“Better at night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2011

While it is not awesome, it is another must see sight while in NYC. It is extremely busy all day and night but fun to see for a few minutes. Check it out on the way to a play or dinner.

“Don't miss it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2011

Times Square is vibrant and full of energy. It is a totally different experience during the day and at night. Take the time to visit it and spend time to look around and appreciate its buzz and sounds.

Get ready for a ton of people. This is the main place were out of towners go. A nice place for watching people and buying things. Also looking at the billboards.

“Times Square - great people watching place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2011

Visit Times Square in the day and at night it's surreal.
I loved it, its so busy and mad....................
The City Cops are really helpful and nice and will let you take photos of them. Look out for Bubber Gump's shrimp restaurant, Hard Rock Cafe and Planet Hollywood.
Pop in to Toys R Us to see the ferris wheel as well.

“Crazy Busy and a Bit surreal. My favorite place in NY.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2011 via mobile

When you go you must walk and shop and take a ton of pictures. You might get ran over by a taxi if you aren't careful but it is worth the risk. A must see.
