Irwin Kruger’s loft-like McDonald’s restaurant in Times Square, built by Beyer Blinder Belle Architects of New York, has unique exposed brickwork and theatrical lighting, creating a “backstage ambience.” The McDonald’s sign over the front entrance is reminiscent of a theatre marquee, making it one of the most popular McDonald’s in the United States.
