One of the best known places on the planet, times square is a wonder of its own. The lights on the billboards flash around showing many Broadway shows as well as upcoming movies, news flashes all around. With many shops around it is a place to spend hours in. And of course it is fun to see where the ball... More

We took the kids to NYC and of course we visited Times Square. Everyone should visit at some point and our kids love it. The lights, the brightness of the screens, it's a magical space with people from all over the globe.

Right outside our hotel,very crowded, but never-ending fun. If you like good food, bright lights, great broadway plays, this is the place to be day,or night.

I visited Times Square at Easter as part if a sight seeing visit. I found it loud, tacky and really not for me. I don't really see the hype which surrounds it. We were booking tickets for a show, so we had to go to TS to book. Much preferred would be Battery Park, Wall Street, Rockefeller Centre or some... More

Don't be surprised when it's not a Square! First time we went there, we missed it, looking for something more like London's squares. Need to visit by day to get orientated and soak up the hustle & bustle and at night. The lights on the buildings are amazing and there's always stuff going on, albeit every restaurant in the area...

On the positive side, there are some good shops and places to eat around Times Square, and many people like to set foot in a Hard Rock Cafe in whichever country they are in. I did fancy going to BB King's but when I saw it featured a 'Beatles Brunch' for $49 and a Bee Gees tribute act in the... More

It an assault on the senses,everything is larger than life. So many sights and so many people 24 hours a day, just to sit and watch this vista is a delight. This is one not to be missed

We totally enjoyed the many walks we took in Times Square during the Holidays. Watching the "jumbotrons"...and they ARE jumbo! was fun and colorful. The crowds were manageable, the storekeepers pleasant and accommodating, and we always felt safe...day or night. There were also "walk-in" casual places to eat at very reasonable prices. We will return! The length of visit question... More

If you have seen Times Square on TV, you have a small idea of what it is like. However, that is nothing like being there in person, especially during the Christmas season.

Some may find it way too crowded..but man..you're in the heart of the city. So much happening all around with skyscrapers surrounding you with huge LED displayes. Lot to witness, much more to shop around and Loads of fun things happening. Just be there and have fun. Best time to visit is during evening time till late.
