Have you ever felt annoyed by the high concentration of people in Times Square? Your feelings are rational. Times Square has the most pedestrian traffic in all of New York City; 250,000 people work in Times Square alone. When you add to that the millions of tourists who visit New York each year, the area can see up to 363,000 pedestrians in one 24-hour period.
