This place is active. If you have a fear of Covid, this is not the place for you. We are in the city often, and this is always a good place to people watch. Its a fantastic reality show.

Local and walking distance to nearly everything.

Our hotel is here as we wanted to be in the heart of NYC. Not such a good idea with children, I knew it would be busy but did not think it would be as mental as it was. Location wise for us it was perfect with many thangs on the door step or only round the corner. We wanted the children to have the full New York experience we got it so I guess we tick that box.

There's a ton to do here, and one of my favorite things is watching all the performers and events that they host here!

Nighttime Craziness

Times Square during the day is fun and busy but of course you want the pictures of everything when it is lit up at night! However, if you are a women travelling by yourself or with friends I would avoid this area. It is an extremely touristy spot where men frequently came up and harassed me and my friend for our social media or pictures, very weird and unsettling. Go during the day or bring a guy with you at night!

Some Regret with Kids
Sep. 2021
I wanted our 9 year olds to experience Times Square, but really it's not the place to be. SO much weed being smoked, people acting like fools, super crowded, and no way to stay a few feet apart from others who don't wear masks. Should have waited until they were older and/or no more COVID.

Even if many other locals try to avoid this area because it can get crowded here especially around New Year prior COVID, Times Square is still one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world.
We love the Energy here and need to stop by every other week because the atmosphere here just screams: New York!!!

My family got a kick out of the street artist perform. The shopping was fun as well. I was happy with how safe it was to freely walk around.

The tickets are for the wax museum as Times Square is free. Great place to walk at night and a few square blocks so plenty to see. The street performers are decent, but obviously not worth what they're asking. Bring some 5s and 1s to tip them as they always ask for 10s and 20s. The shops and street vendors give you plenty of options for food; try Junior's for cheesecake and a Reuben (the sauerkraut there is legendary). I got some great pictures of the New Years' ball and if you get close enough you can see the crystal grid (4000 individual crystals, thanks full city tour guide).

I stayed three days in new York. I picked a hotel as close as possible to times square.Every thing was there.lights , advertising billboards,People, shops, events .this square never sleep.
I went there a few times. In the nights is more attractive. It is crowded till 3 am.foods , drinks,famous brands,tourists.
It is something that you can not explain you should feel it.
