Actually, Ken… the Times Square occupies just about all of this building. Stage house is on the right (you can see the fly tower rising above) and the house ran back to the left. The wooden doors on the left at street level indicate the original entrance foyer for the old Apollo Theatre, essentially a tunnel through the building to the Apollo’s lobby and auditorium, which sat behind the Times Square on 43rd Street. The upper portion of the Times Square’s balcony extends over this foyer. Fire exits for the balcony run behind the colonnade, with exit doors onto 42nd Street just to the left of the red awning for “42nd St Development Project” that we see in this photo.
