Feel Luxury in the Heart of Times Square
There's no place more iconic than Times Square: the urban pulse of neon flashing, yellow taxis honking, 300,000 human beings filling the streets every single day. Times Square is thrilling. It's electric. It's alive. And it's less than a mile from our front door.
So take a selfie at one of the world's most famous intersections; shop till you drop a significant amount of cash; sip martinis in a jazz club. And don't forget that little thing called Broadway, in the heart of the Theater District or the new interactive Museum of Broadway. Times Square gives you full permission to get your tourist on. We won't judge. If you do want some insider tips, just ask. (Here's one: visit Drama Book Shop, a bookstore devoted to the dramatic arts and so important to the theater community that it actually won its own Tony award.)
Insider Tips for Exploring Times Square
- Timing - Times Square is always bustling, but it's generally less crowded early in the morning or late at night. Consider visiting during these times to enjoy a relatively calmer atmosphere and better photo opportunities.
- Hidden Gems - While the main square is captivating, don't forget to explore the surrounding areas. Check out the TKTS Booth for discounted Broadway show tickets, visit the nearby Bryant Park for a serene escape, or explore the vibrant shops and eateries on Restaurant Row along West 46th Street.
- Be cautious with street performers and costumed characters - Times Square is often populated with street performers and costumed characters looking for tips in exchange for photos. Exercise caution and only engage with those you feel comfortable interacting with.
- Explore nearby theaters and attractions - Times Square is surrounded by iconic theaters like the Broadway Theater District. Consider catching a live show or exploring nearby attractions like the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum or Madame Tussauds New York.
