For a great place to find events and what's happening in the Big Apple, pay a visit to the Times Square Visitor Information Center. Located in the heart of Times Square (in the beautifully-restored landmark Embassy Movie Theatre on 7th Avenue, between 46th and 47th Streets), the Center is a most informative destination. Open every day from 8AM to 8PM.
You can purchase books, get money from an ATM, pick up maps of the city, get tickets to a Broadway show, buy souvenirs--even use the free internet connection to catch up with friends and family.
Want more information? Join the Times Square Alliance every Friday at noon for "Times Square Exposé" a free, behind-the-scenes walking tour of Times Square. You'll visit historic theatres, new sites, and the best of the neighborhood during a walking tour through what's come to be known as the Crossroads of the World. The tour leaves, rain or shine, every Friday at noon from the Information Center.
And just in case you WANT to visit Times Square on New Year's Eve, the site has a wealth of information to make your trip memorable and safe.
