I am very much a night person, so for me a lit up Times Square was just, wow.
The huge neon signs, the brightly lit, ever changing adverts on the big screens, the tourists with bags of shopping and camera flashes constantly going off, right down to the Disney characters and NYPD officers roaming around – nothing said New York more!
The first time I saw Times Square, it was surreal. Only in the big movies did I believe this place to be real. I have to say, it was smaller than I thought, but no less jaw dropping!! It is the heart of the city, with an electric current pulsing through, keeping it alive! There is a fantastic, excited energy in Times Square at night, an energy that out unfortunately lived ours!
