Vintage Photograph of the New York Times Tower Building Under Construction in 1904

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. But ever since the massive billboards went up, the building has remained about 90% empty.

Our friends at Stuff Nobody Cares About recently dug up this great vintage photograph of the tower under construction in 1904. Check out the accompanying article for more history on One Times Square.
