Top 20 Times Square, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Times Square, also commonly referred to as “The Crossroads of the World,” is one of New York’s most iconic destinations. Bright billboards and advertisements have been lighting up this corner of Manhattan since the late nineteenth century, when it was still known as Longacre Square. It was only after the New York Times moved its headquarters to 42nd Street and Broadway that it was renamed Times Square. It is one of the world’s busiest pedestrian areas, as well as the site of the annual New Year’s Eve Ball Drop, which started in 1907, and has been a tradition ever since. It is also at the heart of the Broadway Theatre District, which has bringing hit musicals and plays to millions of visitors for generations. Today, the streets are lined with shops and street entertainers, which will keep you busy for hours. Nearby you’ll also find beautiful Bryant Park, Madison Square Garden, Grand Central Station, and the infamous Empire State Building.
