Times Square: Still Mirroring America, Even In The Age Of The 1%

In the old, edgy, sex-and-drug saturated '70s, 42nd Street and Broadway was the perfect reflection of our self-indulgent narcissism.  Well, narcissism in America has moved from sex and drugs to money, but guess what?  It turns out that Times Square is still the perfect mirror for all that.

I mean, when even Toys-R-Us can no longer afford to stay there, who can?  Can even Broadway afford to stay there?

Once upon a time, saving Times Square seemed impossible.  It's beginning to feel like saving America may be impossible.
