Just walk around. There is so much to see.

This is New York! Tons of people, roads are bumper to bumper and there are tree performers at every corner. If you go earlier in the day there are less crowds.

This is a good place to start when you arrive in New York as you know you won't be ripped off and they give good advice about day tickets, weekly tickets, plus tours. Also good info on the shows, always willing to help where they can

Stop in to get some helpful hints about NYC in general but the Times square area more specifically. Also hints on other places to visit in around NYC.

This is not my favorite place in New York City, but it is a must if it's your first time visiting. Get cheap discount tickets for same day Broadway plays.

This place is always incredible. The lights, the masses of people, great place to people watch and have a nice cup of coffee or hot chocolate.

I don't know what I expected to see but this was not it. Everyone raves about Times Square and I found it to be boring. Just lights........ Maybe in the summer months they have something different going on ???? Shopping in Times Square was good though

Obviously Times Square is going to be packed, unless you're there in the wee hours or something. But it's definitely a place to see! :)

There is a ticket booth close by and is a great place to grab broadway show tickets. Can get crowded at opening times but if you get there early enough there are plenty of bargains to get.

Having grown up in a big city, I was more annoyed by the tourist and crowds. If you're not the ooh aah type, everyone else will annoy you. You'd be surprised at how people will stop dead in their tracks to take a photo, as if no one is behind them. My patience doesn't allow me to have this trait... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
