I still think there are enough older buildings in the surroundings that would make a restored 1 times square fit right in. You have the knickerbocker building and more importantly the paramount building which is right across the street. I think the contrast in between the old and new would also allow it to have more weight. It would immediately catch the eye and be a testimony to how far NYC has gone. But that said this is only in my very utopian view and I doubt anything of the old building is left under that facade so the second best option for me would be, like you said a landmark tower to dominate the area.
Where the Cats sign is next door will be yet another ENORMOUS video screen. This area will be so bright at night!
I’ve always loved how this tower slopes out over 42nd St!
Nice pictures, Michelangelo! ^^
woah woah woah…since when did they change the crane?
Nice update Robert! Progress is noticeable.
Thanks, NYC-1. This will fly up now.
