  • This is a wonderful place to meet friends and watch people. Tram stop right at it. Don't miss the customs museum on the west (?) side if you are an international travel. 
  • Two and a half year old child is delighted, too, at time square water great or just square, spouting plumes around one side or smoke from where you can enjoy. The appearance of the building projected in the State put the water in the evening, and mirror-like surface of the water so fantastic.
