    Great place to see, one of the most busiest street in New York City I know of. It's actually the center of attraction. Almost all tourist want a to visit. You can see the busy street with all the bill boards, the stores and offices. Not to far from Broadway shows if you are interested. It's a street that never sleeps. Great spot but to busy for my liking.

    Personal speaking. Me as a traditional style of person.Times Square means illusion and vanity. everything you want from Times Square. People everywhere, a gathering place of nations. Lots of artistry if you take a look around. I always enjoy sitting on the grandstand and people watching. My advice, don't just look at the screens, take some time to watch those around you. It is pretty entertaining. Don't even bother trying to find parking near here, too expensive. My advice, park outside of Manhattan and take the train in.

    Always a great experience in Times Square. You never know what you’ll see down there and it never disappoints! Plenty of police presence and the shops didn’t have the tourist trap vibe. The food vendors seemed really cool too. The people who will do the portrait drawings were shady, though....all up in our faces and trying to hustle us. Had a blast overall, though!

    Definitely a wonderful experience for all ages. It really comes alive at night with different street vendors and a younger crowd in the evening. We had fun shopping at the gift shops and the Disney store and the m&m shop. Be prepared to walk long distances and to maneuver through the large crowd of people. My family had a wonderful time

    The world famous Times Sq. District is exciting to visit for tourist from around the world. The lights are best viewed in evening. Great photo opportunities avail. My advice is to get away from Times Sq. if you intend to eat lunch or dinner. There are plenty of other options elsewhere within walking distance.

    This place needs no introduction. Times Square, right smack in the middle of the City that never sleep. Food, people, music, theatrical shows, and so much more!!! Accessible via, trains, taxis, ferries or a nice stroll. Cruise on a double decker bus, take a petty cab for your relaxing pleasure. Catch a Broadway Show at one of the many theaters, everything is at your fingertips. Welcome to my City,,, NEW YORK, NEW YORK! !!! The Big Apple,,one giant melting pot , the concrete jungle, COME, STAY, ENJOY, REPEAT😄😄😄

    Times Square is absolutely amazing especially for a first time tourist. Pictures and movies honestly do it no justice. You need to see it with your own eyes and just really look around at how gigantic everything around you truly is. It is pretty cool to say the least. Everyone should experience this at least once in their life time.

    Bright lights and good vibes... what more do you want? If you visit during the day, you'll find many street artists trying to cheer you up. At night, billboards and lights give this part of Manhattan a warm glow. You have to shop here, since it has some of the best shops from around the world! Times Square is so beautiful, and I totally understand why people usually think of it when the word 'New York' is brought up. It is a symbol of everything the city stands for. Honestly, I believe Times Square was the place that made me love New York even more!

    Good if you're a tourist. For people who live here I would recommend going only once to check out what all the fuss is about, and that's it. As a New Yorker you'll not want to come here super often, as the sidewalks are impossible to walk through. I love to walk fast, and this is not the place for me, especially when I'm trying to get somewhere. And forget about trying to drive through here, it's gonna take you forever. Still, great for tourism!

    This is an awesome place to be at almost anytime in the year. I took my family there last summer (2017) and they had a great time. We just enjoyed the atmosphete and awe-inspiring ambience. The kids didn't even want to leave that place. We are looking forward to going there again quite soon. I would recommend visiting Times Square in the night because that's when it really comes alive. You would not regret it.
