AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Go to Las Vegas today and you can spend an afternoon in New York or Big Apple-themed casino. Step into Times Square, especially at night, and you’ll quickly realize that New York has returned the favor. This “square” (which is really just the convergence of Seventh Avenue and Broadway) flashes and pops with enough lights to induce a seizure. But the square wasn’t always so bright. After the Depression, the area was the most dangerous part of town and in the 1980s the area's strip clubs and peeps show houses became infamous. All that’s gone now in the new Disney-fied version of the space, where mega-stores compete with fast-moving news tickers and flickering billboards for your attention. The latest development, though, is a good one: tables and chairs have replaced parts of the street, making Times Square a much more comfortable place to spend a couple hours.
