New York Times Building

A skyscraper that holds the headquarters of one of the world’s most famous newspapers and is also an important piece of New York City’s architectural history.

The impressive New York Times Building is the home of a newspaper that is known all over the globe. It is also an important New York City landmark, an instantly recognizable point on the city’s skyline. Make sure you snap some photos of this iconic building during your visit to Times Square and leave yourself plenty of time to experience the many other attractions of this buzzing part of the city.

Stand right in front of the New York Times Building and look up at its towering 52-floor height. Marvel at the glass-heavy design; most of the building’s exterior is composed of windows. The building was designed by Renzo Piano, a world-renowned architect who was tasked with the job of conveying The New York Times’ philosophy through his design for the building. The large windows, which allow lots of light in and out of the building, symbolize the newspaper’s commitment to honesty and transparency. See the building at different times of the day and night and notice how the color of the light it gives off changes, moving through the whole rainbow.

Enter the lobby to enjoy some people-watching and absorb the bustle of this busy building. Pause to view the many small screens on the walls. These are part of the dynamic Moveable Type art installation, which features sentences and images drawn from the extensive archives of The New York Times itself.

Although the rest of the New York Times Building is not open to the public, there is lots to do in the immediate area, as this is one of the city’s most popular destinations for visitors. Come in the evening to be dazzled by the famous bright lights of Times Square and to take in a Broadway show. Visit in the daytime to drop into the Madame Tussauds wax museum before boarding a tour bus to whizz around the area’s many other iconic sights.
