Create an itinerary including Times Square
Few places conjure up as many iconic images of New York as Times Square, the tourist center of the city, filled with bright video screens and LED signs flashing their messages 24 hours a day. Despite its name, this city landmark isn't a square at all, but the triangular intersections of several main roads in the middle of Manhattan. Stop at the prominent visitor center for restaurant and hotel recommendations, free maps, and ticket sales for many tourist attractions. Often called the crossroads of the world, the area features themed restaurants, theaters, and shops. PutTimes Square into our New York City trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Heavy smell of pot everywhere. People constantly trying to sell you crap. At least 30 people tried to sell me a tour from one company. Nasty people in costumes try to get you to pay them to shoot...

  • Had a great time here at Times Square, I am happy that there is a big Police presence here so that nobody gets way out of line. FYI… don’t go to Times Square if you cannot stand being around a lot of people. This place gets busy even on a weekday/ weeknight.!! Fun times though, highly recommended if you’ve never been here.
  • I loved going to Time Square at night. It was really nice and everyone was doing their own thing, lots of people there but there were no issues or trouble. There are lots of cool stores to shop at, lots of eateries even off the main streets. There were people out there Performing and so much to see and do. Everyone was happy and the vibe was good. I do highly recommend going to Time Square at night!!! The lights and screens on the buildings are so colorful and huge, it's a sight to see!!!
