Morning View – West 42nd Street

This shot was taken from the 14th floor outside deck of the AMC Theatre on 42nd Street, looking north. That green-roofed building is the current headquarters of the New York Times at 43rd & Broadway. In 1904, Longacre Square was renamed Times Square when the Times built their first home on 42nd Street, the building now topped by the giant cup of soup sign. The Times is building its 3rd brand new home right next to where this picture was taken, at 8th Avenue and 41st Street.
