Lots of stores and restaurants that are just as crowded and just as vibrant ! Go there or... More

If you have not seen it, its all there on Time Square, from nude women with the flags painted on them to suited men/women on the way to work, don't forget the latin dancers on the street.

Overrated place in a concret forest of CO2 and obesity with good make up. Not even good to cure shopping fevers. The cheap jersey gardens mall are one hour away from port authority bus terminal.

It is an amazing place to stand in and just look. It is like a sight you can only imagine almost not real but wonderful at the same time

First sight of the times square will be orgasmic, but another few trips helps realize a meaningless craze.

Just like I imaged it to be, full of hustle & bustle big lights & screens are a plenty of advertising. It has everything going on from naked cowboys to Cinderella's. To shops & shops you could never starve there.

You can rarely find a toilet in New York unless you are in a big store or restuarant. These were decent, so probably best to use them if you are in the area. Not much else to say about this place, they will only help you if you want tickets for something.

We were there In Aug. 2012. Loved staying at the Cassa, it was so close to Times Square. We were within walking distance of Broadway and Central Park, museums. NBC. We went everywhere on the bus tours. Loved New York.

We visited New York in January and dropped into the Times Square Visitors Centre in search of a bathroom. The bathrooms were closed off to the public so we asked some of the staff for the location of other facilities. They were incredibly unhelpful and rude! If you are a visitor and looking for help.......don't waste your time going there.
