Times Square is surely the most familiar and most frequently reproduced fragment of urban real estate on the planet. The hats, the crowds, the shows, the bars -- yes, here was life in the center of the city that was the center of the world.Even those of us who are too young to have known Times Square in its age of glory -- even many people who have never been to New York, for that matter -- carry in their heads a nocturnal black-and-white image of glowing signs for Camel cigarettes and the Bond Clothing store, of humpbacked taxis coursing through the X-shaped crossroads of Broadway and Seventh Avenue, of crowds of men in dark suits and fedoras gazing up at the news zipper on the Times Tower. And as Times Square is in so many ways the incarnation of urban life itself, so nostalgia for Times Square is nostalgia for a lost idea of urbanness, or of urbanity -- for a time, before the advent of television and the suburbs, and before riots and drug wars, when everyone knew that city life was the best life of all.And surely there is no single place that demonstrates the renaissance of the old downtowns more impressively than Times Square itself, which passed through pornography and pathology to emerge, once again, as the capital of popular culture, with the nation's busiest Mc Donald's and the world's biggest Toys ''R'' Us and the corporate headquarters of Viacom and Reuters and Conde Nast.Today, as 50 years ago, the establishing shot of almost any coming-to-the-big-city movie is a pan along the wildly blinking canyon of Broadway. Knowing what Times Square was, can we accept the carnival of global marketing that it has become today?And all the commemorations will inevitably raise a single question: What are we to make of this Times Square in light of all the other Times Squares?In the tightly bounded space of an old city, history presents itself archaeologically, each generation building directly atop the one before.W niej samej też zachodzą zmiany – fizyczne, także psychiczne.
