English: Looking downtown in Longacre (now Times) Square.

At right is Oscar Hammerstein's Victoria Theatre, under construction on the northwest corner of 42nd Street and 7th Avenue; it opened on March 2, 1899.
At left is Broadway. The triangular block between the two avenues is now occupied by One Times Square, which opened January 1, 1905 as the New York Times Building. In the picture, the north (nearer) portion is occupied by a group of five four-story buildings belonging to the estate of Amos R. Eno; they were demolished in 1901 for construction of the subway.
To their left, a construction fence is visible at street level, where the south portion of the block is empty; construction of the Pabst Hotel began there in October 1898, and the hotel opened in November 1899.
