Travel Back to 1904 for the First New Year’s Eve in Times Square

In 1904, the New York Times moved from downtown near City Hall to the triangular piece of land at the intersection of 7th Avenue, Broadway, and 42nd Street. The Times Tower was the second-tallest building in the city at the time, but people thought they were crazy for moving so far uptown. However, this was the same year that the city’s first subway line opened, passing through what was then called Longacre Square. The Times had a printing press in the basement and would load the daily papers right onto the train, actually getting the news out faster than other papers.
