Crossroads of the World

Times Square, nicknamed "the crossroads of the world," is a major commercial area in New York. Setting foot in the area - located at the intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue - for the first time is an overwhelming experience - with the senses being overloaded with a cacophony of sounds and countless lights and advertisements.

Aside from hosting a number of stores - Macy's is the biggest in the area (and biggest store in the world) - Times Square is also home to the theaters of Broadway.

Times Square is also the location where the New Year's Ball is drop during the New Year celebration.
