Owner description: The Official NYC Information Center in Times Square provides visitors with guides, maps, pamphlets, brochures, coupons and discounts pertaining to all there is to do and see in the City, with a bilingual staff available for further guidance. Located on Broadway Plaza between 44th and 45th Streets, the center is convenient to many Midtown attractions, and it is also at the intersection of many subway stops, enabling you to hop on a train and head just about anywhere after picking up all the info you need about the five boroughs.

Having been born and bred in Long Island City, Queens, New York -- 40 years worth -- I don't know that I ever visited the New York City's Official Visitor Information Center. However, I loved growing up in NYC; went to high school in Brooklyn and College in uptown Manhattan. I then worked on Madison Avenue for many years. My favorite time in NYC is between Thanksgiving (go to Central Park and watch the balloons being filled up for the Thanksgiving Day parade) and Christmas, when the city is glowing like a Christmas tree.

What is there not to love about NYC? The museums are the best in the country, and some of the best in the world. The Statue of Liberty and Freedom Tower are very poignant reminders of who we are. The tango show at the Tango House was excellent, and as professional as those I've seen in Buenos Aires.

THis is a good place to get information. They also have free bathrooms, air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter.

Would be far better to have info officers on the main streets and intersections so they are visible and helpful
