Michael Grimm for the Times Square Alliance

Times Square is an area of the city many New Yorkers tend to avoid. However, among the crowds of tourists and massive ads, there is a fascinating story to discover. On April 9th, you can join Untapped Cities and Times Square Alliance President Tim Tompkins for a behind-the-scenes tour through Times Square to see the area in a new light. From historic Broadway theaters to the flashy electronic billboards that light up this iconic district, guests will get an inside perspective on how the neighborhood has changed over the years. Learn how Times Square went from a gritty hotbed of crime and adult entertainment to the family-friendly attraction it is now, and what the future may hold as Tompkins discusses the area’s design, architecture, history, and innovative use of public space.
