We stayed in the Double Tree in Times Square. Omg the ambience and hub of NYC is there to experience whether you go for a stroll, visit Broadway, watch the street performers, or simply spot the naked coy boy lol. You have got to take time to do this ❤️❤️❤️

It continues to amaze me! Broadway is a place of its own! Never quiet. Never empty streets. Never boring! So much to see! FUN! FUN! FUN! An experience not to be missed!

Just wonderful to walk down Broadway and see all the shows that are going on. We went to see Chicago and it was definitely worthwhile.

I visit the city several times a year my whole life. Broadway has been ruined by super crowded streets and areas. You cannot move without being constantly being bumped or shoved. People are super rude and disgusting.

Broadway around Times Square kind of thrashy. Don't forget Broadway runs the length of Manhattan, can't say anything about the parts of Broadway we didn't see but around Times Square lots of places to by cheap gifts.

We decided to walk from No 1 Broadway up to Columbus Circle at the corner of Central Park on a Saturday afternoon at the end of June 2016. Well worth the walk. We allowed ourselves 6 hours to do it so we were never rushed, and were able to take in al the sights and take a few detours round... More

This is what New York is like in the movies. Its fast, bright, loud and busy, even at midnight! Go to the TKTs booth for sameday theatre tickets at huge discounts - we got 50% off fantastic tickets for Matilda.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
