West side, mid-town improvement projects. How will this affect our hobby?

    Yesterday plans were unveiled to develop the far west mid-town area of Manhattan (the area around the Javits Center (sp?)).

    Today it was announced that the new New York Times office tower will be built across the street from the Port Authority Bus Terminal on Eigth Ave. between 40th and 41st St. This location is currently home to several peep show/porno movie stores.

    Economic development tends to chase out our hobby and it's cousins. I believe these two projects may be the final nails in the coffin for adult pursuits in the 42nd street area.

    But I must add that although I will miss this stuff if it goes away from this area, New York must pursue development with even more vigor than usual in light of recent events. And if adult pursuits do leave this location they will re-appear somewhere else. I just hope it's in a location convenient for me.
