What's Happening in NYC

PlayTimesSquared -- Thursday, July 14 - Saturday, July 16th

FREE mini-festival of physical and social games (infused with technology) called PlayTimesSquared taking place Thursday, July 14 - Saturday, July 16th on the Broadway Plazas (between 42nd and 43rd Streets and 43rd and 44th Streets.

In the NYU class Designing Play For Times Square, students explored the challenges of creating games for a multilingual, multicultural audience in a crowded public space, devising simple instructions while keeping the games intriguing and compelling. Taking into account the unique aspects of Times Square as well as the issue of games for a global audience, they’ve created eight playful, live-action games with different levels of difficulty and interactivity.

Now, these games are coming to the Broadway pedestrian plazas. With objectives as simple as trying to collect high-fives or as complex as navigating the NYC subway system, employees, residents and visitors can let off steam this summer by escaping into a ‘playground’ for three days.

All eight games will be available from 12pm – 4pm on July 14 and 15, and from 2pm – 6pm on July 16. All visitors to the plazas are invited to participate on a first come, first served basis.
