The New York Times – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In reading the history of the New York Times, I didn’t expect to see this:

The newspaper gave its name to Times Square in 1904 after it moved to new headquarters on 42nd Street in an area formerly known as Longacre Square. It was here that the New Year’s Eve tradition of lowering a lighted ball from the Times building was started by the paper in 1907.

A New York institution started two other New York institutions!
