“Out of the way but well worth the stop”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This historical presentation is very neat. There is a place to write your wishes for the upcoming year. Using a small square of tissue paper, it is put into a box with the millions of others and released as confetti at midnight New Year's Eve. The kids thought it a brilliant activity. There were movie reels of years past in Times Square and the actual ball that is dropped - all lights and colors.

“Window to the world”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Flooded with people from all over the world. I don't know if there would be some other place that would give an opportunity to come across people from do many countries. Not even in Orlando. The large screen TV wherein u can see your picture is a special attraction.

“Public restroom access!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

You get to take your picture with the new year's ball, and they have public access to restrooms!! This might not seem like a big deal now, but when in NYC, bathrooms are scarce. Mark this location on your map.

“Must See at Night”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Great in the day but better at night. I truly only walked over to see the lights. It is better at Christmas time but it was nice anyway. I have to say that parking is crazy but we parked down by the Warf and walked our way around to all of the buildings we wanted to see and finally time square. Parking is expensive but it was worth using a garage.

“Free and Empty”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Very interesting exhibit that has lots of memorabilia and gives a detailed history of Times Square. Nice place to spend some time and escape the crowds because it was empty. And Free!!!! Maybe the best thing I did in New York.
