Location Description:

Times Square attracts almost exclusively play-goers and tourists. On the narrow, side streets are a couple classic 150-year old theaters with imposing facades. But the hubafilled with Virgin Records, Toys R Us, sex shops and unmanagable throngs of peopleais a no-no for levelheaded New Yorkers.
