Often it is seen as a part of Times Square, but it is a seperate square in the north of Times Square. In the center of the sqare, there is the statue of Father Duffy. There are also several bars on the square.

TKTS is a great place to get discounted tickets to shows that have been around Broadway for awhile, or off Broadway shows. Anything that is currently popular, likely will not have tickets for a discount here. They have two signs listing what is available and...More
