Description
Bright lights, big city: The neon-strewn heart of The Big Apple is where you'll find Broadway theaters that house multimillion-dollar productions, chain restaurants that are spectacles in and of ... Read more
themselves, and enough electronic billboards to overload even the most entertainment-jaded eyes. Sometimes called the 'Crossroads of the World,' Times Square hosts the United States' most famous New Year's Eve party -- arrive early to stake out your spot. In the last few years, the area has become decidedly more pedestrian friendly with mini-parks in place of what used to be parking and roadways. Come, sit a spell, and watch the beautiful madness that is New York City play out in front of you. It's the best show on Broadway.

People walk really fast around here! Driving around is harder than taking a subway and walking so just park your car and walk/sub for the entire trip! It is so fun to see the high rises and billboards as you walk around! Make sure you brought closed-toed walking shoes!

There is something here for everyone! So much to do. And if you’ve explored all the shops, even just people watching is so interesting in Time’s Square! Beware of the people in costumes, they will take pictures for you and then demand payment!

I love sitting in Times Square and taking in the excitement of New York. There’s something for everyone and every type of person is here. Sit and people watch, take in a show on Broadway, go late at night and realize the city really never sleeps. It’s a one of a kind experience, and different every time.

Go at night! It is quite a spectacle. Take the L train to Union Sq then transfer to the UPTOWN N or R train to 42st. Use the TKTS booth at 47th St for half priced day-of-the -show tickets for Broadway and Off-Broadway.

I love shopping near Times Square! Definitely worth a trip. My understanding is locals are not that enthused by it but for tourists it really is a must see and must do. Plus, parts of New York don’t charge taxes on clothes purchased under a certain amount ☺️

Times Square is one of those magical places you hear about, go, and kind of are on to the next thing. I think that it’s super touristy but it still has this magic about it. Bright lights, big city kind of vibe!

Times Square was everything and nothing like I expected at the same time. It was dirty, over flowing with ppl, and had the same stores on every corner, BUT the lights made it cool. It was gritty and there nothing luxurious about the place

The "Center of the Universe" - Time Square is something everyone should experience at least once....in all honesty there is so much more to NYC than just Time Square. Go explore off the beaten path and what isn't in the tour books!
