Times Square, New York City

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. Put Times Square into our New York City trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Hustle bustle just fantastic atmosphere the place is buzzing . Expensive to eat out if you don't want McDonald's or cheap pizza slices . Well worth the time there though .  more »
  • I know, is in all movies set in new york, but in, sit down, enjoy all the variety of folks, of peoples, of oddities, as most original clothes, lights created by commercials continuously variable, on the fronts of all palaces of the area (by the way don't expect a square by square but a set of wide streets, squares, streets) of smells and tastes of many shops is a unique experience. you don't ever want to leave.
