Times Square in neon blue

You can’t miss the color blue in Times Square..it’s everywhere..in neon lights, humongous LEDs, plasma and video screens.

Did you know that the Square’s many neon signs are no accident? The city imposes zoning ordinances requiring building owners to display illuminated signs. So much revenue is created by neon advertisements that some of the buildings in and around Time Square are actually empty. Their commercial value is equated not by tenants, but by advertising revenue!

Here’s the time square that I remember, drenched in neon blue:

On Times Square, even the police station has a flashy neon sign on the roof
