If you love people and people watching, this is the place for you. Thousands of people on the street Broadway / Times Square area. Many stores to buy souvenirs and people selling items on the street. Cartoon, etc, characters everywhere.

We went to see Alladin. At the tkts offices I've been told that there are no discounted tickets to this show. We went to the theater and bought partial view seats for 67$ (instead of 128$!).

A definite MUST SEE. Amusing during the day but magical at night. Very touristy but that's why people come here! Lots of cellphone photo ops.

It is an iconic scene, but something I would prefer to do from a tour bus. Crowded and lots of construction.

Not only was the play magical , but Broadway itself was such an experience. The lights the restaurants . The huge bonus after the play was the performers came out and signed our programs for us. It doesn't get any better then that

Think we must have covered the entire length of Broadway and it's certainly a very long one. Even if you don't intend visiting a show no visit to NY would be complete without a trip to Broadway.

there are actually very few theatres on Broadway, so seeing a show anywhere in the city is good enough. Broadway is actually the longest road in New York, full of shops, restaurants and the odd theatre.

This was as expected. Lots of people giving leaflets which was annoying but half price ticket booth worked well. Get there 1430 for 1500 opening to avaiod the queue.

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.
