The New Times Square: Groundbroken

The groundbreaking was this week.  The old situation was intolerable, the interim reallocation of street space to pedestrians was a huge improvement, and the installation of permanent fixtures should *ahem* cement Times Square's place as one of the great public spaces the City offers.

To tourists.  Still too crowded for my liking, but I get my ritual fill when we have friends and family from out of town.  I'm looking forward to a much better space to take them through the next time I'm so afflicted.
