Times Square is a major intersection in Manhattan, at the junction of Broad Avenue and Seventh Avenue,
stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets, making up the western part of the commercial area of
Midtown, Manhattan. The theaters of Broadway and the huge number of animated neon and led signs
have long made them a symbol of the intensely urban aspects of Manhattan. Times Square is the only
neighborhood with zoning ordinances requiring building owners to display illuminated signs.
