I do not *heart* Times Square

Our offices moved over the weekend into some lovely new space in Times Square. This has lopped almost five minutes (in each direction) off of my commute, something that would generally be viewed as a positive. I now walk straight down either 47th or 46th Street, both of which have massive construction closing portions of the already crowded sidewalks. As I was making my way to the office this morning, I reminisced fondly of walking through the wide, pedestrian-only streets around Rockefeller Center, with flower pots and public art. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Times Square makes my skin crawl.

Maybe you and your co-workers can compete to see who gets stopped and asked for directions the most.... double the points if they ask you to take their picture!
