Tim Tompkins, President of the Times Square Alliance, said, “This summer we’re helping New Yorkers take back Times Square using the incredible platform of the Broadway Plazas to showcase the best of NYC culture to those who live and work in the district.  Make Music New York is an exemplary partner for this because they are plugged into the diverse community of musicians that New York City has to offer.”
