"See it once, then stay away!!!!" Times Square Tip by grkboiler

Times Square, New York City: 47 reviews and 49 photos

  Why did I come here?
by grkboiler

Times Square is tourist hell. It is loaded with bright lights - mostly from the flash of cameras, overpriced restaurants with below-average food like ESPN Zone, street vendors and souvenir shops selling garbage, and way too many people.

Unique Suggestions: See it once just for the experience, then leave quickly.

Fun Alternatives: If you want to see the uniqueness of New York, go to another neighborhood like the Upper West (or East) Side, Greenwich Village, or Soho.
