New York at Night ..

New York certainly lives up to its reputation of the city that never sleeps. As the sun sets the city comes alive with lights and nowhere is more prolific than the bright lights of Broadway. Broadway crosses diagonally through Times Square, which is filled with bill boards and animated lights showcasing the latest movies, adverts and theatrical offerings, you really do feel like you are standing in the middle of a movie.

As you can see whilst I was there,  Homeland, Les Miserables and The Arrow (featuring the delicious Henry Cavill) where highlights in Times Square.
I usually try to book a theatre event prior to any visit to NY and this time I booked for the Wednesday night to see The Heiress . Starring Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens and Zero Dark Thirty's Jessica Chastain . I enjoyed the play, it was a little hard going in places but Showcased the small ensembles talents considerably.

Day or night Times square is always a thronged with tourists which has become easier over the last few years since they pedestrianised half of the area, it has lots of family friendly places to visit, including a 5 story M&M mecca and Hershey store, along with a huge Toys-r-us complete with indoor ferris wheel.
