We walked through Times Square for a while after the play. It was such a beautiful summer night and even though the scene is a bit intense with all the lights, noise and tourists, you can't help but be taken in by the energy and spirit of Times Square - another part of New York that has been through a sea of change since the period of time in which Rent took place.
Here are some photos of Times Square.

I love this song...in fact, I love the entire album and her work in general. I'm not lost on the irony of the song, melancholy in her voice and the nostalgia that it invokes coupled with these images of a thoroughly modern and new millennium Times Square.
