Times Building - 1908


The Times Building (now One Times Square), in Midtown Manhattan, was completed in 1904. Architects Cyrus L. W. Eidlitz and Andrew C. McKenzie turned for inspiration to Giotto's Campanile in Florence. Times Tower was second in height to the Park Row Building, but when considering the basement, it was the City's tallest structure from base to top.

The newspaper headquarters moved to this building in January 1905 and left it in 1913, when it moved into the Times Annex at 229 West 43rd Street. In the 1960s its façade was entirely reclad and then served as a kiosk for billboards and video screens. More: Times Square looking south
