Create an itinerary including Times Square
Few places conjure up as many iconic images of New York as Times Square, the tourist center of the city, filled with bright video screens and LED signs flashing their messages 24 hours a day. Despite its name, this city landmark isn't a square at all, but the triangular intersections of several main roads in the middle of Manhattan. Stop at the prominent visitor center for restaurant and hotel recommendations, free maps, and ticket sales for many tourist attractions. Often called the crossroads of the world, the area features themed restaurants, theaters, and shops. PutTimes Square into our New York City trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We stayed in a hotel in Times square, there are many shops and cafes but there are always a lot of street performers, always very busy but great if you like people watching

  • A must on your visit to NY, billboards light up a dark wet night, down side is the continued strong smell of cannabis which was a shock.
