Curious about the new pedestrian area in Times Square, I dropped by Tuesday evening. What I found was a portion of Broadway temporarily blocked off from car traffic. It was scattered with lawn chairs.
I'd read about the lawn chairs in the paper but seeing them was another thing. They were pulled into informal groups and were all over the place. Almost all were in use. Meanwhile the lights of Times Square danced all around. It seemed very odd, as if at any moment, people would break out into song and dance.
I'm sure we're just in the test stages of this space, and that planters and kiosks selling food and drink will soon come. For now, it's just a place where you can catch your breath.
