My first trip to the Big Apple, we were very hesitant and apprehensive. Coming from a small town to the Big city was definitely a little scary. However, it was wonderful to be standsing in this monumental place. Times square is such a world known location, it is a must see. We didn't feel unsafe at any time, and we... More

After dinner we decided to head down to Time Square for our first time and were we lucky to find a parking spot in Time Square (WOW). Now being able to see everything that they have to offer, from the lights, shops to restaurants was a definite experience like no other. Just a fun time, but remember... thousands of people... More

Wahnsinnig tolles Gefühl, wenn man aus der U Bahn rauskommt und es überall blinken und glitzern sieht. Auf jeden Fall sehenswert, auch wenn es natürlich immer voll dort ist. What an amazing feeling when I got out of the subway and saw the lights everywhere. I liked it a lot and i was surprised how nice it is even if... More

Times Square is one of those places that you must go to if you're in NYC just to say that you went, but in reality it's very busy and crowded. In my opinion, it's a bit overrated.

An absolute must. We didn't spend much time there but you can't visit NYC without going to Times Square.

The crowds here make Disney World look like a corn maze in rural Kansas. No matter what time of day or night you're there, there will be a crowd. Give yourself plenty of time to get around and bring lots of patience when visiting any of the stores. Beware the aggressive tour salespersons all over trying to sell you tours.... More

Let's be honest if you visit Manhattan and don't visit Times Square you will think you have missed something. So go! It's brash noisy busy especially at night. Read the billboards watch the Neon displays and do your best to avoid Batman, Robin and Superman. Don't be disappointed to find the naked cowboy and cowgirl are scantily clad but not... More

Kept visiting this place as it never slept. Excellent photo opportunities and felt very safe. Shops were open late around this area.

Times Square is great when you first come upon it and see it, but after that you realize it's a dirty tourist trap. Lots of people on the streets wanting to sell you things, hand you stuff, beg for money and trash on the ground. It's loaded with chain restaurants and who wants that when you get that in your...
