There was trash everywhere. Also add in a lot more drunk people than I have ever seen in NYC along with a lot more crazy. We will be back but it was disappointing.

Lots of flashing/changing signs and hoardings. We didn't find it as spectacular as we expected just crowded.

Always interesting to see even though we weren’t really interested in shopping etc. A nice walk by all the signs and see a lot of people...

What new can be said about Times Square?? Impressive display of high tech gluttony and fun place to visit. Being on Broadway is fun but watch out for all the street sellers, they are prolific and persistent. With seeing at least once!

Times Square looked just like the pictures I had seen on TV. Theatres and shops in abundance of course. City bus rides operate and are easy to find. Lots of street stalls too.

It's bright that's for sure. We stayed at the Hilton Hotel which is a stones throw from here. Quite busy and it doesn't take long to walk through it. Lots of shops, cafes and billboards and plenty of people walking and stopping to take photos....More

A visit to the hustle and bustle of Times Square is always a fun experience. Be ready to walk and shop with thousands of others in one of the busiest little parts of the world. If you get hungry stop in to Joes pizza and...More

We were told in all of NYC by hot dogs from the yellow and red carts. With how busy NYC is you have to sometimes grab food and go. #lovedNYC.
