Times Square is an experience of bright neon signs, camera toting tourists, yellow taxis, tourist buses as well as significant noise including the NYPD & ambulances screaming through at random times. This experience is all packed into several blocks along Broadway. If you want to have your mug in many photos or videos from travelers from around the world, the sidewalks of Broadway near Times Square would be a great place to station yourself. This is people watching at its best. Nights are filled with lights and in the heart of Times Square after sunset it is hard to tell it is even night-time.
This is also the hub for Broadway with a many theatres located on side streets off of this part of Broadway. Keep in mind that most theatres do not hold performances on Mondays (Dark Monday). Times Square is a great place for shopping either locally around Broadway or a few blocks away on the famous 5th Avenue.
