Times Square is a huge rip off , overly pricey with little to offer !Dirty, smelly with endless homeless every step of the way. For anyone willing to visit New York, I would not recommend staying or eating in Times Square.

I didn't expect it to be as grand as it actually was, loved the history behind it all and the shops beneath, also loved that they were a wedding couple there and had their pictures taken there. Loved whispering corner too

The abundance of lights makes it feel like night time at 7am. I recommend getting up early and having a wonder around, you'll get the best photos. Also check out Good Morning America being filmed at that time! The place is buzzing all evening! I...More

Don't know why anyone would stay there. It's overpriced, overcrowded, and noisy.
