The whole purpose of my trip was to be in Times Square fo New Year's Eve! Worth all the lines and the walking. I was not one of the folks that spent the whole day there waiting. Made it into one of the "pens" by 10:00 pm. It was crowded but the people around us were great! The NYPD deserves... More

Yet another iconic must see place in NYC. We loved Times Square and visited 4 times - during the day and at night. It's smaller than I imagined but loads of fun. Fabulous place to just soak up the atmosphere especially at night, there's so many different characters around. All the bright lights are spectacular. So much going on all... More

First time in NYC and we stayed in Times Square. We were amazed at all the hustle and bustle, the brightness, lived all the huge big screens. Definitely something to see!

We stayed at a hotel right at Times Square. It is a great place to get the true feel of NYC. All of the theaters are walking distance from Times Square, plus there are also great restaurants. You can ride the subway from here to other sights. I recommend staying here when visiting NYC.

... however, at night - WOW! Yes, TS is a major hub and a crossroad to humanity ... but let's face it, during daylight hours its kind of shabby. At night however, its a beacon to the world - THIS is the time when I love to be in the vicinity of the lights and glitz and the energy bounces... More

Fun and exhilarating. I like it better than Vegas. Stood in line on Saturday for half price tickets to an afternoon matinee Broadway show, Honeymoon in Vegas with Tony Danza. Bizarre but hilarious. Starbucks in Times Square has a large screen where you take your picture and e-mail it using a frame that says Times Square. So much energy, it... More

Visited a few times during the day and night as it was close by. The screens and stairs are nice. Must visit the toys r us there, especially if you have kids. Only downfall was that we constantly kept getting stopped by people trying to sell comedy tickets or bus tickets. Pretty annoying.

Best tip i can give is not to be turned off by the older gentlemen hawking tickets near the reduced price ticket booth...they can really steer you straight into some great plays maybe not as well known and also great restaurants just off Broadway. Just tell them what you are looking for. We returned after dinner to the area and... More

Times Square is heart of tourist fun in New York City. There is so much going on there that we could have spent hours seeing it all. We used the subway as our mode of transportation and Times Square is easily accessed. We went to two Broadway Musicals, had dinner and hung out in front of the Good Morning America... More
