Times Square is often considered the heart of New York City. The bright lights, the tourist attractions, the Broadway shows, and the constant flow of foot traffic make it a central hub filled with action and people during all hours of the day (and night). With most major subway lines traversing it as well as Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal just a few blocks away, Times Square is a natural crossroads for people coming from just about anywhere. Its central location and 24/7 energy makes it an ideal location for corporate and social events. But Times Square's iconic status and convenience means that real estate -- including event space -- can have a hefty price tag in the area. However, if you know where to look, you can find some hidden gems that won't stretch your budget too much. If you’re looking to host a meeting, conference, or reception in or around Times Square but don't want to break the bank, simply post your event request on Revelr to hear back within minutes from the perfect venue for your event.
