Reviews: Times Square
General description: Times SquareThe heart of Broadway beats at Times Square. Super central and easy to find either on foot or with the subway. Right in the Theater district in Manhattan the bright lights and colorful billboards have made it a famous iconic symbol and landmark of New York City.

35 reviews Times Square
We spent 4 amazing days in New York and Times Square was our favorite place to be. No matter if day or evening, the square is always crowded. Would not recommend shopping here as it is very expensive. Restaurants are also very overpriced at Times Square, so would recommend going a little further away from the heart of the city. Read more
