New Year's Countdown — Times Square

Vintage Postcard of Times Squarecardcow.com

As we count down to 2008, I thought it would be fun to take a vintage look at a monumental timekeeper: Times Square. What a slice of history! Talk about saying bye-bye to bygone days! I have only visited Upstate New York. Have you been to Times Square?

I have been to Times Square but it was not at New Years... rather a young lady with the Girl Scouts.. yes... I did say that...it was during the Worlds Fair and that is where we stayed at a Motel...I remember hanging out the windows with my friends yelling at all the people below... it was quite an experience... especially since a couple of our freinds got robbed while we were out...

ahhh memories

I was in Times Square in October 2005. We took the subway in from eastern Long Island (that was an experience!) and just got off at Times Square without a plan. Lots of hustle & bustle, I can tell you! And the Macy's is fantastic - all 8 floors of it. My daughter and I each bought a beautiful winter coat for $50.00, marked down from $350.00. What a deal!

I've been to Times Square many times but you won't ever catch me there on New Year's Eve! All those people would make me very uncomfortable. Most New Year's eves you will find me at "couchville."
Happy New Year blogging friend, DebraK

Tomorrow we will be returning home from California and my daughter Kate will be spending New Years Eve in Times Square! Oh to be young! I have been there once and felt overwhelmed by the sheer number of buildings and people!!! But it is an exciting place!!!

Yes, I've been there, more than once, and once on New Year's Eve we ate at a most wonderful Italian restaurant in NYC called Carmella's. I will never forget it, it was so much fun. I Love New York City. I didn't stay late though, we were not there when the ball dropped at midnight.

I have never been to Times Square. I've barely been in NYC. I say barely because I've been at the airport several times, and also when I was staying with friends in NJ they drove us into Greenwich Village one night.
