What a bright place to be of an evening, everywhere changes, I wouldn't say it gets any busier because that area never seems to be quiet. Loved the area and everything that was going on.

By far my dost favourite place in the city! Yes it's busy, full of other tourists, bright and never sleeps but it's amazing and it's the best place to feel the vibrancy, electricity and fun of New York!

Very busy, but great fun! Just sit on the steps and watch the craziness of New York rush by! Visit the shops and restaurants and pick up tickets for a show. Tour buses depart nearby!

Was not all that impressed with Times Square. London's Trafalgar Square is many times better. There was some building works and road works going on and this caused a lot of traffic and crowd congestion. Still it is worth sitting in the 'stand' just to watch the world go bye for a while just so you can rest your feet.

Very, very brash, very busy and very over the top, but loved it anyway! The place to be if you want the big lights etc. M & Ms shop nearby, worth a visit too!

Glad we didn't stay here. Nice to come for a few hours to see the lights, hustle and bustle but glad to leave for the peace of Broadway. Every other step we were harassed by touts trying to sell us bus trips or Hare Krishna's wanting us to have a leaf!! and that was in January bet it's worse in... More

If you are in NYC, then this place is a must see. It's definitely one of my favorites. Bright and colorful lights, care free people, myriad museums and restaurants would leave you mesmerized.

Visit once to say you've been there, see the sights everyone has in their arsenal of holiday pics on fb, a few movie references an famous street performers, then leave it well alone. The novelty of the bustle wears thin rapidly especially if you don't have somewhere to visit in the square. Be wary of small kids being accosted by... More
