Times Square

Here's another postcard sent by my good friends Margaux and Filmore during their USA trip.

 "Formerly named Longacre Square, Times Square was renamed in April 1904 after The New York Times moved its headquarters to the newly erected Times Building, which is now called One Times Square and is the site of the annual ball drop on New Year's Eve. Times Square, nicknamed "The Crossroads of the World" and "The Great White Way," has achieved the status of an iconic world landmark and is a symbol of New York City and the United States."

I like how the photo brings me right smack in the middle of New York City's Times Square.  It shows a glimpse of the hustle and bustle of the iconic district of the city that never sleeps.

This colorful stamp featuring the Grand Teton National Park was pasted on the back of the card:

Thanks, M & F!  You are right, I should come to NY someday! 

Wishing you happy journeys...
