Signs of a city . . . . . . . . . . . . . 26

The Washington Times Weekly - - Page Two -

De­scribed by its pub­lisher as the first com­pre­hen­sive pic­to­rial his­tory of New York’s most fa­mous neigh­bor­hood, “Times Square Spec­tac­u­lar” is, as we say in the trade, lav­ishly il­lus­trated. Darcy Tell has as­sem­bled a gen­er­ous port­fo­lio of images de­tail­ing the color­ful de­vel­op­ment of the hour­glass-shaped acre formed by the in­ter­sec­tion of Broad­way and Sev­enth Av­enue be­tween 42nd and 47th streets, known as Long Acre Square be­fore Mayor Ge­orge McClel­lan changed its name to honor the New York Times’ trape­zoidal sky­scraper in 1904.
