Ok, I've lived in Manhattan most of my life. If you've never been to NYC, I guess you need to stop by to cross Times Square off the list. Or if you're going to a show, you're there. There's no other reason to go unless you like lousy overpriced touristy food and shops that have nothing to do with the... More

Even if you do not like this place, you have to visit it while you are in NY even if you are just passing through to go to a show. I lived in NY and used to walk through here everyday. It is not the real NY, as nowhere else in NY is like it but it is interesting. Sure... More

No better place to get the NYC buzz. Very busy, very noisy, very colourfully. Best place to eat here is Hard Rock Cafe. Don't forget your tickets to Broadway theatres from the ticket booths in Times Square.

It had a lot of people indeed, but there is not enough words to discribe the feelings, the magic of the lights and the beauty of all that.

There was so much to do. Stay away from the Disney characters wanting to take pics, just looking for money, and don't trust them. Stores were nice, so many people. Cool pictures.

This is a very iconic and beautiful place to visit. It is better at night and with friends. There are lots of places to shop and the culture and nightlife is awesome. There are also good gift shops and even some funny people that hang out in the area. During the day a few homeless people and people asking for... More

This was one of the first places I visted when I got to New Yorkrecently witha group of friends. What a spectacle the place is, its a constant vibe of energy people and other senses coming together that embalms what New York is about. Best visited at night but amazing any time, there are numerous shops and restaurants nearby that... More

So much to see ... the restaurants, the bright neon lights, the theatre marquis, the dressed-up-as-characters people (Elmo, Spiderman, Woody & Buzz, Ninja Turtles, the Statue of Liberty - you never know who you'll see!), the fun shops (M&M World, Hershey's, Hard Rock Cafe), the street artists, the guys selling tickets to local comedy clubs and bus tours, souvenir shops...

It feels like day time down there, the lights are so bright. It truly exemplifies the city that never sleeps.

We visited Times Square at night and it was bright with huge screens everywhere. The place was full of energy. It was like being surrounded by cinema screens all around. Also a nice place to catch some good NYC street food.
