“A must see if in NY!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2010

This is a great place to people watch with its numerous restaurants and shops near by. All the advertisements and flashing lights make it an experience not seen in any other city. Plus watching the naked cowboy (and cowgirl - didnt know she even existed) is interesting too!

“Don't Miss It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2010

How can you come to NY and not visit the most famous area, that is known through out the world, and has been filmed tons of times. Great place to people watch, and take photos of the legendary landmarks. There alot of people there during the day so I suggest going early, also you MUST walk around at night to experience the true NY never sleeps feeling.
One negative is the food options, there a few places to sit down and eat but most are over priced due to this being a tourist area. Also watch out for people trying to sell their CD's to you, they are very persuasive and annoying.
But all and all, must do, must see, and sometimes unfortunately must smell.

“Must see at least once!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2010

We did not expect to be star-struck walking up to this intersection but we were. As we stopped in the middle of thousands of people buzzing by to stare, I looked around and we were not the only ones gazing up. Very cool. Loved walking around this part of NYC.

“Great for People Watching!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2010

Our hotel was located at Times Square so we spent a lot of time there. It felt different each time because there is always something different going on. Our first evening was spent people watching and taking in the atmosphere. It was simply amazing! There is a huge police presence, so we felt very safe there. It was also very clean. Much better than what I expected. The stores and restaurants are open very late, so it is great for vacationers.
