Counting Foot Traffic in Times Square
Times Square Alliance commissions two counts of pedestrians in Times Square every year. This video shows how they do it, and talks with the people doing to counting.
"The December 2009 count recorded some 364,000 pedestrians in a 24-hour period, a 15% increase on the previous year. Although results from the most recent count are still being collated, this summer's raw data indicates a further year-on-year rise."
