Early morning

Times Square at 7:30 a.m.

It’s my favorite time to be there. Still going, still flashing and undulating and blinking … but it starts to feel like a post-Rapture kind of environment. Yes, there are people, but not to the degree that you see at mid-day or around 6:30 at night, which is really when you want to stay far away from Times Square.

I like it best at dawn.

    Me, too! I have been known to get up early to see Time Square, just like some people get up early to watch the sunrise.

    See, now that is one of the sights of our country I haven’t seen yet, but really want to!

    It looks really different in the morning!

    I remember being there one afternoon in the fall of ’98, on my way to a wedding in Central Park, sitting in the back of a taxi and being overwhelmed–stunned–by all the flashing visuals.

    Was there early on a Sunday morning when I was there in late ’03. I agree. Fantastic.
