Among the touristy things I did while in New York City with my girlfriend and her parents is visit Times Square. It’s possible that I visited as a kid, but that was a long time ago and I have no memory of it, so this was essentially my first time. It was honestly a pretty jaw-dropping moment when you get...

Time Square is a great place FULL of life and the place literally never sleeps!! lots of street entertainers, movie heros offering a photo with you (be careful they expect a tip!). Be prepared for an extremely busy place - at peak (which seems always) there are hundreds of people. Lots to see do, eat and drink in TS

there isn't a more vibrant, glitzy and happening place than Times Square at NYC. There are few things that you can't do within a few metres of Manhattan's center- see a play, watch a movie, have a meal with a cuisine of your choice, and everything in between.

There is only one Times Square! The lights, the LED ads, the energy, the ambiance, the plays! This place hums with fun energy! It glows! Put it on the list and be sure to go see a play! Heck, any play! Do not come to NYC and miss it!

An absolutely spectacular way to end my trip to New York by being in Times Square on New Year's Eve. A memory to cherish with over 1 million people!!!

The lights and shopping here is breathtaking and overwhelming. We walked around the city almost all day, and had a great time. The crowd is fun to walk and street performances. This is a fun experience for NYC.

Look, is snowing; actually a blizzard, freezing cold and the authorities are stopping all traffic, the underground has just been suspended and there is a very strange atmosphere around. Yet somehow the magic of Times Square just goes on regardless. I'm not seeing it at its best I'm sure, but even in theses awful conditions stop and look around. There... More

Don't bother. Tawdry, loud, full of disney characters and other dubious individuals wanting to take your money for a photo - hold onto your handbag and get through to the other side asap!
