Times Square is returning to its original form. Crazy busy. The smell of acrid charcoal and lighter fluid from street food vendors. Someone shouting “Who wants drugs?” as they walk by. The overly aggressive discount mascots pushing for photos.

All the times I went to New York at my former employer, and I never visited Times Square. Mainly because I went a decade or so earlier and had a very similar experience to what you just did. Hope the rest of your NYC trip has more pleasant experiences! Get some good ramen, dumplings, big gay ice cream, and milk desserts since I currently can't 😭
