Times Square Review
Hands down, this is the most frenetic part of New York City, a cacophony of flashing lights and shoulder-to-shoulder crowds that many New Yorkers studiously avoid. Originally named after the New York Times (whose headquarters have relocated nearby), the area has seen many changes since the first subway line, which included a 42nd street station, opened in 1904. You won't find speakeasies and unsavory clubs around here nowadays, it's more of a vibrant, family friendly destination, with a pedestrianized stretch of Broadway and stadium seating behind discount theater ticket seller TKTS, all under the glare of brand names like MTV and M&Ms. If you like sensory overload, the chaotic mix of huge underwear billboards, flashing digital displays, on-location television broadcasts, naked cowboys, and Elmo clones will give you your fix. The focus of the entertainment may have shifted over the years, but showtime is still the heart of New York's theater scene and there are forty Broadway theaters nearby.
