Photo-a-day 170: Times Square… not quite New York’s!

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 6 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Last Sunday, I showed you the DNA sculpture which stands in Newcastle’s Times Square. Today’s picture shows another angle on Times Square – note the huge Life logo in the brickwork of the floor, and the couple of bars that are visible beneath the biomedical offices on the right of the photo. The DNA sculpture can’t be seen as it’s off to the right of this picture. The church in the background is St Mary’s, which I featured in February.

The feature of Times Square which is perhaps most useful to know is that it has its own nearby multi-storey car park, which is one of the few in Newcastle that’s open (and manned) 24hrs. That’s the sort of knowledge that sometimes comes in very handy!
