Day 1- Time Square


Taking the subway to Time square and Broadway.


I was surprised that the subway was pretty clean and they have air conditioned inside the train.

The subway is the cheapest way to get around and it is very convenient and fast.


Time Square

Times Square is a major commercial intersection in  Manhattan  at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Times Square, the most bustling square of New York is known for its many Broadway theatres, cinemas and super giant signs. It is one of those places that make New York a city that never sleeps.  At any given time of the day or night, Time Square is always full of people.

Time square is loud, colorful, with giants billboards and a sea of people.


It is a very lively place with tourists from all over the world.



Giants billboards every where...


The latest Brad Pitt's movie...



So colorful and fun.


Each year during the New Year’s Eve celebration a time ball made by Waterford and electric lights is raised to the top of a pole on the OneTimes Square building at 6:00 pm and then lowered to mark the coming of the New Year. The ball descends 77 feet over the course of a minute, coming to rest at the bottom of its pole at midnight, and a sign lights up with the digits of the new year, as the ball's lights turn off.




The Naked Cowboy.

Robert John Burck better known as the Naked Cowboy, is an American street performer whose pitch is on  Times Square. He wears only cowboy boots, a hat, and briefs, with a guitar strategically placed to give the illusion of nudity.

Most of the ladies take a picture with him and give him a tip.  I also see people grabbing his derriere!  He said he can make up to $1,000 on a day in the summer.

He is also dress this way in the winter... How he can handle the cold weather with nothing on is pretty impressive.

Monument of Father Francis Patrick Duffy (1871–1932) win time Square.

Duffy was an American soldier, Roman Catholic priest and chaplain. As the chaplain for the "Fighting 69th", he became the most highly decorated cleric in the history of the U.S. Army. Duffy Square, the northern half of Times Square, is named after him.
