Time Square – At the World’s Intersection
If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere – and so the song goes as one thinks of New York City. Time Square – the world’s most visited tourist attraction – is perhaps the world’s cultural intersection too! It is the heartbeat of Manhattan, as you can explore the many cultural sights and sounds that the city is home to. English is not necessarily the lingua franca there – with so many tourists in the region of Time Square, you get to hear people from Middle East, Europe, Asia, Oceania and more. It is perhaps the place to be to understand how globalisation has played out in today’s context – and how we can celebrate the best in diversity!
