We often watch old films that were shot in New York and play a game where we "guess that location". It's a challenge as this is a town that is constantly evolving. Buildings go up, store fronts come and go but usually you can pick up something in the architecture that's a tip off. My husband usually wins. There is one location however that few people in the world wouldn't recognize, Times Square.
$48- for a set of four at New York First
Imagine how happy I was when I found these coasters. Each one depicts an image of Times Square, as it appeared in each of four decades, 1920, 30, 40 and 50 and are embedded into tumbled Botticino marble.
I'm picking up a few sets. I have a few parties coming up this summer and I think they'd make the perfect host/hostess gifts. While 2 of the hosts are ex-NYers the others just love the city like we do.
