Times Square remains an icon of Manhattan and is one
of the more recognizable destinations on the City. The intersection
of 7th and Broadway creates an “X” shaped area surrounded
by glitz and glitter as only Manhattan can provide.
Multi-story advertisements, physical and AR, surround you
with everything from the latest trends, to the latest news, to
the latest stock report out of the ECSE.
The Square is also the place to go if you’ve got some nuyen
itching to be spent. It’s a high class area filled with ritzy restaurants
and old-time theaters. Many of the buildings sport an art
deco AR theme allowing visitors to experience Manhattan in
its hey-day, or at least that’s what the tourist brochures say. The
City’s older theaters, many operational even back in the 20th
century, can be found on the side streets around the square.
While updated to provide AR feeds end emotive tracks carefully
calibrated to provide an audience with the appropriate queues
during a performance, a few—most notably the Shubert Theater
on 44th between 7th and 8th—have avoided too much modernization
and provide “a true theater connoisseur’s experience.”
