I had no idea Times Square would be so crowded, busy, and stressful. You have to visit if you've never done so. It's not something I would like to experience on a daily basis because I mean who likes to be touching elbows with so many people? But the experience was unforgettable and fun and the restaurants I ate at... More

So you're going to New York. I suppose you will have to see Times Square but do it once and then move on. There is nothing good about it. The restaurants are over priced and average at best. It is full of panhandlers looking to extract you from your money for everything from comedy shows to bus tours. Bare assed... More

This place is definitely worth going to at least once. Even late at night the place is crowded, at least on a Saturday night anyway. Although it is reminiscent of Vegas only Vegas is cleaner and IMO the energy is better in Vegas.

Nothing like walking out of the subway to the lights and noise of Times Square for the first time. We got to experience it on week nights and the weekend - definitely very different experiences. No where in the world is like Times Square!

Everyone knows Times Square, so you cannot go to NYC and not be drawn there. Beware though, they are re-vamping the whole area so there are large parts that are cordoned off where construction work is taking place, so it seems even more crowded that usual. It's still one of the most vibrant places in the world though, especially at... More

If you are in New York and never been to Times Square then its a place you have to go and see. But once done you dont really need to return. The crowds are rather large and thats being polite. The hawkers can be rather annoying and then there are road works which, as it is New York, certainly need... More

Crowded, packed, should be experienced once in a life time. Not a lot more needs to be said. You just go and wonder around and watch the madness.
