Everthing you would expect from New York. Hustle & bustle, pavements packed, traffic manic (better of wolking in rush hour).
That said the buildings are amazing - mixing many styles of architecture seamlessly. Central park walk around / through is a must.
But - MAD EXPENSIVE!!! $12 for a pint of Guinness. Good - not up scale - restaurants (with wine) no change out of $200 a head. Meal for 3 in Smith & Wolensky $1000 (inc tip) & only 2 bottles of wine (service was excellent & deserts were on the houses!!)

Times Square is a MUST for anyone traveling to NYC. The excellent NYPD presence was very reassuring. This weekend (12/1-12/6 2022) was my first visit back since the Pandemic and I was pleased to see things seemly back to normal.

The main negative is that pot is now legal in NY and it is everywhere in NYC, but especially in Times Square. Not one to partake, the smell was nauseating.

Also, the Midnight Moment (11:57 pm-12 am) which I was really excited about was pretty underwhelming.

Plenty of shops and places to eat. DO NOT accept anything 'free" from anyone on the street, such as CDS's, books or cards.

This is the place to go at any hour of the day for a grand mass of people of all persuasions. Street performers, food vendors, and just ordinary people of many ethnicities. And don't forget shopping!

I loved every part of it.
9/11 museum is closed on Tuesday.
Be aware of men handing out cd’s. We ended up with a blank cd that cost 30 dollars.. it was all very quick and intimidating.

Time square used to be fun but now it's full of people dressed up in costumes that harass you if you take pictures near them. There are plenty of better places to go than times square in New York.
