    Crowded. Bright. Lots of shopping and food. Be careful of street actors. If you take a picture with them they will want a tip. So don't take a picture. Ladies watch your purse and men your wallet. It's so bust it would be easy for someone to snatch your purse or wallet. So have fun but be smart.

    Great place to enjoy with loved ones or just go on an adventurous city sightseeing by exploring all the tourist attraction, even if you may be a NYC resident! One day is not enough to fully let yourself be free of all worries and immerse yourself in this great city streets. There are so many restaurants 🍴 to dine in, hotels to stay at, stores, gift shops to visit and lots of other places to explore. Bring a good camera 📷 for souvenirs. Highly recommend to New Yorkers and all tourists! - Noticeable from normal traffic, - No FREE public parking anywhere, - Public transportation is favorable, - Wheelchair ♿ accessible, - No public restroom 🚻, - Clean plaza, - Help keep NYC cleaner, - Area patrolled by the police and security, - Help keep NYC safer: see something, say something,

    Absolutely beautiful at Christmas time. Very festive & full of all kinds of little shops. People on the streets putting on little shows. The ice skating ring is so beautiful. It's everything you expect New York to be at Christmas time. All the pictures and TV shows of Times Square and the Christmas tree do no justice. It is a thousand times even more gorgeous in person.

    Exciting but sometimes not kid friendly. There were naked painted women walking around and alcohol. There was a truck always around selling 'weed candy'. Great entertainment for adults, bright lights and action. Dancing people and characters for picture taking, yummy food and talented street vendors. People were not as rude as i was told to expect. Very friendly and helpful. N

    A big square in the bustling city. The place becomes further enchanting in the evenings. The electronic displays start glittering all over. The view is uniquely captivating. A festive mood appears all around. Many groups will be seen here enjoying walking all over. But the movement is managed efficiently.

    Times Square is a major commercial intersection, tourist destination, entertainment center and neighborhood in the Midtown Manhattan section of New York City. A place full of life, color, fun, lights, huge crowd and gigantic buildings. It is one of the must visit spots when in New York. It is a big attraction because of it's towering digital billboards and lights all around the place. There are varieties of shops, eateries, cafes and restaurants along both sides of the road. You can take a walk on the streets and feel the liveliness. Just near the Times square there are people dressed in different movie characters and you can click pictures with them in exchange of some bucks.

    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! IT was a great experience. you know if you meet someone at times square you will meet hi again

    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.
