Time square is not as big as you imagine. It is crowded during the day and evening but the best time to see it is early morning before all the touts and players or caricatures arrive to pester you for money. Lots of known shops and things going on. Better in the early morning when you a see it all... More

We visited Times Square during the heavy snow of january 2016 and had the unique opportunity of walking up the centre of the road as snow had blanketed the city to an historical degree. Traffic other than emergency vehicles were banned from the street and most theatres and shops were closed. The place is great in the summer but in... More

After arriving in New York, headed straight to Times Square and it did not fail to impress. September and people everywhere at 8pm at night, it is truly a spectacle to behold. The lights, people it is awesome!! A must see for any traveller to New York

I have visited Time Square so many times in the past and it is a "must see" for anyone visiting New York. The hustle and bustle really does live under to all of the hype. The lights, colours and crowds all are quite breathtaking in their own way and today whilst whizzing by in an uber was no exception. This... More

Mah. It's ok. A little crowded. I just needed to find out the time. Had a flight leaving at 430 and needed to find out what time it was so we knew when to leave. 3/5 stars

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
