I went on a business trip to the U.S. and took this opportunity to made a short-trip to New York. Although the trip was just one-and-a-half-day, I enjoyed New York very much. In this article, I will write about Times Square as part of Day 1.

After watching “Les Misérables” about which I wrote in the previous article, I will walk around Times Square at night.
To begin with, a billboard of “The Lion King” on the 45th street.
I have watched “The Lion King” twice, at New York and Singapore.
Other billboards on the 45th street.
“Aladdin”, which I have never watched.
There was also a UFC’s billboard.
Now I reached an intersection at 7th Avenue and Broadway, which was the main street of Times Square.
As you can see, there were so many tourists there.
A statue of George M. Cohan, who was called the father of broadway musical.
There was another statue of Francis P. Duffy, who used to governed the area.
From the Ruby-Red Stairs at TKTS, you can get a birds-eye view of Times Square.
Now, I took photos of Times Square from the center point.
With yellow cab.
This scenery was just like New York, wasn’t it?
Now I walked around the theater district where there were many playhouses for broadway shows.
Around “One Shubert Alley”, which sold goods related to broadway musical.
At Majestic Theatre where “The Phantom of the Opera” has been performed.
“The Phantom of the Opera” was the first musical I watched and I love it:)
I also saw police men who rode on horses at the theater district.
Now I came back the main street.
I found a signboard of SONY.
Around 42nd street.
Then, I went back to the hotel and finished my first day in New York.
That’s it for the article about Times Square at night as part of Day 1. If I am asked “Which spot do you imagine first about New York”, I will definitely say “Times Square”. Whenever I visit Times Square, it is always exciting and attractive.
In the next article, I will write about Brooklyn Bridge as part of Day 2.
