In any case, washington, BA and many other cities copied the egiptians.
São Paulo has also its own obelisk, in this case for celebrating the heros of the Revolution of 1932, and it's worthy of a postcard:

Times Square has a lot of lights and tourists. That's all folks. It's interesting to visit, but you only have to go there once.

Only Mainland Asia rule is evading real universals. Journeys into other Continents, they are around. Hypnotically alluring example is even arising Gran Via Madrid Spain. Regal imperial megalopolis giant square plaza endlessly filling with crowds, and identical enough to what I am well aware of with my own home town. Arranging displays of ultra urbanite luxury. Classy visuals city of immaculate spires opposing Spanish speak basic colonial wild.

Lima - Parque Kenedy. Not really as full of advertisements, but serves a similar purpose. Even has a similar shape to Times Square haha. A bit shabby on GSV https://goo.gl/maps/DbvhRiBZ9so but in person it looks much nicer

Buenos Aires - The Obelisk and the surrounding area

I would say more grungy than beautiful. Unlike Piccadilly or Times Square, La Septima in & around Santa Fe is not bordered by the well-to-do areas of Mayfair and Midtown respectively. It used to be THE area back in the 40's but nowadays its far grittier but very much happening. Given time it should revert back to its former glory.
