Dear world. I am a native New Yorker and long term West Side resident, but I still feel like a tourist every time I am here. I come here a lot to see Broadway plays and Movies, but other than that I try to avoid.

Thank Neil W

It was magical. When your in Time Square it is so much bigger and full of life. So colorful. The advertising signs were huge. It was very exciting for the 6 of us.

The square is greatoads to look for. Sit on the steps and look for yourself on the screen.
Look around for the characters.. naked cowboy, naked cow girls and other characters.
Shops are expensive but it is time sqaure, so pay if you want. Atmosphere is something you dont get anywhere else, everyone is friendly but as always there is always one.
Visit it and soak in, views, advertising boards, music, go in and visit the big name shops.
I enjoyed it a few times

If you can't make it to The Bronx Zoo, then go on down to Times Square. People-watching at Times Square can't be beat.
