Times Square is not truly a square. What is technically Times Square is the 4 quarters created where 7th Ave. and Broadway intersects in Midtown Manhattan. Nevertheless, most New Yorkers refer to the bigger area as Times Square, which stretches north as well as south from 40th St. to approximately 52nd St. and also east and west from 8th Ave to 6th Ave. The ”crossroads of the world” as it is known, is jam-packed with free entertainers as well.
Times Square is one of the best places to sit and watch the world rush past. Grab a seat in the pedestrian zone or sit on the well-known red TKTS steps. Hug your favorite Cartoon Character or say hi to the Statue of Liberty, say thanks to the super-heroes who keep the world safe! Bear in mind that these performers are not working for the city. They are working on tips.
