Fittingly known as "The Great White Way," Times Square NYC is the only neighborhood in New York City where businesses are required by law to display lighted signs. Here, in the heart of Manhattan, you will find many of the most popular attractions in NYC and New York hotels, including ABC's Times Square Studios (where Good Morning America is filmed) and the famous NASDAQ sign.

A popular tourist attraction for over 100 years, Times Square NYC is always packed with people. Because of the thick crowds, it's easy to get lost or separated from your group. That's why we recommend studying our map of Times Square, below. Familiarize yourself with the area before you go venturing out into the crowds. If you're traveling with a group, decide on an emergency meeting place. Having done all this, you'll be able to navigate the streets of New York with confidence.
