A rather haunting perspective on New York Times Square, like a beginning of a nightmare.​

Times Square is the most visited New York landmark. It boasts to be the centre of the world.

Nicknames include 'The Crossroads of the World' and 'The Great White Way', and reportedly 'The Tenderloin' because it was supposedly the most desirable location in Manhattan in the 1920s. 

The 1929 stock market crash took its toll on the area, with many businesses moving out of the area to be replace with seedier forms of entertainment, including pornographic "peep shows".

The location has been used in numerous films, including Vanilla Sky when it is depicted as eerily quiet, and a post-apocalyptic version in I Am Legend.

In February 2017 , Times Square became smoke free.
