Overview

This 33 storey colossal clock-tower in the middle of Times Square is one of New York City's most popular attractions. Built in the year 1926, the pyramid-shaped monument was home to the 3,600 seat Paramount Theater. Gary Cooper, Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby all graced the stage here at some point in time; that is Paramount's historic trivia for you. By the year 1964, the doors closed to make way for the corporate clan. A lot of offices have sprung up within Paramount's premises in recent years and it now houses the WWF entertainment complex along with a restaurant, retail store and nightclub.
