Feeling Cooped Up?

I shot this on 42nd Streetin 1990, the day New York announced it would "revitalize" Times Square. The large background sign dates from the '50s, "Video Peeps" and "Calculators Typewriters" is of the '80s variety.

This is great. Nicely composed too. I love those old signs, that one must have been one of the last in town. And I don't think I've seen an ad for a typewriter in 20 years.

Great sign. I hope this is a teaser for what this view looks like today. I wouldn't put it past you.

A shame, such an architecturally pleasing building. All to make way for a Chucky Cheese??!!
