Times Square is one of the safest and most recognized regions in Manhattan.

Times Square is a well known attraction in New York City. It is the site of the annual New Year's Eve ball drop, and is a commercial center, home to many shops and attractions. It is located at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue, and stretches from West 42nd to West 47th Streets.

The area consists of the blocks between Sixth and Eighth Avenues going east to west, and West 40th and West 53rd Streets going south to north. The extended Times Square area is also known as the Theatre District, and makes up the western part of Midtown Manhattan.

Times Square has changed a lot over the past few decades. While it was once known as one of the seedier spots in Manhattan, it has changed over the years into one of Manhattan's most popular tourist destinations. What was once considered a dangerous area in Manhattan has now become one of the safest and most recognized Manhattan regions, and it has become a safe place for families to enjoy.

The Restaurants in Times Square range from fast and cheap eats to exquisite food and formal dining. These NYC restaurants target a wide range of audiences since Times Square attracts a wide audience.

New Years Eve in Times Square

New Years Eve in Times Square

The Restaurants in Times Square range from fast and cheap eats to exquisite food and formal dining

It's no surprise that Times Square, with its large television display, bright lights, and popular tourist stops, is a big spectacle during holidays.

New Years is by far the most popular holiday in Times Square. It is like a giant block party out on the streets of Times Square, and it lasts late into the night. Expect elbow-to-elbow crowds, lots of excitement in the air, and a ton of confetti once the ball drops for the new year in Times Square.

If you plan to visit Times Square on New Years Eve, then be prepared.

Be sure to wear warm clothing. It gets really cold at night in New York City during the winter months and you will start feeling numb if you do not bundle up appropriately for the long night.

Also, make sure you get to Times Square early. Very early. The entire area will be closed down to traffic, so you will need a plan to get in and out of Times Square when you are finished partying it up on New Years eve.

The most important thing to do on New Years Eve in Times Square, of course, is to have fun! It is one of the biggest New Years parties in the United States and will be an unforgettable night.
