The area where you can feel the spirit of the city, touch its traditions and history. The place was named thanks to the newspaper The New York Times, which housed its office here back in 1904. Times Square is a territory where famous shops, movie theaters, restaurants (including the legendary Hard Rock Cafe), and music halls are located. The area is full of people 24 hours a day.

You get to see all the lights and crowds of people, as well as go to shows and shop. On weekdays, it seemed like things were a little less expensive.

If you want to experience it, I recommend going on a Friday or Saturday night. The crowds are larger, the shows have their A list actors but are more expensive, and the street performers will all but push you into a photo and then tell you its $20.

To purchase tickets Broadway tickets, always compare prices between the TCKTS Booth (at the middle) vs. from the theatre itself. Be wary of those marketing cheap tickets (they don't match sometimes).
There are small restaurants found along in nearby alleys/streets that offer good food. These are cheaper than the ones found near Times square.
Lots of people keep looking up when they get amazed by the lights and sounds. Don't forget to look down as some tourists also step on gum, spilled drinks, and food.
