I LOVED Times Square. Every time we walked past or through it I found it so impressive. So bright and the atmosphere is buzzing. Watch out for the characters dressed up, the offer a photo and then want paying.

It will be crowded. It will be bright. It will be loud. Everything will be expensive. And you will love it. At least for a while. Once you tire of the crowds head down one of the streets and look for the great restaurants and...More

Times Square is crowded with people and full with stimulating sights, sounds, and smells. The plasma billboard are big and beautiful, the traffic noise mixed with music is a cacophony of sound and finally the food carts have everything from wonton soup to roasted chestnuts....More

The lights during November were great. Crowded but that's the center !! We visited the M&M store. So nice. Our grandson loved it. I have never seen so many M&M of different colors.

We went to the square quite a lot as our hotel was just around the corner, it can get very busy, there is lots going on and it's great just to see all the lights. This area is well policed and I felt very safe.
