My first night in New York. I was surrounded by thousands of people I didn't know, thousands of miles from anyone I did - And yet completely and utterly at home sat on the steps of Times Square, just stopping to soak in my surroundings.  A little piece of pure heaven.

So many billboards, so many stores, so many foodstands - and everything was weirdly quiet in a way. I'll never forget my first impression of Times Square. I asked my best friend "How am I supposed to go through all those people?". Because Times Square was crowded as fuck.

But then one night when we were out, we walked by and there was only 2 people on Times Square. That was a rare sight.

Really cool to see! :)  In our time there, there was an attempted terrorist attack on the Minskoff theatre on 1 may 2010. Luckily he did not succeed!

As a New Jerseyite Times Square was a jump, hop, & skip away. If you can look past the tourists and enjoy the yummy street food Times Square can actually be a fun place.

This was in 2013. My husband and I were here visiting my older brother and his wife, who just moved there. It was a big family vacation, with my parents, two brothers, my husband, and my sister-in-law. We stayed there for 5 days. It was the best trip I have ever gone on.

Absolutely amazing! After shopping and get a makeover in MAC (shoutout to Sam) I bumped into Actor Gerard Butler. I loved it. Plus I was staying two blocks outside Times Square.

Before -

Being a spider man fan, I have always loved New York and for some reason Times Square. I just wanna go there, close my eyes  and tell the 10 years old spidey fan that- "Look! There comes spider man!!"

After -

Well... how do you start to express a dream when it comes true. I am a true believer that we all are voracious beings, nothing can keep us satiated for long, no matter how much we get. But, as we saw in "The pursuit of Happyness", Will Smith said- "That one moment was happiness". I don't know if it was my excitement or the place was really as magical. New York has always been a glamorous place, with it's people, history, and mentions in hollywood. Since the moment I stepped in the place, I was looking at everything as if it's fascinating. Comparing every street, every corner, person with those I was seeing since my childhood in movies. They were exactly the same - the streets were bustling with life, energy, and chaos. Everyone was in some hurry to reach somewhere. There was a story in everyone's eyes. These were people who had a dream when they decided to come to the city, no matter how big or small the dream was. Some of the eyes told stories of how they could almost see their dream come true, while some had given up on those dreams and could only look the world in a cynical, desperate view. I chose to keep my dream alive, live it all, the way I had always dreamed. 

Finally, I saw Time Square in all it's glory, spreading it's digital glow on each and every portion of the street and people, making the place glow as if it was a room lit by bright bulbs from all sides. Each light contributing it's own color and hue to the magic of the place. Adding to this light show was the party of people taking pictures, sharing the magnificence of that place with the world. It was the most lively place I had seen in my life yet. It felt like a nigh-club without roof filled with poeople and enthusiasm to live their lives in one night. It was crazy, awesome and alive. Standing there in the middle of all that light, people and frenzy, I talked with the child in me and told him- "We did it". Here, I felt that "Happyness", and promised myself to seek it throughout my life.

Visiting Time Square at night is nostalgic. I saw Chicago on Broadway too, such a lovely time! Would love to go back during Christmas!

 I went to Times Square. It was loud. It was crowded. It was commercialism. Wasn't impressed by New York at all.
