    After a night on the streets of midtown, “as the light strengthened, the dreariness and the harshness of the Square became a palpable thing,” Morris Markey wrote in 1934. Read more

    In the summer this place is hotter than hell. Seriously.

    About 70 colorful mosaics of life-size figures blowing party horns and wearing party hats like the revelers in Times Square's New Year's Eve celebration comprise the subway permanent art installation

    There are a TON of Times Sq subway entrances in the area. Ask your hotel concierge for the nearest subway entrance.

    On the south end of the downtown 1/2/3 platform you can get pretty decent cell coverage.

    “I've written more songs in the NYC subway system than anyplace else in the world. A little climb down a few dirty concrete steps supplies endless musical inspiration.” —Gavin Creel, American Songbook

  • Dave S.

    The (S) is a remnant of the first subway, which ran up the east side from City Hall (today's 4,5,6), then across town (shuttle), and then up the west side (1,2,3)!

    Dave S. · January 19, 2011
  • Hector T.

    Cell coverage (and to check in of course) can be found by the second staircase for the 7, towards the A/C/E train tunnel.

    Hector T. · November 20, 2010

    NYC's subways has been stormed by the Lizard. Keep your eyes peeled when pulling into the Times Square/42nd Street station to see if you can catch this villainous mutant lurking within the tunnels.

    Use 41 & 7 avenue entrance. Less crowded/congested than main entrance

    Going to/from Port Auth but don't need to transfer trains sometimes it's just faster/better to walk outside than via the underground passageway.

    On the Uptown E platform, listen to this old African American (blues ?) singer. The best voice I've heard in the subway. He makes you want to miss and wait for the next train.

    This is the subway station you can catch almost every line of service and also getting off you get to come up to the Amazing Times Square

    Beware, the steep not-wheelchair-accessible ramps can be slippery in certain shoes even when dry. Watch your step.

    Making NYC Your Gym is as easy as getting off the subway a stop early. Get off at Times Square and walk the rest of the way to work/home/school. More on Making NYC Your Gym:

    Breathe deeply, grab your bags tightly, + walk faster than you ever have before. Lol! That's IF you can get through the turnstile w/o issues. Walk to the Port Authority Bus Station for A/C/E trains.

    If you want the A/C/E -- get it from Port Authority. Otherwise you'll be walking all the way (back) there in horrendous underground conditions to catch your train.
