In addition to some of Times Square's iconic signs, the coloring page above shows a street sign for George Abbott Way — the portion of 45th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. Named after Broadway producer, director, and playwright George Abbot, that single block houses the Booth, Gerald Schoenfeld, Music Box, Bernard B. Jacobs, Imperial, John Golden, and Minskoff Theatres, as well as many other businesses.
The coloring page above shows the Broadway pedestrian plazas in Times Square. After the City permanently pedestrianized Broadway between 42nd and 47th Streets, those blocks were redesigned and reconstructed from 2012–2016. In the picture, you can see the illuminated Broadway sign brought to the plazas by Broadway Up Close.
The coloring page above is based on a pre-lockdown photo of the Times Square plazas and the XXX TIMES SQUARE WITH LOVE loungers by J.Mayer.H. The bright pink loungers were inspired by the "X"-like intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue at the heart of Times Square.
Drawn from a photo of post-lockdown Times Square, the coloring page above shows the kiosks of the Times Square Market (TSQ MKT), Times Square's iconic Red Steps, and the TKTS discount ticket booth. First opened in 1973, the TKTS booth is run by the Theater Development Fund (TDF) and sells same-day Broadway and Off-Broadway tickets at 20–50% off. The Red Steps were first conceptualized during an open call to redesign the TKTS booth at the beginning of the 21st century; the full structure was unveiled in 2008.
TDF, which is primarily supported by revenue from their ticket services, has launched the TDF Lifeline fundraising campaign to help sustain critical operations during the shutdown and into the recovery period. TDF funds programs that bring veterans and others to see Broadway shows for free, arrange special performances for children with autism, introduce high school students to the magic of live theater, and more.
