Text description provided by the architects. Originally inspired by the “X”-like intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue that forms Times Square, the loungers are the first specially-commissioned ongoing street furniture for the new Times Square plazas.

Each “X” of “XXX TIMES SQUARE WITH LOVE” can accommodate up to four people, with each leg of the “X” serving as an almost-horizontal lounger that allows people to lie down and enjoy a totally different – and more leisurely — perspective than the bustling plazas of Times Square. They can chill with a book from the new Strand book kiosk or, using the hashtag #TSqXXX, they can share their love on social media, tag friends, and send them “XXX TIMESSQUARE WITH LOVE!”
