What is it about Times Square that has inspired such attention for well over a century? In her new book, Times Square Remade: The Dynamics of Urban Change, 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. Twenty years after her widely acclaimed Times Square Roulette, Sagalyn returns to New York’s most popular and symbolic urban space, analyzing how the public-private transformation of 42nd St. has impacted the entertainment district and adjacent neighborhoods.
