Times Square

Flashing neon lights and giant digital billboards. Brilliant Broadway marquees. Costumed characters and musicians. Times Square is big, bright and unforgettable. Its main junction is filled with popular retailers—plus the TKTS discount booth, which offers up to 50 percent off theater tickets. Walk to the top of its red steps—you may know them from the “Empire State of Mind” video—for a sweeping view of the area, including One Times Square, the building from which the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. People-watchers will love the pedestrian-only zones furnished with tables and chairs.

Times Square, also known as the crossroads of the world, encompasses 42nd to 47th Streets, from Broadway to Seventh Avenue—but people commonly refer to the area from around 40th to 53th Streets, between Sixth and Eighth Avenues, as Times Square.
