You don't have to put anything in the title, bro. Hardly anyone does. I mean, do what you will. I'm just saying, it's not necessary to put anything in there. Just leave it blank. It takes even less thought and energy IMO.


"Quick Reply" at the bottom is a great function.

I like the Regal Cinema at Times Square. Best movie theater I've been to.

You're facing precisely 180 degrees in the wrong direction. Las Vegas is a poor imitation of Times Square.

Good grief. It's a TOURIST attraction!!!! It generates money for NYC.

Rarely do people who live outside TS and the outer boroughs go there unless it's to see a play - because there are too many tourists!!!

What city doesn't have a "tourist" attraction that the locals look to avoid??

Las vegas is times square on a grand scale.

Nah, I wouldn't compare it to Vegas. I like Vegas, especially the fine dining scene- then there's gambling and the Mandarin Spa (times square can't compare to any of that). I prefer the way Times Square was back in the 70's, but that's just the two cents of a native.

It's a tourist rip off spot. NY'ers don't really go there.

I have no problems with it though.
I do Times Square for theater a lot. But that does not stop my hating the Disneyfaction of the area.
I expect eventually to come across a homeless guy sleeping under a tarp that proclaims THE LION KING!

Thirty or forty years ago Times Square may have frightened the tourists but it was a far more interesting place. Now it seems like overcrowded plastic that belongs in Anaheim.
