Crazy but worth seeing
May 2021
I recommend going earlier in the day because it gets a bit crazy after dark. I went for the Midnight Moment and a fight broke out. Two guys jumped another and knocked him out cold. I tried to identify his assailants to 4 different officers and none of them would even listen nor look at the pictures I took. So just because there is a heavy police presence you are on your own. When he came to they treated him terribly like he was the criminal. I was so disgusted by these officers I gave up and went back to my room.
There are tons of people there hustling. Drunk people trying to start fights. And homeless people everywhere. I recommend not making eye contact with anyone. If they approach you say, “no English” then pick an uncommon language like Turkish if they start speaking Spanish. Cash is king to most of the vendors.
I would still visit because it is iconic but don’t stay long.

Crowded and trash strewn as always, but it is always great just to be there and see all the different walks of life that exist there.

We love Times Square for 1 thing......Broadway shows. However, it is very crowded with tons of cheesy tourist spots- Hershey Store, Krispy Kreme Donuts shop, Yankees Store, Madaam Toussods, etc. Always is something going on here

COME ON NYC!!
May 2021
This place is only safe in the morning and early afternoon. What is the leadership of NY thinking, letting the heartbeat of the city fall into such squalor. Kudos to the businesses there trying to make the best of a terrible situation. Will not stay in TS again.

Too much good word out
Apr 2021 • Family
People have been putting too much good word out for Times Square. Let us tell you, this place is litter, in all sense. Litter of NY. Filthy. Somewhere else to go for better NY experience.
