No one can say that they’ve really seen New York City until they’ve seen Times Square. The towering skyscrapers, the colorful billboards, and the famous screen over which the ball drops on New Year’s Eve are some of the city’s most famous landmarks.
So hop on the ferry, and let’s take a tour of one of New York’s most famous places!
Times Square bills itself as the home of Broadway, and it’s true that you can see some of the world’s finest theater along the Great White Way here.
Times Square is also the home of the famous discount ticket booth, where you can get amazing deals on some of New York’s hottest shows.
Located at 234 W 42nd St., Madame Tussauds contains incredibly – sometimes unnervingly – realistic wax sculptures of over 200 actors, musicians, and superheroes.
While Madame Tussauds can be a lot of fun, make sure you don’t go there if you have a fear of dolls.
A Taste of Times Square
Act fast! On June 2nd, 2014, from 5-9pm, on 46th St. between Broadway and 9th Ave., Times Square’s myriad restaurants are practically giving away dishes during this festival. Admission is free, and dishes range from $1-6.
A Square with Many Facets
Times Square is filled with exciting events and attractions – the ones listed are only a small smattering of what you’ll get if you go. Centered on the junction of Broadway and 7th Ave., and spanning the area from W 42nd to W 47th Streets, Times Square is a must-see destination.
