Personally, I remember seeing the 60-foot tall Cup Noodles sign in Times Square. The steam rising from that noodle cup always fascinated me and that image has stayed with me. Granted, my lunchtime cup of ramen is much smaller than the sign. Still, it reminds me of my Times Square memories from years ago.
