“An evolving street connecting all”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

This place is amazing as an avenue to all types of interests from the Un on the east side to the docks on the west side. it goes through the theatre district, hotels, major transit hubs with a myriad of people crossing through. It is a cross section of manhattan

“Lights and open till late.”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Just on the edge of Times Square, 42nd Street has all the lights as well. There are some iconic stores as well as shows and museums. Most of these stay open until midnight, so if you are out late they should still be open.

“It's come a long way since the 80's”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Gone are the days when you walked on 42nd street and heard things like " Cheeba", " I got smoke", or "you want a lady friend?". The arcades are gone. The XXX rated shops are gone ( moved over one avenue) and the thugs are gone. Heck.. There is a police station right there! This is a tourist attrction now! I was in awe and I an a New Yorker born and raised! I have served in the military for the past 31 years and have not had the chance to get back to 42nd street.. It has changed so much.. but.. it has changed for the better! You will have a great time!

“Great !”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Just like Times Square, it's crowded but extremely vibrant ! Stores, restaurants and nice street art to see.
Dave and Busters is there, I would recommend going in for some fun and food :-)
