Former President Bill Clinton fondly remembers a "romantic" time when you could still get a prostitute in Times Square.
Clinton was at a news conference in Times Square with Mayor Bloomberg on Wednesday when a reporter asked him about the formerly seedy neighborhood.
Clinton said he first visited Times Square in 1964 when he was a freshman at Georgetown University. He said he saw "a hooker approach a man in a gray flannel suit." He said it was "pretty heavy stuff for a guy from Arkansas."
Clinton said the area is cleaner and safer now — and that's good.
