Times Square New York City

Times Square New York City

Times Square, one of New York City’s premier tourist destinations, is located on a major intersection in Midtown Manhattan–at the junction of Broadway and 27th Street and from West 42nd Street to West 47th Street. It occupies the blocks between 6th and 8th Avenues from east to west, and West 40th and West 53rd Streets from north to south.
