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.

  • The area is full of life, with street vendors, street performances and lots of visitors. We visited several times since we stayed close by.  more »
  • Hey, it's Times Square. Hint: See the lights, eat somewhere else. Okay, there's good cheesecake but the good pastrami is elsewhere.  more »
