Of all the places in NYC, times square is one place I would avoid in future. Loads of aggressive street vendors trying to sell NY experience tickets who racially abused you when you decline their offer.
Pop in to see the signs etc, but move on

This place is electrifying! People, stores, street performers, traffic! It is amazing! Loved every minute I spent there.

Safe and secure area with more than enough to do. We did a 3 day weekend of 2 shows, a carriage ride and a walk thru of Columbia University.

Times Square has it all. The sights and sounds of New York City. People watch, shop, eat and then some. Spend the day, or just a couple hours. So much to do, adventures, and tours. You will never be bored!!!

Well you cannot be in New York City and do not spend a couple of hours in Times Square!
It is more beautiful at night, with all the lights!!

Yes it is touristy and crowded however it is on the top of everyone's must do list for a reason. You will be amazed by how bright it is and all the buzz of people. We did some shopping and it was crazy getting in and out and walking inside the stores. We went at night so maybe it's better during the daytime.

Times square is definitely one of the icons of NYC so it is a must see. It is really close to broadway so you can visit while going to see a show.

Depends what type of traveller you are, personally whilst there is a lot of lights and entertainers the restaurants are poor.

Seeing the area in the evening , with all the buildings lit up was breath-taking . Would not have missed it for anything .

We spent Veteran's Day weekend here - I was extremely surprised at how clean the streets are kept and everyone was polite and friendly! All of the restaurants and shops that we visited were great - I could have done without all the "characters" that are there to pose for pictures. Some of them were absurd! Really - an overweight, short & bearded Captain America??????
