18 Jan Times Square at Night in New York City
Times Square is bright. Really really bright.
And I was drawn to the neon lights of Times Square at night like a moth to a flame.
When I think of New York City there are a few iconic images that spring to mind…the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge…but I mainly think of those illuminated signs in Times Square.
Yes it may be ridiculously tacky, but Times Square at night is a great place to people watch and experiment with taking photos. It’s chaotic, it’s hectic and you kind of need sunglasses to go anywhere near it, but those glaring billboards just keep on pulling you in. Walking through Times Square after dark is an assault on the senses and there is so much going on that it’s difficult to know quite where to look! It’s most certainly one of the best things to do in NYC whatever time of day you visit, but night time is something special.
