"Shop Till You Drop"

If you are into shopping, you will love Herald Square. At the corner of 34th St is Daffy's. It is incredible the number of department stores and little shops along the way. If you really want to spend money this is the area to be. There is a little bit of everything. You will even run into street vendors. Bring plenty of cash and/or your credit card. You will need it.
  • Plenty of stores
  • Plenty of restaurants
  • Mixed bag
  • Too busy at times
  • Too many people at times
  • Too loud of noise

"Take it or leave it"

I only come to this street if I need to buy beads to make some jewelry. There really isn't much to offer here, besides some basic accessory stores. The bead shops are great, and offer a lot of variety, particularly as you get closer to the fashion district. I have also run across some decent button and fabric stores here. The further East you go on 36th street, the closer you will get to Little Korea, which is fun, but further south. This area is not so great to live in, it is noisy and dirty and the apartment buildings do not look so well maintained. Also, at its furthest Western point, this street coincides with the entrance to the Lincoln tunnel, so traffic is horrendous during rush hour. This means that fi you're not a fan of honking cars, definitely don't live here. Accessing 36th street by public transportation is easy because it's equidistant from Penn Station and Times Square. That, however, may be its biggest selling point.
hhusted I agree with you partially. I think it depends on what part of the street you are on and what section of the city. some sections I found fascinating, while other areas were downright nasty looking. So I guess it depends on where you are.
