Times Square was not as big an area as I had thought. It is busy day and night and there are plenty of places to eat nearby. There are also innumerable souvenir shops. Road works and pavement closures are a nuisance.

This is a crazy place 24/7!! Loud, lights, people! The people dressed up as characters who take pictures with people for tips are a pain. ***Appalling is seeing a girl, in her 20's, with a feather head-dress on, a thong and body paint to look like an American Flag. Yes a thong and completely topless!!!! I asked a cop if... More

Went on a Sat at lunch time. One of the busiest places that whle day. I guess at night time it would be more spectacular than what i saw. Seems smaller than I thought. Again, it is a must see if you go to New York.

Visiting New York, Times Square was the main place to go for me and my friends. All the time we went there, we did not want to leave. Just amazing place that its almost impossible to explain. You need to experience.

Just visited Times Square last week. Was there both during the day (among other things, to buy tickets at the TKTS booth) and in the evening/night (going to and coming out of a show). Unfortunately, there is a lot of construction (on the roads, sidewalks, and buildings) making movement slow going--especially at night. What's fun about Times Square? I'm not... More

A beautiful fall weekend in Time Square. From a crazy Saturday evening with lights, lights and more lights, interesting people watching, and stores galore, to the quiet, dirty, empty streets on a Sunday morning. It was all an amazing experience.

NYC in a nut shell? I believe Times Square is a "must see" while visiting NYC but as there's much to see it would be unwise to only visit Times Square. TS has numerous TV screens, lights and amusing commercials to see. In the middle of TS there's a statue and behind it there's some sort of stairs where you... More

A great sprawl of people, and lights and food. Go down there at night and just walk. Really is electrifying.
