Why You Better Know Your Red Square From Your Times Square if You want to be Financially Free!
There is a big difference between Moscow and New York AND surprising many similarities!
Consider Moscow’s Red Square and St Basil’s Cathedral to New York’s Times Square
Few places in the world bear the weight of history to the extent that Moscow’s Red Square does and today it remains the heart and soul of Russia. From the 16th Century St. Basil’s Cathedral – one of the most famous pieces of architecture in the world – to the constructivist pyramid of Lenin’s Mausoleum, Red Square is rich in symbols of Russia’s turbulent and intriguing past.
Although it’s known to everyone as St. Basil’s, this legendary Cathedral is officially called “The Cathedral of the Intercession of the Virgin by the Moat”. Completed in 1560, its construction was ordered by Ivan the Terrible to mark the 1552 capture of Kazan from Mongol forces. That’s pretty much all the genuine history that’s known about this celebrated landmark.
Colloquially known as “The Crossroads of the World” and “The Great White Way,” NYC’s Times Square is by comparison but a puppy having been a popular NY attraction for just over a century. Yet like Moscow’s Red Square it too represents the heart and soul of a nation as the curved seven-story NASDAQ sign report the fortunes and misfortunes of the US financial markets.
Formerly known as Longacre Square, Times Square acquired its name in 1904 when Albert Ochs, publisher of the New York Times, moved the newspaper’s operations to the newly built skyscraper “Times Building”. Today Times Square is home to modern day places of worship such the Broadway Theater district, the Naked Cowboy, ABC’s Times Square Studios, and Planet Hollywood and more than a third of a million people pass through iconic Times Square NYC every day!
