Ok, before I became temporarily 1 armed , I was developing an early morning Times Square tour because I think early morning is the only time to really see Times Square - the heart of visitor NYC. The subways and buses are arteries and veins and Central Park is the (primary) lungs of Manhattan.
For most of last month I was not going out of my way to travel to midtown for any reason. The cast isn't off yet but I am much more mobile so I thought I would be much more likely to show up in Times Square at 7AM if there were people waiting to find me so....
Locals, visitors, even fellow tour guides if you notify me in advance, meet me by the stadium seats in Times Square for a free explore (fam) tour, travel board meet up, informal focus group experience. For any of you heading to work, breakfast or more early morning touring, I intend to end this by 8:30 although since it is free, you can leave whenever you wish.
The Times Square Visitor Center and Museum will be open when we end.
Afterwards, who knows. I will probably head for breakfast. I have to be in Brooklyn by 1 but there will be plenty of time for more exploring.
RSVP by comment or email or PM. As long as 1 person tells me they are showing up, I will be there.
NOTE: the postcards are views that you will not see in today's Times Square at 7AM.
Also, The Devil's Playground by James Traub is only one of many great books about the history of Times Square - the crossroads of the world.
