  • Located just south of Central Park, in Midtown Manhattan,

  • Times Square is the hub of the New York Theatre District,

  • and one of the most iconic locales in the world.

  • Originally Longacre Square, the name Times Square was coined

  • after the relocation of the New York Times to 42nd Street in 1904.

  • Just weeks later, the first electrified commercial appeared,

  • leading to the instantly recognisable wall-to-wall billboards of today.

  • By day, Times Square is a bustling business hub,

  • but there are still plenty of things to see and do.

  • Some of the more well-known shops include M&M's World

  • and the giant 215-foot-tall Hershey's store.

  • The centre of Times Square is a traffic-free plaza

  • where visitors can sit on one of the many multicoloured chairs

  • and watch the world go by.

  • After sundown, Times Square transforms into a neon wonderland.

  • The hundreds of illuminated billboards light the way to the Theatre district,

  • which has been selling tickets to plays and musicals since the 18th century.
