times Square is valuable because it is from everyone and for everyone.

Anyone can walk on the legendary square - you just have to want it! And write to us at American Butler.

We are able to find interesting places even in the most pop places of America, so you cannot leave Times Square without joy and exclusivity.
