Safe and secure area with more than enough to do. We did a 3 day weekend of 2 shows, a carriage ride and a walk thru of Columbia University.

Times Square has it all. The sights and sounds of New York City. People watch, shop, eat and then some. Spend the day, or just a couple hours. So much to do, adventures, and tours. You will never be bored!!!

Times square is definitely one of the icons of NYC so it is a must see. It is really close to broadway so you can visit while going to see a show.
