So to our surprise Times Square is a commercial location!! It is kind of amazing that through the day, we had some free time to kind of do what we wanted within reason. So shopping was a biggy for the girls. We were amazed by the racks of clothes being wheeled down the street...and the crowds...and the noise! Thrilling for some...not so much for others...ME! It was exciting, but still, being the shy country chick, it was not my favorite thing!!
