This is the tourist trap to beat all tourist traps but if you go to New York and miss Times Square well you will kick yourself for getting so close and missing out on.... a ton of advertisements. This place has no charisma at all but we needed to see it. Can only recommend as we did, walk through Times Square en route to your next destination and get outta there fast. The pics actually look more impressive than my memories.

I think we just found many more places with more heart and soul than Times Square.

    I'm told that Times Square is a lot more pleasant now that they have banned the cars from Broadway, so Times Square is now really a square and not just an intersection. I hope the new mayor keeps it that way.

      My dad has recently been to New York and he said that he loved Times Square, it must have improved I'm sure
