"Just south of Disney Town"

Yeah yeah, Times Square is nothing like it used to be. It's a Disney-fied version of itself. but it's still a place unlike any other... and 40th (which just escapes it to the South) hosts some good places to check out. For any actors, playwrights, or play lovers - The Drama Book Shop between 7th and 8th Ave's is a must see. Full of more literature than you could ever find after a lifetime building a collection, it's a great place to shop, read, or hangout and hear some live music. You'll find Port Authority near by, great $1 slices towards 9th Avenue, but the DBS is the real gem.

"Art deco at its finest"

Being situated between 5th and 6th Avenue means that you have to do something good to catch the eye and the American Standard building is just the sort of thing that would draw people and attention to any street. The stark contrast of the dark turrets at the top of the building, especially hen compared to similar buildings in the city, stands it out as an innovative piece of architecture and is another one of they key components of New York’s art-deco style.
