Walk to Times Square

East of Ink 48 lies Times Square, one of New York City's most visited and iconic attractions. Named after the New York Times, whose headquarters once towered above, Times Square is formed by the intersection of 42nd Street, Broadway and Seventh Avenue. A recognizable landmark throughout the world, Times Square’s sprawling skyscrapers and glittering city lights and billboards have become synonymous with the late-night glamour and epic mythology of New York City. 

Known as the Crossroads of the World and the “Center of the Entertainment Universe," Times Square draws an estimated 50 million people a year, with 300,000 to 400,000 people passing through this tourist hotspot an average day! A million spectators gather every year to watch the ball drop on New Year's Eve. Tourist attractions include Broadway shows, Restaurant Row and chains like the Hard Rock Cafe and M&M'S World. (Check out TKTS' reduced price ticket booth for same-day tickets.) You also can catch a colorful, sometimes disruptive stream of street performers, sketch artists and costumed characters who will entertain, draw your profile, or pose with you (for a fee). 

In the city that never sleeps, Times Square feels even more awake than most neighborhoods –and it's just blocks away from Ink 48 Hotel!
