The only time a New Yorker hits Times Square is when his/her cabby accidentally takes a wrong turn and ends up in gridlock on 7th Avenue. OK, maybe you had a meeting at the Conde Nast building on 42nd Street, or like me, lunch at The Lambs Club, but besides those chance ventures, I bet you avoid the square at all cost. Because it’s a zoo! But as the accidental tourist, I hiked up my pants, took a deep breath and braved the masses. And come on, when was the last time you got a hug from Elmo?
