Times Square is a major intersection in Manhattan, at the junction of Broad
Avenue and Seventh Avenue,
stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets, making up the western part
of the commercial area of
Midtown, Manhattan. The theaters of Broadway and the huge number of animated
neon and led signs have
long made them a symbol of the intensely urban aspects of Manhattan. Times
Square is the only
neighborhood with zoning ordinances requiring building owners to display
McDonald's, sightseeing tour bus and taxi in Times Square. Mcdonald's is
smoke-free due to the NY smoking ordinance.
