"A Crowded, Noisy, Gritty Extension of Times Square"

The construction NEVER stops in this ever changing neighborhood. 40 to 60 story rental buildings keep popping up in this already over crowded neighborhood. Add to that the growing stream of tourists overflowing from Times Square. There are a handful of good restaurants but most are average - when 80% of your business comes from tourists you don't really need to worry about making a lasting impression for repeat business. This isn't a neighborhood, it's a theme park.

And let's not forget the shady characters hanging around the Port Authority. I've had 3 physical altercations in my 9-years here.
  • Many diverse restaurants along 9th avenue
  • The Flea Market on 39th street between 9th and 10th avenues
  • Noise
  • Crowded
  • Dirty
  • dingy apartments
  • crime rates
  • terrible grocery stores
