Driving Around Times Square

Times Square spans several blocks between 42nd and 47th Streets, so expect heavy traffic and congestion throughout the area. Avoid driving through if possible, especially during peak hours. With thick crowds on the sidewalks, drive slowly and be vigilant for pedestrians crossing. Obey traffic directors and signals. Several main thoroughfares intersect Times Square, including 7th Ave, Broadway, and 42nd Street. Know where you need to turn ahead of time. The area is very walkable, so might be best to avoid driving through the heart of Times Square where possible. Consider parking further away.

Parking in Times Square

On-street parking is extremely limited and metered. Expect to pay up to $5 for 15-20 minutes. Parking garages are plentiful but often range between $40-$50 for just a few hours. Popular garages include Times Square Parking (717 7th Ave) and Icon Parking (251 W 50th St). For more affordable rates, look for garages a few blocks away from the center of Times Square, like Central Parking (358 W 51st St). Try parking apps like SpotHero to reserve spots in advance at discounted rates. Lock in your spot and avoid circling for parking. Staying at a hotel in the area? Check with your hotel if they offer parking and ask if they offer guests a discounted rate.
