Just about everyone who visits New York dreams of seeing Times Square, all its neon lights and the energy of the crowds.  Not me.  I find it to be everything plastic and processed in America packaged up and served on a blinking platter.  But since I was staying on the cusp of Times Square and the Garment District, I ended up spending a lot of time there, from the six block walk between my hotel and meetings to the evening hours I had to myself.

What do you think?  Do you have a favorite photo below?

Times Square Photo #1.  When I walk through Times Square, I feel like Madison Avenue is screaming at me…

Times Square Photo #2. …through a bull horn.

Times Square Photo #3.  After all that happened in Boston last week, security was increased on and around Times Square.  The men and women who serve our society — be they police officers, fire fighters, or members of the armed forces — are true, every day heroes.  Even if it was in an ad, I loved seeing them honored.

  1. 1 is my favourite, but I like 3 because of the drama in the image – the firefighters. Mind you, I like the legs in the second one too 😆

  2. I love them all, but the caption you put on the last one is so true! Love that they are being appreciated 🙂

  3. New York to me is way too cluttered and I do believe it screams at us. We are constantly bombarded with ads for everything … everywhere we go. I like #3. Great shots.
