Times Square With Love

Just open this morning at 11 am is the new installation “XXX Times Square with Love,” from Times Square Arts and J. Mayer H. Now, instead of hurrying through Times Square to avoid the tourists, you can literally lie down in the public space – that is, if you can get a spot. The X-shaped loungers, which can accommodate up to four people lying down, were inspired by the shape of the intersection at Broadway and 7th Avenue. Not mentioned in the press release, but an obvious reference, is the XXX past of Times Square, notoriously cleaned up in the late ’90s and early 2000s.

An added bonus is a Strand kiosk, a modernized version of the bookstore’s outpost at Central Park. Times Square Arts is promoting the hasthag #TSqXXX, which looks like it’s just getting started.
