A Block That Looks as It Did About 1930

29 Apr

I am absolutely obsessed with this blog: http://www.scoutingny.com. I cannot seem to stop reading it. Written by a film location scout, he scours the city finding obscure architecture, Manhattan oddities, and seriously makes me want to get out on foot for days and look up.

When I was about on page 6 of his posts, I ran into an article about a street in Manhattan that still resembles its 1930s decade of life. Following that link to NYTimes.com, I came upon a nice article. Check it out…..or maybe get out and finally see it as more than a street to get you where you’re going.

WEST 46TH STREET between Fifth Avenue and the Avenue of the Americas.
