Oh. My. God. Times Square would have to be one of my most favorite places on earth.
The energy is electric and it’s contagious. I feel it pulsating through my body…. Or that could just be a panic attack as I have a phobia of large crowds… But whatever it is, it’s an exhilarating feeling.
We have been there in both winter and summer and believe me, it doesn’t matter what time of year you go there is always an electric vibe.
Times Square is an intersection in midtown Manhattan, New York at the junction of Broadway and 7th Ave and is an entertainment mecca!
This famous intersection is all about glitz and glamour with every building lit up like a Christmas tree 24 hours a day. You will find a gazillion theaters here with all the famous shows such as Jersey Boys, Wicked, The Lion King and many more.
Times Square is also home to the Naked Cowboy! Yes you heard right, this fairly new icon of Time Square is a street performer wearing nothing more than cowboy boots and briefs with a strategically placed guitar to give the illusion of nudity… All in the name of a little fun!
Of course, this is also the site of the famous ball drop every new years eve. We have never been here for the ball drop but I hear, even though it’s packed like sardines, the buzz in the atmosphere is like nothing else on earth.
Have you been to Times Square? What are your thoughts? What would you suggest we do there on our next visit?
