Times Square in NYC—New York’s crowded attraction—is a global icon in its own right. It’s the "center of the world" and the epicenter of NYC tourism with the best Broadway shows and photo opportunities with The Naked Cowboy and even those creepy mascots. Its fabled days of grime and crime are a distant memory, thankfully, but it still has much to experience, especially during the holiday season. Some of the biggest NYC events in December take place in Times Square (i.e. New Year’s Eve). And while locals may disagree, it’s the home to some of the best restaurants in NYC. Check out our guide to find out about this iconic New York landmark’s past, present and future.
