NEW YORK - APRIL 2: Interior view of the Howard Johnson's restaurant in Times Square, April 2, 2004 in New York City.  The Howard Johnson's might be the only establishment in Times Square that beckons to a bygone era; there's still a traditional ice cream counter, and the staff wears bowties. Times Square's 100th birthday is April 8, 2004. On April 8, 1904, Mayor George McClellan signed a resolution changing the name of Long Acre Square to Times Square. Times Square, a living icon of popular culture, is one of the most familiar and most frequently reproduced fragments of urban real estate on the planet. (Photo by Landon Nordeman, 2004)
