Times Square vs Ginza
My studio is very close to Times Square. I chose it mainly because I wanted something relatively close to my apartment. I didnt really factor in numerous tourists that crowd the streets but luckily I am on the outskirts so they can be avoided. The other day I was walking by the central area of Times Square and it reminded me of Ginza in Tokyo. Ginza is more like 5th Avenue but the neon and light projections have a similar feel.
Ginza has cooler animations though.
But sometimes Times Square can be classy. This was a video by Marilyn Minter which was shown in Times Square over the summer.
