One must experience it first hand to know what it really feels & looks. The place is so crowded & noisy in the night, The screens all around were amazing & so colorful. It was nice to see in real life what we had seen on movies. The place is full of shops & cafes, but its more to look... More

Hard to find right words: overcrowded, noisy, spectacular, advertisement full, but safe, amazing place. Hard to find similar on Earth.

Always a great time visiting Time Square - be ready for crowds and traffic on any given day! Grab a coffee and just watch the action :)

Arrived in the Square on a Saturday afternoon. We were truly in awe of the amount of people in the areas of Times Square. The media screens were all around and at night provided tremendous light and color! There are many street folks in costume and some with barely nothing on at all. They are there to hustle a buck...

There's no place like it in the world. Great for shopping, touring around, taking pictures and just good ole people watching. Sephora, Toys R Us, and lots of other great stores for the whole family. Day or night, Times Square is a must visit destination for any NYC tourist.

My family and I walked through Times Square on a summer night last month [July 2014] and it really was thrilling to see all of the lights and people. Have to admit it was harrowing getting through the throngs while keeping track of our two teenagers. I don't think I would bring little kids through here at night unless I... More

Busy, fast-paced and loud, I would recommend Times Square as your first stop in NY cos its smacks you in the face with the knowledge that you are finally in NY. After that initial visit, don't go back as when you get increasingly comfortable in NY, you get increasingly annoyed at the other tourists there.

You do have to visit here, I enjoyed it a lot. It is one of the famous attractions in New York so it is a must. It is obvious that this area is just for tourists and as a result we did not hang around for a long time. A lot of human traffic at night but this is to... More
