The Mitsubishi Electric screen occupies the entire block of Broadway that lies between 45th and 46th street, and even wraps about another 30 feet around each corner. Its true resolution is 2,368 x 10,048, and it measures over 77 feet tall by 323 feet long. It will reportedly be under Google's control until the end of January 2015.
If you're on the block it occupies, the billboard easily towers over you. When you're up extremely close to it you're even likely to feel a quick hit of vertigo. It's the kind of thing that almost singularly stands out from the visual din — until it disappears as you walk a few blocks away past the unlicensed Elmos and find a bigger crowd staring at a Revlon billboard one-fifth the size.
