I wonder what a completely empty Times Square would look and feel like. Probably like something out of a horror movie.

closest thing I ever experienced to that in my life was during Hurricane Sandy, it was certainly very eerie.

View at night. Its going to get a lot brighter with the upcoming screens. Any sort of construction or on days where roads are closed or lanes shut down, will cause traffic hell.

Is this getting a new façade? Some articles discuss "demolition," but I find it hard to believe that this will be razed.

It will be razed, or at least stripped down to steel. The new tower is taller and has larger floorplates.

It's a new build, essentially. They're stripping the tower down to the steel.
Like 425 Park or L&M's Madison Ave project, right?
