Number One Times Square is the most viewed building in Times Square, both in person and on TV, and although the building is completely vacant, makes more money than any other building in
The building was built between 1903 and 1905 as a home for the New York Times, and it remained so until 1961. Since then, although the building was brought up to city construction code in 1996, it remains tenantless. However, it rakes in millions of dollars per day from the advertising clinging to its outer walls! In 2000, it was estimated that the building's 26 signs bring in monthly rent checks ranging from $100,000,000 to $250,000,000.
That’s right, on my recent visit, I was given free advertising space just because I’m MUSHY!
