I say bring on more video screens for times square.. They're awesome and way more awe-inspiring than neon signs.

Times square is just an overly crass and overwhelming version of the classy neon-lit shopping avenues of Asia. NY'ers would appreciate it more if more avenues where NY'ers shop and work were lit up properly and were not associated with just tourists in a limited area. The fact that it's just on Times Square ruins the whole concept and NY'ers associate lights/signs/neon with that over-the-top overcrowded tourist hub.

NY needs more of these areas, more avenues with lights. This kind of night environment should be appreciated by more NY'ers. They are part of the cities in Asia, they can be here too. There is no reason why major shopping avenues should not have well thought out neon signs. Check out Ginza's main drag, it's very classy and well done, not like Times Square at all.
Say what now?? New York needs to look more like Asian cities? OK, now I know you're just stirring the pot. If you got a problem with New York's night scene, you just don't like New York.

Times Square is amazing! It's one of the reasons Lenny has chosen NYC for his new song!

You didn't get my post and came up with a odd conclusion and a weird judgement about my actions - stirring the pot? Oh really now? How is offering my opinion/suggestion/critique 'sirring the pot'? Oh, I know, because you DON"T LIKE MY OPINION (defensive much?), so it automatically becomes 'trolling' in your eyes - am I right or am I right?

Also, you seem to have included a logical fallacy in there about me not liking the city of NY (which is the most ridiculous and off base assumption ever posted on SSC most likely) because I prefer Asian urban lighting schemes. Night Scene /= Lighting. You must have actually jumped across the Pacific ocean with that conclusion. Well done

No. That's been since that tower opened around 15 years ago.

I agree, but I think that the three nearby projects will be even better, and of them all, the Qatar's project will be the best.

I agree, but I am really looking forward to what Extell has up their sleeves at 740 8th Avenue.

I agree, Lion. I didn't include it in that group since it's a few blocks away.

New York City is going absolutely bananas!

In the Times Square area alone, we have:

148 West 48th Street
721 7th Avenue
1656 Broadway (Qatar)
Marriott Edition

and a few blocks away, we have Extell's 740 8th Avenue.
