Times Square Remade:
The Dynamics of Urban Change

What is it about Times Square that has inspired such attention for well over a century? In her new book, Lynne Sagalyn examines the three main forces that have shaped and reshaped Times Square—theater, real estate, and pornography—and explains the politics and economics of what got built and what has been restored or preserved.
