Signbite : Times Square : July 30, 2011

In New York, all roads seem to lead to Times Square and it’s neon tenticles seem to be stretching further and further. We were amazed to hear that there is actually a MINIMUM for the amount of lux emitted by each building. So much for the environment. Times square really does transcend all barriers of understanding of architecture, urban planning and mass EVERYTHING…I am still trying to digest it. Is this the future of the urban environment?
