Midtown Manhattan which always been ground zero for, uh, free speech (or whatever constitutes free speech) in the city, is about to get more hectic than usual on election night this week. From the ABCNews via Observer:

"Charles Gibson, Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos will anchor live coverage of election results across from the country on Tuesday, November 4th. ABC's 'Vote 2008' will originate from the Crossroads of the World, Times Square beginning with a special edition of 'World News with Charles Gibson' at 6:30pm ET and continuing with full election coverage from 7:00pm ET until at least 2:00am ET. A special edition of Nightline will air at 2:35am ET.

"On election night, ABC News will transform Times Square into an outdoor global viewing event, with thousands of people watching ABC News coverage of real time election results on three iconic screens - ABC's Super Sign, the enormous digital fa├žade of NASDAQ and the 23-story high Reuters sign."
