If you come to Y you need to take the usual pictures but don't fall for the tourist traps by eating around the area, the food quality is not usually great and it's pricier than usual.

This is Time Square. Not my cup of tea. This is Time Square. You know what it is about before you go. Bright, glitzy, busy, tourist filled. Not what I consider time well spent in NYC.

Times Square is great. Tons to do and see here. Food shopping and entertainment all in the same place. This is a very busy place. Thousands of people everywhere. We always felt safe in this area. Police presence is high here. Definitely recommend Times Square....More

Hello Driving through NYC can be a nightmare, it is very busy with Taxies and emergency vehicles. One option is to get the subway to Time Square, there is a lot to see there. Also you can get one of the Guided Bus Tours... More

Applebee’s is down the road, quick, cheap, variety, a seat and bathrooms. Not with a large group though or you will be hit with a surcharge

My first time to see NYC and I have waited so so so long. Visiting with husband and two kids under 4yrs. Will have a long flight so need settle in time on arrival. Arriving late April, 16 days to take it all in. Accom - was going to find a B&B place, midtown location but many friends are saying vibe is better away from city so I'm now looking at Brooklyn around Williamsburg. I'm feeling overwhelmed as it seems so big and so many choices. Obviously location is important with kids as...More

Okay, I'll address a couple of things. First, we don't really have B&Bs here. Our zoning laws and real estate prices make them ill suited for the city. You'll be looking at hotels. Focus on your budget for that, that will dictate what you're looking at in terms of where you stay. Second, with two kids under the age of four you're going to want a hotel that's close to the things you're seeing so you'll be able to let them nap, rest before dinner, etc. Basically everything you want...More

Cool Sports Bar in Midtown (5 Replies)
Hi guys! I need a sports bar with a lot of televisions to watch the 9ers game on Sunday. Pretty much a bar that will cover every game as I don't think the 9ers game will be on TV on the East Coast. My boyfriend is a huge 9ers fan. Sad I know! Anyways, we have tickets to Wicked on Sunday afternoon at 3pm, but he would like to catch the rest of the game after the show. Any ideas? I'd kind of like to get away from Times Square.

Whiz.....yeah I just wanted to get out of Times Square. Anything fairly close to our show that won't be full of tourists. Even if we have to take the subway that's okay. I just thought there may be something within walking distance that's not so touristy. I'm sure there are tons of sports bars all over the city as you said, but I have no idea where they are as I usually do not look for sports bars while I'm NYC. I'll check out the link you provided.

Even if she buys 5 hoodies at a $30 cost savings each, it's not really worth it. Think of what you are paying for that one day of your vacation :-) Rather than lose an entire day of your trip, plus pay for the bus tour to the outlets, you can simply pay retail for the clothing items and shop in NYC. Stores will also have sale racks. It will feel "more cool" to be in a the "real" stores vs an outlet mall. Prices will probably still be less than what you would pay in the U.K. Selection...More
