I live in NYC and walk in Times Square frequently. It is quite safe; there are many police officers. (I was pickpocketed in Amsterdam and Paris, never in NY).

Fun & relaxing are opposites. TS is great fun, not at all relaxing. There is a reason people from around the world come here.

In this case, I collapse "smart and beautiful" into "interesting," and Times Square is most certainly that.

Times Square has such a buzz, a really cool place to hang out, just watch out for pickpockets.
How would you improve it?
Stop the traffic completely!

7 Av is not pedestrian-friendly. The street is about 50 feet wide and so may be very difficult to cross. This area has very high levels of crime. The street lacks trees.
How would you improve it?
