"Enjoy the magic of Times Square" Times Square Tip by Jefie
Times Square, New York City: 272 reviews and 432 photos
Times Square was "born" in 1906 with the construction of the New York Times building. As theatres and restaurants opened up along Broadway, Times Square enjoyed quite a few years of popularity until the economic crisis that hit the country in the 1930s changed the picture and the vocation of the neighborhood. Seedy clubs and peepshows took over the area, turning it into a place most people avoided except maybe on New Year's, for the giant ball drop. In the 1990s, plans were made to "clean up" Times Square, and have proven to be surprinsingly successful. Today, Times Square is a safe area, its theatres are popular again, and many companies such as Toys R' Us, Disney, Hershey's and M&M's have opened up larger-than-life stores, turning the place into a paradise for the young at heart! On top of all the shopping, there's always some kind of entertainment going on at Times Squares: chances are you'll run into the famous naked cowboy, some Disney characters, and hilarious street performers. If you're not afraid of crowds, don't miss the experience of walking around Times Square at night. If that doesn't make you feel like you've made it to NYC, then nothing will!
