As far as city districts go, Times Square—New York’s busiest attraction—is a global legend. Rightfully so, since it’s the cinematic epicenter of NYC tourism, including the best Broadway shows and photo opportunities with The Naked Cowboy (yee-haw). Its fabled days of epic squalor are a distant memory, but there's still plenty of spectacle to appreciate, 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.
