Times square

Times Square is the most emblematic square in New York. Surely if you have ever been, you know what it is like. Its triangular shape, the giant, bright advertisments on the buildings, the New Yorkers screen announcing the end of the season and the start of a one, I've seen it more than once. If you have the chance to travel there, you can also look for webcam, at ' http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/timessquare/' Times Square is the intersection of Seventh Avenue and Broadway. It is surrounded by theaters, where you can watch up to date music as well as long running shows like Cats, Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera, which have been running for over 20 years. The place that never sleeps, and there's always more crazy men singing, people celebrating simply being there, or an event sponsored by a major brand. To not miss what happens in the stock market or anywhere else in the world, you can take a look at the screens of NASDAQ, the American Stock Exchange Index, or put on live news. In this mecca of American culture, you can find everything imaginable that says "United States." The Hard Rock Cafe, McDonald's, Burger King, XXXXL clothing stores, souveniers for New York baseball teams, and more.

A world of neon

Times Square is not as you expect it: more! When you get here it is really aware of being in the hub of the world! Lights, sounds and colors at very high frequency (including the NY Police Department!), Neon that we lose the sense of time: Times Square never sleeps. A swarm of people all over the planet, tourists and residents, people who make a protest that mingle with those who give shopping. Beware of big screens, you may be 'victim' of an interactive animation! A Times Square also gave me the thrill of a sudden hailstorm: see covered in a white blanket is priceless.

Un mondo di neon

Times Square non è come ve l'aspettate: di più! Quando si arriva qui ci si rende veramente conto di essere nel fulcro del mondo! Luci suoni e colori ad altissima frequenza (compresi quelli del NY Police Department!), neon che fanno perdere il senso del tempo: Times Square non dorme mai. Un brulichio di gente di ogni parte del pianeta, turisti e residenti, persone che fanno una protesta che si mescolano a quelle che danno shopping. Fate attenzione ai megaschermi, potreste essere 'vittima' di un'animazione interattiva!
A me Times Square ha regalato anche l'emozione di una improvvisa grandinata: vederla coperta di una coltre bianca non ha prezzo.

The whirlwind of souls

Neon lights, giant LED screens touting thousand and one products, services and pleasures and whose power makes it totally unnecessary to use lampposts across the plaza, hurried steps, mouths open in surprise and thousands of cameras and video who want to immortalize the sacred time when their owners are in that place dreamed, in that heart of the Big Apple that have so often seen in movies, magazines and have heard both. But it was not always so great and so good picture. In the 60s there were many sex shops, peep shows and extravagant characters rubbed shoulders with prostitutes and junkies. Now change your image is more polished, especially after radical change, facelift was given to the city in 1990. Never lost his unmistakable theatrical image, especially the weekend when the streets are filled and everyone is rushing to not be late for any of the functions that represent Broadway. Today it is a place of exchange of images, ideas, feelings, but before it was to trade until the arrival of Subway in 1904. Subways and the New York Times, he named the area was once known as Long Acre Square, which introduced the famous mega party which has been held every December 31 and has become inseparable image of New York. This "Crossroads of the World" as well have had to baptize, has everything most restless minds and hearts can desire: the MTV studios with large windows to the street to see the famous a little closer, a huge Disney Store, the big announcements and brand boutiques, the latest in mobile posters, a screen where you can see live as he greets family members or recording presence known Good Morning America. Each year welcomes over 26 million tourists who come to enjoy all this and mega theaters like the Ford Center or New Amsterdam, or just a walk through this space really is not triangular and Times Square .... Square will continue to be the source of information and leisure Sassy has ever seen, and not just another public square in the world like her.

El torbellino de las almas

Luces de neón, gigantescas pantallas led que promocionan mil y un productos, servicios y placeres y cuya potencia hace que sea totalmente innecesario el uso de farolas en toda la plaza, pasos apresurados, bocas abiertas por la sorpresa y miles de cámaras de fotos y vídeo que quieren inmortalizar el momento sagrado en el que sus dueños se encuentran en ese lugar soñado, en ese corazón de la Gran Manzana que tantas veces han visto en películas, revistas y del que tanto han oído hablar.

Pero no siempre fue tan espectacular y con tan buena imagen. En los años 60 abundaban los sex shops, los peep shows y los personajes extravagantes que se codeaban con prostitutas y yonkis. Ahora en cambio su imagen es más pulida, sobre todo después del cambio radical, el lavado de cara que se le dio a la ciudad en 1990. No perdió nunca su inconfundible imagen teatral, sobre todo el fin de semana, cuando se llenan las calles y todo el mundo se apresura para no llegar tarde a cualquiera de las funciones que se representan en Broadway.

Hoy en día es un lugar de intercambio de imágenes, de ideas, de sensaciones, pero antes lo fue de intercambios comerciales hasta la llegada del metro en 1904. El metro y el periódico New York Times, que bautizó la zona que antes era conocida como Long Acre Square, y que instauró la mega famosa fiesta que se viene celebrando cada 31 de diciembre y que se ha convertido en imagen inseparable de Nueva York.
Esta " Encrucijada del Mundo" como han tenido a bien bautizarla, tiene todo lo que las mentes y corazones más inquietos pueden desear: los estudios de la MTV con grandes cristaleras a la calle para ver a los famosos un poco más cerca, una enorme Disney Store, los grandes anuncios de marcas y tiendas de moda, las últimas noticias en carteles móviles, una pantalla donde uno puede verse en directo mientras saluda a sus familiares o presencia la grabación del conocido Good Morning América.

Cada año acoge a más de 26 millones de turistas que vienen a disfrutar de todo eso y de los mega teatros como el Ford Center o el New Amsterdam, o simplemente a pasear por este espacio que realmente es triangular y no cuadrado....
Times Square seguirá siendo la fuente de información y ocio más descarada que se haya visto jamás, y sencillamente no hay otra plaza pública en el mundo como ella.

A lit endlessly

In the heart of Manhattan what we see with our eyes changed by simply turning a corner of Broadway. Before us lies a lighted ad nauseum, with ads that come and go, moving. Countless lights welcomes the traveler who enters first in Times Square, one of the most famous squares in the world and millions and millions of tourists visit every year. It could be defined as a place of excess spending, unlimited consumerism, reflected in ads there for all facades. Everyone is trying to attract attention with bright colors, shocking videos or anything else that comes to mind. Lights and impressions aside, the place was so named for being there in the first place the New York Times. It became so famous that when the daily change of venue and continued calling. In addition, they got into the habit of celebrating every year the chimes of New Year's Eve and are among the most impressive of the entire planet, mainly by the striking of the thousands of lights you have around you. Here we find, among others, the Hard Rock Café, shop M & M's, Bubba Gump's store (Yes, I Forrest Gump), the Nasdaq, sportswear shops and theaters. Once in the middle of the square will certainly look this way and that, looking for different things, listing almost imperceptible and panels that change with a movie and you are hooked. Just do not advertise very cheap, in case anyone was thinking it.

Un lugar iluminado hasta la saciedad

En pleno centro de Manhattan lo que vemos con nuestros ojos cambia con sólo girar una esquina de la calle Broadway. Ante nosotros se abre un lugar iluminado hasta la saciedad, con anuncios que van y vienen, que se mueven. Un sinfín de luces recibe al viajero que entra por primera vez en Times Square, una de las plazas más famosas de todo el mundo y que millones y millones de turistas visitan al año. Podría definirse como un lugar de exceso, de gasto, de consumismo sin límite, reflejado en los anuncios que hay por todas las fachadas. Todos tratan de llamar la atención con vivos colores, vídeos impactantes o cualquier otra cosa que se les ocurra.
Luces e impresiones aparte, la plaza se denominó así por estar allí en un primer momento el New York Times. Se hizo tan famosa que cuando cambió de sede el rotativo se siguió llamando así. Además, se cogió la costumbre de celebrar todos los años las campanadas de nochevieja y son unas de las más impactantes de todo el planeta, principalmente por lo llamativo de las miles de luces que hay a tu alrededor.
Aquí podemos encontrar, entre otros, el Hard Rock Café, la tienda M&M´S, la tienda de Bubba Gump (Si, lo de Forrest Gump), el Nasdaq, tiendas de ropa deportiva y teatros.
Una vez en medio de la plaza no dejará de mirar a un lado y a otro, buscando cosas distintas, anuncios casi imperceptibles y paneles que cambian a modo de película y te van enganchando.
Eso sí, no es muy barato anunciarse, por si alguno lo estaba pensando.

With the optics of a child

I bring you a video of the place recorded partly by me and partly by my son. Both recordings are with the eyes of a child as with so many lights, stress, people, cars, cops, sirens and experiences, you can not only look around you with that vision. This August 13, 2010 has opened a huge statue which reproduces the famous kiss between a sailor and a nurse, immortalized by photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt in the central square of New York at the end of World War II. The size of nearly eight meters high, is part of the commemoration of the 65th anniversary of the end of the war, with the announcement of Japan's surrender on August 15, 1945. Entitled 'Unconditional Surrender' Just I visited the day after inauguration, coincidences of life.

Con la óptica de un niño

Os aporto un vídeo del lugar grabado en parte por mí y parte por mi hijo. Ambas grabaciones son con la óptica de un niño pues ante tantas luces, stress, gente, coches, policias, sirenas y experiencias, no puedes más que observar a tu alrededor con esa visión.

Este 13 de agosto de 2010 se ha inaugurado una enorme estatua que reproduce el famoso beso entre un marinero y una enfermera, inmortalizado por el fotógrafo Alfred Eisenstaedt en la céntrica plaza de Nueva York al término de la II Guerra Mundial. La talla, de casi ocho metros de alto, forma parte de los actos conmemorativos del 65 aniversario del fin de la contienda, con el anuncio de la rendición de Japón el 15 de agosto de 1945.
Titulada 'Rendición incondicional'
Justamente yo la visité al día siguiente de inaugurarse, casualidades de la vida.

Neon jungle

Times Square is New York. All mixed. Apples from nearby and you can go see the light that emerges from the thousands of neon advertising and there will not be a time when there are no people. Located at the intersection of Broadway Avenue and 7 Avenue, named after The New York Times, which formerly Tenan their offices here. Encontrars everything and although is highly targeted to tourists, nothing happens, is just moln. It is here where Year's Eve party is held, waiting for every ball for 60 seconds. How many times have we said, a year of hese celebrate it all. But beware, this area has been as only a short time (early 90s) ago. Before these years, the area was characterized as dangerous, with drug dealers on every corner and hundreds of cinemas X. Surely hayis as seen in movies of that era. Much has changed with what is now. And not only is to live by night, to give the same impression. As I said, here I never stop.

Jungla de neones

Times Square es “Nueva York”. Todo mezclado.
Desde las manzanas cercanas ya se puede ir viendo la luz que se desprende de los miles de neones publicitarios y no habrá un momento en el que no haya gente.
Situado en la intersección de la Avenida Broadway y 7ª Avenida, toma el nombre de The New York Times, que tenían antiguamente aquí sus oficinas. Encontrarás de todo y aunque esté muy dirigido al turista, no pasa nada, es igual de molón.
Es aquí donde se celebra la fiesta de Fin de Año, esperando “la caída de la bola” durante 60 segundos. Cuántas veces habremos dicho: “un año de éstos lo celebramos allí”.
Pero ojo, esta zona sólo ha estado así desde hace poco tiempo (principios de los 90). Antes de estos años, la zona se caracterizaba por ser peligrosa, con vendedores de drogas en cada esquina y cientos de cines “X”. Seguramente la hayáis visto así en películas de esa época. Mucho ha cambiado con lo que es ahora.
Y no sólo es para vivirla de noche, de día impresiona igual. Como dije antes, aquí nunca se para.

Times Square is one of the most famous and busiest places in the world. You can not go wrong when trying to Times Square for the moment you set foot in this area, one is overwhelmed by the enormity and the abundance of advertisements. In addition, it is a place extremely popular especially by tourists means more often speak foreign languages ​​and the U.S. 9/10 people have cameras in hand, I would call this place short of true "anthill" . Times Square is also a place full of souvenir shops, there is also a shop M & Ms huge and can often cross the corner of a pedestrian crossing one of those famous Naked Cow Cow Boy or Girl!

Times Square est l'un des endroits les plus célèbres et les plus animés au monde. On ne peut pas se tromper quand on cherche Times Square car à l'instant où l'on met le pied dans ce secteur, on est submergé par le gigantisme et l'abondance des publicités. De plus, c'est un endroit extrêment fréquenté notamment par les touristes, on entend plus souvent parler des langues étrangères que l'américain et 9/10 des personnes ont des appareils photos en main, bref je qualifierai cet endroit de véritable "fourmilière". Times Square est également un lieu qui regorge de boutiques de souvenirs, on y trouve aussi une boutique M&Ms immense et on peut souvent croiser au détour d'un passage piéton un de ces célèbres Naked Cow Boy ou Cow Girl!

New york i love you

It happened at the beginning of this summer, specifically the end of May 2011. My two sisters and I decided to take a trip to New York to meet the most spectacular and cosmopolitan capital city in the world ... We spent about 9 days with some friends on the Lower East Side, which was an advantage, not only by location, but by the wealth of practical advice that we got to see, feel and know the city ... We had thousands of experiences, sensations and feelings that made our first trip to the "City", we stay in love with her. Now we can only revive our journey among the hundreds and hundreds of photographs to cherish the journey and hope that before long we can repeat as little experience as spectacular as was ours.

New york i love you

Sucedió al comienzo de este verano, en concreto finales de Mayo 2011. Mis dos hermanas y yo decidimos realizar un viaje a New York a conocer la capital mas espectacular y cosmopolita del mundo... Pasamos unos 9 días en casa de unas amigas en el Lower East Side, lo cual fue una ventaja, no solo por localización, sino por la ingente cantidad de consejos prácticos que nos dieron para ver, sentir y conocer la ciudad...Tuvimos miles de vivencias, sensaciones y sentimientos que hicieron que en nuestro primer viaje a la "City", nos quedáramos prendados de ella. Ahora solo nos queda revivir nuestro viaje entre los cientos y cientos de fotografías que atesoramos del viaje y esperar que a no mucho tardar podamos repetir como poco una experiencia tan espectacular como fue la nuestra.

The famous, the inevitable Times Square. At night, of course, is one of the most popular places in New York, it shines, it flashes a true nightclub ... Day the place has its charm, if you can call it charming. It is a very touristy place actually rather intriguing, so the streets are full of vendors, picture frames, painters near you draw the portrait or caricature you (chick?), A place that abounds, cameras wielded all 2 meters ... In summer it is nice to sit at one of the tables set up in this place, this is not a restaurant or a bar, you can sit out without tickets, and let you enter the incessant flow. Strange indeed ... And there is a recruitment center of the army in the middle of it all! Anyway, good find!

Le fameux, l'incontournable Times Square. De nuit, évidemment, c'est un des endroits les plus courus de New-York, ça brille, ça clignote, une véritable boîte de nuit... De jour l'endroit a son charme, si l'on peut appeler ça du charme. C'est un endroit plutôt intrigant en réalité, très touristique donc les rues sont pleines de vendeurs de photos, cadres, de peintres près à vous tirer le portrait ou vous caricaturer (chiche ?), endroit qui fourmille, appareils photo brandis tous les 2 mètres... L'été il est bon s'installer à une des tables installées à cet endroit, ce n'est ni un restaurant ni un bar, vous pouvez vous installer sans sortir les billets, et vous laisser pénétrer par le flot incessant. Étrange en vérité... Et il y a un centre de recrutement de l'armée au beau milieu de tout ça ! Bref, bonne découverte !

Time square

Like many places in New York, Time Square is one of the things that you know obviously. For example, you may have seen an episode of CSI New York whose decor this iconic site in New York. Anyway, enough of blah. Times Square is the main square at the intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue full screen advertising of any kind, and eccentric shops (eg, M & M's World, the Disney store, etc.). When we were there in April, there was even a mini-football game held in the streets, just in front of Walgreen. There are also several places for you to be on one of the many displays for a few seconds. Many things can be done in Times Square, including, book tickets to a Broadway show at the TKTS counter ("tickets" I presume).

Time square

Comme beaucoup d'endroits à New York, Time Square fait partie des choses que vous connaissez forcément. Vous avez par exemple peut-être vu un épisode des Experts Manhattan ayant pour décor cette place emblématique de New York.
Bref, trêve de blabla. Time Square c'est cette grande place au croisement de Brodway et la 7th Avenue pleine d'écran publicitaires en tout genre, et de boutiques farfelues (par exemple, le M&M's World, le magasin Disney, etc). Quand nous y étions en Avril, il y avait même un mini-match de football américain organisé dans une des rues, juste en face du Walgreen. Vous trouverez aussi plusieurs endroits vous permettant d'être sur l'un des nombreux écrans pendant quelques secondes. Beaucoup de choses peuvent-être faites à Time Square, et notamment, réserver des tickets pour un show à Broadway au guichet TKTS (« tickets » je présume).

Times square

After the Statue of Liberty, Times Square remains the most symbolic place in New York. We've all seen at least once its lights and huge ublicitaires panels in a film. When you get there, day and night, this area is impressive. It feels immensely dwarfed those towers that never end, oppressive, with their info and pubs flashes continuously. One could easily get lost, prices in the flow of tourists and passers-by that disguise.

Times square

Après la Statue de la Liberté, Times Square reste l'endroit le plus symbolique de New York. On a tous déjà vu au moins une fois ses lumières et ses énormes panneaux ublicitaires dans un film. Quand on y arrive, de jour comme de nuit, ce quartier impressionne. On se sent immensément petit face à ces tours qui n'en finissent pas, oppressantes, avec leurs flashs infos et pubs en continue. On pourrait facilement s'y perdre, prix dans le flux des touristes et celui des passants déguisés.

Time square by night

Before I go to NYC, I had in my head many images of Times Square. In fact, even before there, you already think you know everything ... But once there, you literally enter another dimension. . And if one places NYC can inspire this new dimension is undoubtedly Time Square. Day is already amazing at night, it is close to the magic! This is why I advise you to take a ride "by night", "New York, the city that never sleeps" with Times Square as a symbol. . In short, I have no special advisor to Time Square activities, if not to enjoy all that is offered to you.

Time square by night

Avant de me rendre à NYC, j'avais dans ma tête de nombreuses images de Time Square. En fait, avant même d'être sur place, on croit déjà tout connaître ... Mais une fois sur place, vous entrez littéralement dans une autre dimension.
.
Et si un des lieux de NYC peut vous inspirer cette nouvelle dimension, c'est sans aucun doute Time Square. De jour, c'est déjà extraordinaire, de nuit, on est proche de la féerie ! C'est pourquoi, je vous conseille d'y faire un tour "by night": "New York, la ville qui ne dort jamais" avec Time Square comme symbole.
.
En bref, je n'ai pas d'activités particulières à vous conseiller à Time Square, si ce n'est de profiter de tout ce qui s'offre à vos yeux.
