The New York City subway is like no other, an embodiment of the city itself. Gritty and unadorned, genuine and so real, never standing on ceremony; it’s efficient and gets right to the point. No wasted words, no wasted effort.
Times Square is also like no other, a very different embodiment of NYC. Everywhere you look is screaming for your attention, but with nothing substantive to say. It’s a playground, a canvas, a stage. A place to see and be seen with the 24/7 buzz of caffeinated energy.
