Longacre Square is renamed 'Times Square'
Although it was named after the New York Times, the newspaper would not move into the new headquarters between Broadway and Seventh at 42nd Street until January 1905 and would then move to larger offices 8 years later in 1913. The former center of the city's horse carriage industry is now the most visited place in the world, seeing over 131 million pedestrians yearly.
