Getting Caught in Times Square
Typically I avoid Times Square. I enjoyed the area while working at Reuters and running over to the Nasdaq for reports. However otherwise, I find it's best to avoid the tourist traffic.
Yet this weekend I jumped right in the middle of it. Recently the city closed parts of Broadway to traffic and opened what you may call a pedestrian beach. Right where people wait in line for discount theatre tickets, they've placed lawn chairs for people to relax. Then, on the edge of the beach and where the street traffic resumes, there is this chair shaped like a mitt.
