If you are planning a trip to NYC, here are the MUST-see spots in the city... the Brooklyn Bridge, Broadway, the Upper East Side, Central Park.... and, most definitely, TIMES SQUARE! It is a major cultural and commercial intersection in central Manhattan at the junction of Broadway and 7th Avenue.
The brightly lit ads on the buildings make Times Square a really famous spot, attracting millions of people from different backgrounds.
The cost of one of those ads is between US$1.1 million to 4 million per year!
You can get fascinated by all those videos, photos, lights: everywhere at the same time! Definitely it is a MUST to go and a great opportunity to check all that is new in show business.
Besides the central spot in the city, Times Square is filled with New York's great attractions: Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, the Hard Rock Cafe, famous Broadway theaters, The Red Stairs, many stores and child-friendly places.
