Times Square is recognizable by the unmistakeable glow of artificial light that emanates from the square, with huge, larger-than-life moving advertisements and screens that are constantly changing from one colorful depiction to another, or 3D renderings of the latest it-girl endorsing a product. Whatever it is, the lights form a kind of magical, hyper-commercialized mecca of tourism, and in the busy months it seems that the sidewalks are literally swarmed with human bodies at all hours of the day. But don’t let this deter you, Times Square is truly the center of the universe, and it’s something you can’t miss seeing when you visit New York. It’s nice in Small Doses, so maybe plan to take a walk through Times Square and stop at your leisure, but planning a trip to a restaurant or shopping at a store in this epicenter of activity can prove stressful. Luckily, there are many things in Times Square that are nice enough just to look at. The huge them restaurants have great, animated facades and the Flagship stores, like the Hershey Store or the Toys R Us, are really just monster versions of themselves and it’s good enough to just stand in the doorway and look up at the giant versions of everything.
