Used to cruise all the spots in the 80's. I was a teenage techie in those days, and often got beeped to work at 245 Park at some obscene hour. From about 11pm til ?, the street was packed with hookers. Would ask them to move so that I could park my car. A few blocks north and east there was a gay pedophile cruise. Not my thing and still bizarre to me. Live on the Upper East Side now and go to sleep early, but still see the occasional pocket of chicks a couple times a year in the weirdest places. Only once and then never again. In front of the Post Office on 85th street. 3rd ave and 75th. The city is so much nicer these days it's unreal. I miss the action a little, but not the homeless, the squeegee guys, or the boys going down to 40 deuce to get paid.
