One Times Square, the famous building on the south end of Manhattan's Times Square built, was once the home of The New York Times. It was completed in 1904 and the Times stayed there for just 10 years before moving out. Over the next century, the building would become a home to a speakeasy, a shooting range, and offices. Now, it remains mostly empty with all windows being obstructed by billboards. Despite the empty interior, it is one of the most famous buildings in the world, housing the New Years Eve Ball.
