Great stroll both during the day and night. One disappointment though, we put in for tickets for David Letterman the moment we had booked our trip. But the lights still made me smile

So much the musical you can choose from and many of them are great! But ticket can be very expensive so plan your visit carefully and bought ticket in advance on the web to avoid disappointment

Broadway is simply amazing and timesquare even though its crowded is fantastic! NYC wouldn't be the same with out it. For cheap broadway tickets the trick is to check out the rush report and wait in line outside the theater until they open at 10 am. I ended up paying $30 bucks for a great show! It's annoying to wait... More

Went in off the street and got better prices & seats than we could from other vendors like Graylines etc. The show is just outstanding and I cannot recommend it more highly. Bring your own food though as they charge like wounded bulls....

Like all central squares of entertainment go at night when the buzz outstrips the ordinary and the darkness hides the realities of the world such as the invisible homeless. Go for a reason - pick a show which suits your taste, don't waver, and immerse yourselves. Try a simple cost effective eatery such as an Italian pizza place after the... More

This was excellent, only about a 40 minute train ride from the New Brunswick Station. I would suggest that you take the time and plan to see a show while in NJ.

They say that New York never sleeps, after walking through Broadway you will understand why. The theaters are actually scattered between 41st and 53rdstreets and from 6th to 9th Avenues. Broadway takes you right in to Times Square
