"Theatre, Dance and Cool Buildings"

Depsite the fact that I don't like this neighborhood, I kind of enjoy West 45th. It has a lively energy, some beautiful townhouses and a lot of art culture which makes it, aside from one sore around 8th, a pretty cool block to live on if you have to live in the neighborhood.
The block at 10th houses the IMG headquarters which used to be the Tootsie Roll Headquarters where the Tootsie Pop was invented. It's funny that such a big business situation is housed in a building that still has a Tootsie Roll logo on the side. I like that they didn't remove it, though. There's a playground across the street, but that's pretty much it for the block. The block at 9th has a little more going on with the Film Center (a building that houses several production companies) and a residential hotel on the corner. Next door to the hotel there's an apartment building called the Whitby where Doris Day and Joe Dimaggio have both lived. There's another nice apartment building and a sushi restaurant on the same side of the block which makes the fact that Private Eyes Strip Club across the street seems a little misplaced. Next door to Private Eyes is a big Broadway theatre that was playing The Lion King last time I checked. Broadway Dance Center is on the other side of the Strip Club which, again, just adds to the creep factor of Private Eyes' location. Broadway Dance Center is one of the more renowned dance schools in the country and I take classes there every summer. It's a fantastic school on a great block but all these foreign kids are always hanging around outside in between classes and I get worried that they're going to be creeped on. I wish that club would move but I'm not the block boss.
