“You can't miss Times Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2010

I don't think a trip to New York is complete until you have been to Times Square. Its just a bunch of well lit buildings and billboards but what an amazing thing to see and the crowds are mad. You must see this both day and night.

“The world's most famous city square for a reason!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2010

As an avid traveler for both business and pleasure, I often run into the problem of deciding what it is that I should actually do in a city to say that I have been to that city. Sure all of the guide books will give you a laundry list of ideas, but where is the straight-forward list of things that absolutely must be seen before you leave? It is here - www.absolutevisit.com

We believe that Times Square is the #1 absolute must visit attraction in all of New York City. A trip to NYC without a visit to Times Square is not truly a visit to the city. Time Square is stunning, magnificent and a site not to be missed! Check it out.

“Favorite place of NY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2010

It is one of the most significant sight (in my opinion) in New York. It's my favorite place in the city. It is the hallmark of the city. Worth a visit both day and night. Beacon markings and signs everywhere, around restaurants and theaters-musical at every corner. It's really fantastic.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2010

I have only seen Times Square in pictures or in movies. It was totally awesome. It was a sight to behold. There are a lot of things to do there.
