Streetscape of Manhattan Broadway from Herald Square 
先锋广场和曼哈顿百老汇街景

Herald Square is formed by the intersection of Broadway, Sixth Avenue (officially named Avenue of the Americas) and 34th Street in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. Named for the New York Herald, a now-defunct newspaper formerly headquartered there, it also gives its name to the surrounding area. The intersection is a typical Manhattan bow-tie square that consists of two named sections: Herald Square to the north (uptown) and Greeley Square to the south (downtown). 
先锋广场位于百老汇街,第六大道(官方名称为美洲大道)和曼哈顿区的分界线的34街的交汇口。广场以纽约先驱报命名,这个已经消失的报纸的总部曾矗立于此。这个交叉口是曼哈顿典型的两个三角形形成的蝴蝶结形态的广场:先锋广场北面是上城(居住区)而格里利广场以南则是市中心区。


Streetscape of Manhattan Broadway – Woolworth Tower
曼哈顿百老汇街景-伍尔沃斯大厦

The Woolworth Building is one of the oldest skyscrapers in the United States, and was constructed in neo-Gothic style by architect Cass Gilbert, who was commissioned by Frank Woolworth in 1910 to design the tallest building in the world as the Woolworth Company's new corporate headquarters on Broadway, between Park Place and Barclay Street in Lower Manhattan, opposite City Hall. It remains, at 57 stories, one of the fifty tallest buildings in the United States as well as one of the twenty tallest buildings in New York City. It has been a National Historic Landmark since 1966, and a New York City landmark since 1983.
沃尔沃斯大厦是美国最早的摩天楼之一,1910年由弗兰克.沃尔沃斯委托建筑师卡斯.吉尔伯特设计的这座新歌特风格的大厦作为沃尔沃斯公司在百老汇大街上的新的总部,该建筑位于曼哈顿下城的公园广场和巴克莱街之间,市政厅的对面。57层的大厦是全美排名第五十的高层和纽约排名第二十的高层。该建筑于1966年被列为国家历史遗产,而于1983年成为纽约城市遗产。


Colombia University- Low Memorial Library and Low Plaza
哥伦比亚大学-卢纪念图书馆和卢广场

Low Plaza has been described as one of the great urban spaces in America. It was built to resemble a Greek amphitheater and is ideal for outdoor events, including concerts, theatrical performances and fairs. Students flock to the plaza steps to sunbathe, socialize and study, making it, in the words of a leading architect, a true "urban beach." Watching over the plaza is Alma Mater, a bronze sculpture by Daniel Chester French, famous for his statue of Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
卢广场被描述为美国最杰出的都市空间之一。这个空间模仿希腊室外圆形露天剧场的布局,而且是举行室外活动的理想场所,比如音乐会、室外戏剧表演和一些展览等。学生们则聚集在广场的大台阶上晒太阳,聊天和学习,使之成为真正意义上的“都市海滩”。俯瞰广场的阿尔玛.玛塔的青铜雕塑是由丹尼尔.切斯特.弗兰彻所创作,他也是著名的华盛顿特区林肯纪念堂的亚伯拉罕.林肯雕像的作者。

Times Square is a major commercial intersection in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Times Square – iconified as "The Crossroads of the World" and the "The Great White Way"– is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theater district, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry. 
时代广场是纽约市曼哈顿中城主要的商业汇聚点,位于第7大道和百老汇街交汇的三角地带,南北方向则从42街延伸到47街。时代广场是美国的文化中心的象征,被称为“世界的十字路口”和“白色大道”- 因为这里是灯火通明的剧院聚集的百老汇区。这里既是世界最繁忙的行人交叉点,也是世界主要的娱乐产业中心。

位于时代广场南部中央的时代广场一号(前纽约时报大楼1904)

Formerly Longacre Square, Times Square was renamed in April 1904 after The New York Times moved its headquarters to the newly erected Times Building – now called One Times Square – site of the annual Times Square Ball drop on its roof on New Year's Eve. The northern triangle of Times Square is technically Duffy Square, dedicated in 1937 to Chaplain Francis P. Duffy
广场前身是朗埃克广场,之所以称其为“时代广场”是因为1904年纽约时报的总部搬迁到新落成的时代大厦 – 现在称之为时代广场一号 – 是每年著名的午夜水晶球倒数计时仪式的场所。时代广场北边的三角形实际上是达菲广场,是为纪念弗朗斯西.P.达菲牧师于1937年命名的。
