“Awesome!”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

We passed through Times Square several times on our trip. It was amazing every time! Although it was in winter, so we didn't get the full effect. It was still bustling with people and lights. The stores are open really late. There are great restaurants and attractions. Always a must in NYC!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

Times Square is an amazing place to go shopping and explore New York City's downtown. Also you could spend an entire afternoon visiting the Square and go shopping. This place is awesome fir anyone as there is a great diversity of stores.

“NYC must see”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

For most people I guess this is the heart of NYC. It is certainly as bustling and surrounded by giant ad screens as I had expected but somehow it is a little soulless. I guess there is no real central feature, like Trafalgar Sq has Nelsons column. I can imagine that on New Years Eve it is really buzzing but in the middle of May it was just somewhere to walk through.

“Exploring”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Bright lights, people, noise - Spider Man - it was over whelming but beautiful at the same time. Loved that I recognised so many landmarks

“Brighter and busier than on tv!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

We stayed within walking distance and frequented T.S. It is a very busy place filled with shopping, vendors, restaurants, shopping, lights, big screens, lights, street performers, and more lights. Lots of fun!
