    It's a tourist trap. Most natives avoid it like the plague.

    Times Square is wonderful. I love it. I liked it before the improvements and after. I've two old friends who work there, one in theater, one in an office and also a cousin near there with his own office building. I can wander around there for hours and find it fascinating.

    Love the view down onto Times Sq from my friend's office, will see if I have a photo of that on this puter; and just about a month or two after 9/11, I took mom into the city to pay respects at the tower site and then we made our way up to Times Sq to take our friend to dinner.

    Memories of the makeshift memorials in the Time Sq subway station still affect me, it was so moving. We stayed down there for quite a while. I'll see if those pics are on this puter too and post if I find them.

    okay, well, didn't find the shot I was thinking of, looking down onto Time Square from right above it; bummer, it's a cool shot. But I think these are the 9/11 pics from the Times Square subway station.

    I don't recall the exact date--I could look that up-- but those are taken so soon after 9/11 that when we were at the tower site it was still on fire. Unbelievably moving to us. And I remember my friend who would not go to visit the towers' remains, how visibly shaken she still was during dinner that night.

    What I remember especially being so jolting was how sad was the subway station but then we walked out into the light of Times Square and life there continued. The show must go on.
