NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the most singular and extraordinary locations in New York is now a client of The Door, the powerhouse public relations firm that was recently acquired by Dolphin Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:DLPN).

The Door, a leading lifestyle and hospitality public relations, creative branding, and marketing services agency, announced today that it has been engaged as the agency of record for the Times Square Alliance, the non-profit partnership that works to improve and promote the iconic symbol of the city that never sleeps – cultivating the creativity, energy and edge that have made Times Square a unique symbol of entertainment, culture and urban life for over a century.

The Alliance's district covers mid-town Manhattan from 40th Street to 53rd Street between 6th and 8th Avenues, as well as Restaurant Row (46th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues), which is home to more than three dozen restaurants.

The Times Square Alliance is the latest addition to The Door's formidable client list, which ranges from television personalities such as Rachael Ray to hotel and restaurant groups such as Viceroy Hotels and Resorts and Starr Restaurants to consumer brands such as FAO Schwarz.

Acquired in July by Dolphin, a publicly-traded independent producer of premium feature films and digital content, and parent company of 42West, one of the largest public relations and marketing services firms in the entertainment industry, The Door was listed this past December by the New York Observer as the third most powerful PR firm of any kind in the United States.
