Don't get stuck with the tourists on Times Square!
Here's how to avoid it

Read updates at the Times Square website

We made a google map: avoid the area in red, both on foot or by car/taxi. You can get in but you can't get out until next year! Also, don't drive anywhere close to it.

The best approach is
-from downtown: on foot or by subway A C E 1 2 3 Penn Station
-from the East Side: cross to the West Side through Central Park or points north, or near 34th Street or points south. DO NOT TAKE THE 42nd St Shuttle "S" or the 7 train
-from West Midtown: on foot
-from the Upper West Side: A C E 1 2 3
