This block was revitalized with the unveiling of the TKTS area in 2008. There is a huge red staircase leading to nowhere and there is a statue of World War 1 hero Father Duffy that stands beneath the steps. Located on 45th street on Broadway.

Duffy square is fun to visit. There is a great view for most of Times Square from here. This is worth stopping at while in Times Square.

Times Square and Duffy Square are places where a lot of people take pictures of flashy advertisements... They really have to explain me what so special is about this place. There is nothing, really nothing to see what could be interesting...
