Great White Way Darkens Lights under Army Air-raid Regulations

 (Times Square looking north, April 29, 1942)

The familiar Broadway lights are dimmed for the reminder of World War II as Mid-town Manhattan complies with new Army lighting restrictions designed to curtail enemy attacks on shipping.  The “dimout” was a prelude to a total blackout scheduled the next evening which affected almost all of Manhattan from river to river bounded by Eleventh Street on the south and 123d Street on the north.
