First time my 15 year old daughter experienced Time Square. Had a great time walking around and taking everything in. July is hot and very crowded. If I return it will be in the Spring or Fall.

Only thing that compares to NYC is Tokyo. Nothing like New York Times Square. Best way to explore Times Square is by foot so wear runners (everyone does). Get the camera ready.

I can say we have been there and done that. Very crowded at all times. If you are on your way to somewhere else, make sure you know exactly how to get there, it is hard to maneuver with so many people.

We walked through Times Square during the day and back through and down Broadway at night. What a transformation, completely different atmosphere. An absolute must visit but go at night to capture the lights and buzz

Very busy and lights right are amazing. The light pollution is extraordinary and the lights are very bright! Lots of police around and Dooley dressed up looking for money for a photo!

Good to see once for maybe an hour but overall it's just a crowded, tacky and dirty place full of tourists. Not much to do there apart from go in the shops or take pictures

It is an okay place to visit. Lots of people and typically very crowded, but a landmark of NYC. A must do for all first time visitors to NYC!

You know how they say a person sees 20,000 advertisements in a year, well here's 20,000 in 5 minutes. Not worth going here at all.

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of

Don't know why anyone would stay there. It's overpriced, overcrowded, and noisy.

I stayed half a block away at the Sanctuary hotel. Far enough to be away from the noise but less than a five minute walk to get there.
