Pin It now! The first photo.... Times Square, the crossroads of the world. I think Times Square epitomizes what non-New Yorkers think New York actually is. Bright, fast-paced, larger than life. Of course there's more to New York City than this relatively small (and exaggerated) neighborhood. I wanted to start this year's project though with a photo that screams New York City (if you asked a thousand random people around the world).
