Times Square from the roof deck at 1600 Broadway (CORE Real Estate) Times Square from the roof deck at 1600 Broadway (CORE Real Estate)
Times Square is known for many things, but being a desirable place to live isn't one of them. In New York City, some of the tallest new skyscrapers are residential properties, but those near the world-famous intersection of Seventh Avenue and Broadway are nearly all hotels and office buildings sitting atop retail bases wrapped in billboards.

However, if you want to live near what some may call "the center of the universe," there are plenty of options out there. Mind the tourists, please.
