Located just a few blocks from the WJ Hotel, you'll find the dazzling lights, dining, shopping, and interesting characters that make Times Square so unique.
Stroll through Times Square to pick up NYC-themed souvenirs or shop the flagship stores, check out the pop-up shops and street performers, or spend some time people-watching in the pedestrian plaza.
