7 Things You Need to Do in Times Square
People come from all around the world to see this famous intersection. Whether it’s New Year’s Eve or any other day of the year, Times Square is always alive with a mesmerizing hum of voices and nearby street traffic. Vendors sell everything from hot dogs and knick-knacks to t-shirts and jewelry, and massive video billboards compete with brightly colored print advertisements. You’ll truly feel like you’re in “The Crossroads of the World”!
Here are some top tips from our staff on things to do in Times Square:
1) “Have breakfast at Ellen’s Stardust Diner – the ‘best free show on Broadway’.” It’s a little-known fact to tourists, but this 1950s-style eatery features a singing wait staff and tons of fun! (We recommend stopping by for breakfast to start your morning off right.)
2) “Ride the Ferris wheel inside Toys“R”Us." Do something just for the kids! Bring them to this 110,000 square-foot flagship store to ride the 60-foot Ferris wheel, play in a huge Barbie® dollhouse, and see what a T-Rex really looked like up close.
3) “Avoid the rain so you can see more street performers.” One of the most interesting things about Times Square is its many amateur street entertainers. Plan to visit on a sunny day – many costumed performers tend to stay indoors when it’s drizzling or raining.
4) “Be patient at mealtimes.” Although eating in this area won’t cost much more than in other parts of the city, you’ll find that the wait times are definitely longer. Plan to eat your meals early, or factor in at least an hour wait in addition to serving time, just to be safe.
5) “Eat lunch or dinner at Carmine’s or John’s Pizzeria.” These restaurants make us wish we were Italian! The first offers family-style dishes served in filling portions, while the pizzeria serves up fresh, authentic New York-style pizza.
6) “Compare prices when shopping for souvenirs.” If you’re looking for a knick-knack to bring home, we suggest comparing prices among the vendors in this area. Most places carry similar items and you can generally save about 25% by taking the time to shop around.
7) “Get discounted show tickets at TKTS.” Check out the TKTS booth for discounts of up to 50% on tickets to Broadway and off-Broadway productions. Don’t let the long line fool you – it actually moves quite fast. (Or, skip the line altogether at the South Street Seaport TKTS location.)
