Always full of action, this is the beating heart of Manhattan.
Located at the intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue at 42nd Street, the square long ago became the city's premier theater district, with its bright electric lights winning it the nickname "the Great White Way." Today those marquees are joined by massive digital billboards with their dazzling, ever-changing colors. Day and night, hordes of tourists, street performers, taxi cabs and flashing cameras bombard the senses. Rather than maneuver through the crowds, pick one spot (like the famous red stairs) and simply enjoy the view. Don't worry about missing anything — Times Square comes to you.
