Times Square Like a Local: Photos

  1. Times Square, with its neon signage and pedestrian-only zone, as seen from 45th Street and Seventh Avenue. (Michael Mohr)
  2. The light-as-air sandwich cookies at 2-year-old Macaron Café come in a crayon-box assortment of colors and flavors, from dark chocolate to pistachio. (Michael Mohr)
  3. The folks behind indie upstart Culture Espresso put plenty of thought into the décor, from the chandeliers and floral wallpaper to the large communal table that anchors the seating area. (Michael Mohr)
  4. An authentic oasis among the faux-Irish pubs one block west, Jimmy's Corner is a veritable shrine to the history of boxing. The walls are plastered with framed photos of the greats. (Michael Mohr)
  5. Think of it as the urban cousin of a Route 66 diner. At Schnipper's Quality Kitchen, the menu is heavy on all-American favorites like burgers, fries, and milkshakes. (Michael Mohr)
  6. The Drama Book Shop is the best kind of New York institution. It started as a simple card table selling play scripts in a theater lobby in 1917 and moved to its current spot in 2001, keeping its no-fuss presentation and single-minded focus on the performing arts. (Michael Mohr)
  7. Project Runway contestants and sewing novices alike shop at Mood Fabrics—and play with Swatch, the owner's Boston terrier and the store's in-house model. (Michael Mohr)
