“Favorite place of NY”
Reviewed May 7, 2010

It is one of the most significant sight (in my opinion) in New York. It's my favorite place in the city. It is the hallmark of the city. Worth a visit both day and night. Beacon markings and signs everywhere, around restaurants and theaters-musical at every corner. It's really fantastic.

“WOW! What a place”
Reviewed April 1, 2010

I have only seen Times Square in pictures or in movies. It was totally awesome. It was a sight to behold. There are a lot of things to do there.

“Best Seen at Night!”
Reviewed March 25, 2010

Times Square is a must see on any visit to NYC. My biggest tip is to go at night! It’s an experience just to see it and it’s most impressive at night when it’s so lit up that it practically looks like daytime. Just a couple of blocks from the Theatre district, check it out after a Broadway show. If you want to pick up postcards or other kitschy souvenirs, this is the spot in the city to do it.

“Best at night”
Reviewed March 23, 2010

Times Square is, perhaps, the busiest and most "touristy" location in the city, so a leisure stroll through it is not recommended, and it's probably best to stay away from it entirely during the day. The restaurants there are crowded and expensive, and the shopping consists largely of chain stores and junk shops. However, there's nothing quite like walking through it at night and seeing how it sparkles. You'll feel like you're at the center of the universe - and perhaps you are.
