Welcome to Times Square!
Broadway's huge number of animated neon and television-style signage have
long made it one of New York's iconic symbols, and a symbol of the intensely
urban Manhattan. Times Square is the only neighborhood in New York with a
zoning ordinance requiring tenants to display bright signs. The density of
illuminated signs in Times Square now rivals Las Vegas.

For the past century, Times Square has been a mecca for music and the arts.
Times Square was home to the music publishing industry, "Tin Pan Alley",
which shaped American music during the first half of the 20th Century. The
word "Broadway" means theater throughout the world. Broadway's shows
represent the biggest, the brightest, and the most of their kind - popular
live theater. The dazzling lights of the Great White Way's theaters have
fascinated fans nationwide for over a century. To attend a Broadway show is
to be part of an event that millions travel from around the world to enjoy,
and millions more simply dream about.
