Times Square (New York, USA) Reviews
Description:Address: 46th Street b/w Broadway and 9th Avenue.
Newest Review: ... you will know that Times Square is a lot more grand and dramatic. It is a huge tourist attraction due to its shops, restaurants, bars and of course Broadway. The busy intersection used to be called 'Longacre Square' up until 1904 when the New York Times moved their headquarters to the Times Building therefore altering the name, lucky that they did as I don't think Longacre Square has quite ... more

Times Square is a place which for years I had always envisaged after seeing it on numerous television shows and in the movies and when I visited the New York for the first time it was one of the first places I wanted to see. The bright lights and electric atmosphere had me hooked and I was desperate to experience it first hand. To get the full effect I knew that I had to wait until it was dark to see go so that I could see it at its best. The first time I caught a glimpse of the flashing lights I knew that it was going to be something special. I was so excited to see it that being there felt a little overwhelming. My first visit to Times Square was a big deal ... Read the complete review

Times Square, New York City, once a desolate and crime ridden area of the city, before undergoing a transformation into the stunning area it is today. The bit that comes under Times Square is more of a big rectangle. It is Broadway running across diagonally (if memory serves me right, the only diagonal road in Manhattan), briefly touching on 7th Avenue, before parting ways and continuing on it's journey. The first thing you will notice about Times Square is all the advertising. These are massive, and I mean massive, electronic boards hanging from the building's facades all around the area. They advertise everything from cars to Coke. When we ... Read the complete review

This is the most exciting part of New York. The part that you can't wait to see. You've seen it on so many films and TV programmes and can't wait to see it in real life. And yes, it is just as amazing in the flesh. This was the first proper sightseeing part of our trip we did and as soon as we caught a glimpse of it, it was like, wow we're in New York. You can see it from way up the street where our hotel was and as we gradually became closer and closer to it, we could feel our hearts beating faster and faster, our smiles getting bigger and bigger and the spring in our step getting more and more bouncy with excitement. The main attraction is all ... Read the complete review

Here's another review regarding my visit to New York and just like all the others it was an amazing place to visit! We stumbled acroos Times Square while looking for a nice restaurant to eat in and it was awasome as I turned around and was stunned by the dazzling birhgt lights of Times Square! It is like nothing you have ever seen before as every single shop and restaurant has huge neon signs flashing above them as well as the massive billboards advertising films and shows on Broadway. One thing I realised while being here is that it is a lot bigger then what I thought as Time Sqaure splits between two sides of buildings and then join back up at the ... Read the complete review

I've been lucky enough to visit New York a couple of times and consider myself even luckier that I'm due to go back at the end of this year (2009) to celebrate New Year. We loved Times Square so much that on our second trip back to New York we stayed in the Renaissance Times Square (Marriott) as we wanted to be right in the centre of the "buzz". We certainly were! You step out of the hotel and you are immediately wowed by all the bright lights and noise. No matter how many times I seem to stop and stare, I still feel overwhelmed. I did often just stop and wonder how many light bulbs are on the signs and what sky high prices the ... Read the complete review
