Times Square, Manhattan: Flashy Neon Lights and World-Class Culture
Times Square is at the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. The famous address—affectionately known as “the Crossroads of the World”—is home to hypnotizing billboards, giant wraparound news tickers, and the neon lights of Broadway. Beyond the glitz and gimmicks, there are a number of cultural offerings in the area, ranging from museums to Michelin-rated restaurants. Buildings of historical and architectural interest include the Paramount Building and One Times Square, site of the annual New Year’s Eve ball drop.
Nearby, the Museum of Modern Art houses a trove of masterpieces including Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Claude Monet’s Water Lilies paintings, and Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans. Save time for a stroll through the museum’s outdoor sculpture garden, where installations are clustered around sparkling reflecting pools. About a mile north of Times Square, the David H. Koch Theater is home to one of the world’s foremost dance companies—the New York City Ballet, which stages contemporary works as well as classics like Swan Lake and The Nutcracker.
With tickets starting at $55, you can get your hands on some of the best seats to see the Radio City Rockettes in their Christmas Spectacular on November 11–January 1. Along with some old favorites—such as the magical "Snow" dance and the tip-tapping "12 Days of Christmas"—this year's lineup includes ice skaters elegantly gliding across the stage. The Yuletide cheer is also brought on by Vincente Minnelli's classic 1933 costumes, 3-D animated backdrops, and, of course, the troupe's trademark precision kicklines.
