Anything can be seen and heard in Times Square. This scribe remembers a guy in a gorilla suit skiing down the street of the famed area during a snow storm. However, the most unusual sight of all was.....60,000 people praying, which happened Sunday, September 20th. A fomal Christian rally called, "Prayer in the Square," which was organized by Times Square Church which is located in The Empire State Building, expected about 15,000 participants but instead drew 60,000, plus spectators.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who not only approved but helped the church cut through the red tape necessary to hold such an event, addressed the crowd, according to WorldNetDaily.com

"It's a little strange for me to by up here," he said. "I'm a Jew. But I just celebrated Rosh Hoshana, our new year. So I guess it's appropriate for me to wish you all a happy new year."
