Last week, YIMBY reported that testing had begun on 701 Seventh Avenue’s enormous new billboard. Now, it has been activated in full, as photographed yesterday by mchlanglo793. The 18,000 square-foot LED screen is the largest in Times Square, and will soon be joined by a 17,000 square-foot screen immediately across the street, at 1568 Broadway, site of the former Doubletree Hotel. As for 701 Seventh Avenue, aka the Marriott Edition Times Square, the exterior is almost fully glassed, and opening is a few months out.
