The Changing Face of Times Square

The Changing Face of Times Square

Having self quarantined since last Sunday, I decided I needed to see the change in Times Square for myself. The isolation and emptiness is overwhelming. It was 7:30 on a Saturday night and the streets for the most part were empty. The biggest gathering was at the TKTS steps. They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway and even minus the crowds they are.

Honoring America on 49th Street
9th Ave a police car and an ambulance
A man screaming for self quarantine and more Government disclosure
Two masked bicyclists
New World Stages
The lights of Broadway still shine.
A few people out, almost all tourists. As you can see all the Broadway shows have their lights on. Kinda a waste of electricity.
Walking down Broadway
Hadestown lights up the night
A few food vendors existed
This is the AP who has set up shop
TKTS booth at 7:30 on a Saturday night
Announcing no shows until April 11
The TKTS Stairs where the most people have gathered
The lights on almost all the stores also remains on
a police car but no policemen
They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway
Their lights never went on
A darkened Sardis
Thier notice
The doors to Phantom gleam golden
Yes, Shake Shack did have customers, but no line and only one
8th Ave 8pn Saturday night
Th lights burn bright for a show scheduled not to open
Not a soul around
ironically the only shop open was a Chinese based NY gift store. I thought we were on lockdown?
Restaurant row darkened
Bikes were the transportation of choice
The firehouse that saved us during 9/11
