Times Square is the most visited tourist attraction in the world. It’s where New Year’s Eve is celebrated and televised, where Broadway theaters converge (it’s actually located within the Theater District) and the ultimate destination for businesses to advertise on the largest billboards and LED screens in the world.
The office buildings in this area include One Times Square, Thomson Reuters Building, One Astor Place, the Brill Building, the Bertelsmann Building and many, many more.
Rents range from $52/sf to over $92/sf for Class A buildings, $40/sf to $60/sf for Class B buildings and $30/sf to $43/sf for Class C buildings.
It’s easy to get to and from Times Square as the transit choices include the 1,2,3 4, 5, 6, A, C, E, N, Q, R, S, B, D, F, M and 7 trains.
With a heavy police presence, working in Times Square is best described as a cross between controlled mayhem and an east coast Disneyland (Mickey and Minnie included as well as Elmo, Batman, Hello Kitty and an assortment of Super Heroes on every corner.)
