Times Square is the epicenter of New York excitement. Surrounded by neon lights, giant billboards, Broadway theaters, electronic ticker tape and television studios, Times Square is the hustling, bustling heart of Midtown. The recently reopened TKTS Discount Booth (where theater tickets are sold at up to 50% off face value) is topped with a giant red staircase, open to visitors daily until 1am. Walk to the top of the steps and you'll be rewarded with a sweeping view of the area, including the site of the annual New Year's Eve Ball Drop. Take a break in one of the new pedestrian-only zones furnished with tables and chairs, perfect for people-watching. For more information, visit timessquarenyc.org.
