Named after the 'New York Times', which moved here in 1924, Times Square is a vibrant, neon-lit area in the heart of the Theater District. Over the years, this area has transformed with increasing number of hotels, office towers, and commercial businesses that have sprung up here. Conde Nast, megastores, and theme restaurants have also set up shop. Times Square remains the city's favorite venue for New Year's Eve, where a huge street party is highlighted by a glitter ball dropped from Times Tower. The Times Square Alliance, which was founded in 1992, works for the betterment and promotion of this most popular New York City attraction.
This place is vibrant and fast paced. It was a lot of fun. I probably wouldn't go here everyday if I lived in NYC, but for a vacation every once and a while, Times Square is awesome. I recommend the Virgin Records store and the M&M store. It feels very safe here also. I always feel safer in a big crowd.
I loved this place, becuase there was sooooo much to do and see. So many places to eat, people to see, and even catch a free concert or two.
If you want to see some insane people, than check this place out. There was even some guy screaming "NO PAIN" with a live cat on his head.
The only thing you need to be aware of is that bus tour people are on every flipping block of this area, and the best thing to d is to say you have already been on one.
These bus tours are really good. They take you all over the city and you can hop off and catch the next one every 10-15 minutes. I did this in March and it was great. If you don't like the tour guide, than hop off and wait for a better one to come. They have over 70,00 double decker buses, so it's a big thing.
Overall, you guys have to try out Times Square, the center of the Universe!!!
I loved NYC;All of it.I would really love 2 live there only if I could aford it I would live in Manhattan.There was nothing I didn't like about NYC.Well there was 1thing I didn't like;And;Only 1thing;And that was the cost of everything.Love;Debra Melton
It was my first trip to NY as an adult and my first trip during the Christmas holiday season. The trip was one that I will never forget. The weather for December was great and atmosphere was magical. As I walked down the street and saw Time Square for the first time (other than TV)I said to myself what took me so long! I visited during the daytime hours and knew I had to return at night. Now I understand one's love for NYC!
This was my first visit to NYC and we rode the subways from the theatre district to the financial district and nothing was more excillarating than Times Square at night. That lights were awesome. The stores are busseling but I wanted to be outside with the people and watch all of the video screens and displays. You would think it would be advertisement overload but something about the combination of it all turns it into artwork and it becomes magic.
If you want a carriage ride, the guys are negotiable. The later you wait and earlier in the week, the better your chances of a lower price. The prices in Central Park will be higher no matter what, but hey, its Central Park!
When it gets real late the guys with the knock offs come out on the streets with their bundles that makes them look like homeless people until they open it for you when they ask if you would like to buy Gucci sunglasses. Well we all know they are not REAL Gucci, but they will argue to the end that their purses are REAL leather Coach, Prada, Gucci and what a bargain you will get for $90. Then you tell then they will sell the same thing in Chinatown for $40 they squirm.
Oh don't miss out on getting a photo op with the Naked Cowboy or Cowgirl, wow right in the heart of Times Square. He even had white briefs on. I mean a cowboy don't wear those sissy color underwear.
Our favorite Restaurant in Times Square besides the View on top of the Mariott Marquet was a little Italian on 49th off of Broadway it says Bar Cusina Italian on the door. I dont remember the name of the restaurant but awesome food! We had chocolate linguini with shrimp mmmmm good. The owner even gave us a glass of complimentary wine because they were not quite open yet for lunch.
I could go on and on. I loved Times Square and Yes I would go back in a NY second.
MY boyfriend tok me to NewYork last April. We arived about 11:30pm we walked to time square, and it was as bright as day even at midnight. I was amazed. I just stood there and turned a complete circle trying to take in everything at once. It was the most amazing thing that i have ever seen!!
Since we dont live very far my family makes frequent trips to the city and I adore Times Square!I know all the ins and outs and it is a place you should visit any time of the year but i reccomend the holiday season...
