As the cultural and commercial heart of New York City, Times Square has everything – from the iconic neon billboards, to family friendly restaurants, costumed street performers, glittery Broadway shows, and luxury apartments for rent.
Residents of Times Square call it the beating heart of the city, where you’ll find thousands of pedestrians, at any given time of the day. It’s the epicenter for entertainment, and also the scene of the famous New Year’s Eve ball drop.
You could spend hours in the neighborhood shopping, relaxing in Bryant Park, or visiting world famous attractions like Madame Tussauds.
The area is no longer as chaotic as it used to be; in 2016, the city decided to make things a little safer for residents, by designating special areas for relaxing, watching street performers, and express lanes for walking around.
Easy Access To Broadway
One of the best parts about living in – or around – Times Square, is easy access to all the Broadway shows that you would want to watch.
Known as the epicenter of the theater scene, Broadway has many original plays that have been running for years!
From the world famous Phantom of the Opera which has been running at the Majestic Theater for around 30 years, to the renowned Lion King at the Minksoff Theater – there is something for everyone here.
Located between 40th and 42nd Streets and 5th and 6th Avenues in Midtown Manhattan, Bryant Park is a popular attraction amongst locals and tourists alike. It’s famous for its colorful gardens, al fresco dining, excellent restrooms, a merry go round, outdoor reading room, and multiple family friendly activities.
Commonly referred to as Manhattan’s Town Square, this is the best place to hang out with your family on a weekend, or escape the crowds on main Times Square.
Bryant Park is also surrounded by Manhattan’s iconic skyscrapers, and the New York Public Library is also right next to the park.
