Historic Streets of the World


Times Square, New York City, New York, USA

One of New York City's top tourist attractions, Times Square is where Broadway crosses over the intersection of 7th Avenue and W 45th Street. A totally bonkers display of flashing lights, huge screens and signs illuminate this stretch of road at night – however, it hasn't always been like this. In the 19th century the area was the center of New York City's horse carriage industry, until the first electrified advert appeared in 1904, just three weeks after the area was renamed Times Square.
