Times Square Photography Project
The Times Square Photography Project began in 1994 as an activity program for the residents of The Times Square, a supportive permanent tenancy building for single adults, located on West 43rd Street in New York City. The participating photographers represent a mix of ages, races, cultures, and backgrounds. Some of them have been homeless, others live on fixed or low incomes, but all have experienced the difficulty of finding affordable housing.
