I believe it has to bear signage by local ordinance -- if it's in the Time's Square district (which it is). That includes 42nd Street to my knowledge.

That's my most favorite ordinance in the world, btw.

I miss the real Times Square , from the 70s.

Times Square of "Taxi Driver" and "Midnight Cowboy".

^ Time square didn't get crazy till the 80's. Not to many people were getting mug there during the 70's. It's not the safest place in the city by any means. Anybody can get mug or shot anywhere I mean it is NYC. But truthfully those are just sterotypes, it can be dangerous in any big city.

Without the spire

If you count the spire, it's 1 118 ft / 340,8 m tall

It's not a spire it's antenna and it's 809 feet at its roof top. Now lets try to stay on topic please.
