Join this in-app audio tour to experience one of the earth's lightest, most crowded, and most controversial places - Times Square! It will be challenging. This spot is quite packed. Advertising, neon signs, lots of lights, and thousands of cameras will turn your head. However, this city rhythm makes us come to NYC, does not it? Start the tour discovering bustling 6th Avenue close to Rockefeller Center. There you find a rare example of Beaux-art style and pass the skyscraper that sheltered the serial killer. Next, this tour will bring you to the New York Times building – the house of the legendary newspaper that attracted almost millions of readers. After, you will see the beautifully designed Paramount edifice and figure out how well-known companies express their power through architecture. While following the tour, you will learn more about the most characteristic feature of Times Square - its billboards and advertising panels. Finally, you will be fascinated by the rhythm of Broadway Street with its dozens of theaters and discover the church, which was built specifically for Broadway artists. If you want to find yourself in the thick of things, get ready for the tour and see Times Square you never knew about!
