PHOTO FLASH: XXX Returns to Times Square, But It's Not What You Think
Back in the 1970s and 80s, Times Square was a dangerous area, with many of the great theatres of 42nd Street showing porno movies advertised with the fictitious rating XXX.
A different, more family-friendly kind of XXX will be coming to Times Square soon. "XXX Times Square With Love" is the name of an art installation that will be unveiled on Wednesday, August 24th at 11:00 am on the Broadway Pedestrian Plaza between 43rd and 44th Streets.
Presented by Times Square Arts and J. Mayer H., the attraction consists of three X-shaped outdoor loungers custom designed for Times Square, each of which can accommodate up to four people who can use them to take a break from midtown's hectic pace. #TSqXXX has been designated as the official social media hashtag to share selfies and other photos taken from "XXX TIMES SQUARE WITH LOVE."
