Driving Downtown Streets - 42nd Street - New York City NY USA - Episode 18. Starting Point: 42nd Street & 11th Avenue - https://goo.gl/maps/sbrXqvDeaNq . 42nd Street is a major crosstown street in the New York City borough of Manhattan, known for its theaters, especially near the intersection with Broadway at Times Square. It is also the name of the region of the theater district (and, at times, the red-light district) near that intersection. The street has held a special place in New Yorkers' imaginations since at least the turn of the 20th century, and is the site of some of New York's best known buildings, including (east to west) the United Nations, Chrysler Building, Grand Central Terminal, Times Square and the Port Authority Bus Terminal. 20th century From the late 1950s until the late 1980s, 42nd Street, nicknamed "The Deuce", was the cultural center of American grindhouse theaters, which spawned an entire subculture. The book Sleazoid Express, a travelogue of the 42nd Street grindhouses and the films they showed, describes in detail the unique blend of people who made up the theater-goers, For much of the mid and late 20th century, the area of 42nd Street near Times Square was home to activities often considered unsavory, including peep shows. A comedian once said, "They call it 42nd Street because you're not safe if you spend more than forty seconds on it." Revitalization In the early 1990s, city government encouraged a clean-up of the Times Square area. In 1990, the city government took over six of the historic theatres on the block of 42nd Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, and New 42nd Street, a not-for-profit organization, was formed to oversee their renovation and reuse, as well as to construct new theatres and a rehearsal space. In 1993, the Walt Disney Corporation bought the New Amsterdam Theatre, which it renovated a few years later. It is now the flagship for Disney's theatrical productions in New York. Since the mid-1990s, the block has again become home to legitimate theatres and several multi-screen mainstream movie theatres, along with shops, restaurants, hotels, and attractions such as Madame Tussauds wax museum and Ripley's Believe It Or Not that draw millions to the city every year. This area is now co-signed as "New 42nd Street" to signify this change. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/42nd_Street_(Manhattan) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City

(7 Oct 2016) LUXURY IPIC THEATER OPENS IN MANHATTAN More and more people are opting to stay home to watch movies these days. iPic Entertainment is continuing its effort to reverse that trend with the opening of its first iPic luxury theater in New York City. The iPic Theaters Fulton Market opens its door to the public Friday (7 OCT), offering what iPic Entertainment CEO and Founder Hamid Hashemi says is the most comfortable way to watch a movie in a movie theater. "The lap of luxury - as you can see we're sitting in a pod. These are custom designed patented pods that encapsulate two leather-covered seats. The seats are reclining, push of a button, you can get your seats reclined, pillows and blankets, popcorn is no charge. This is truly an affordable luxury, really the best way that can watch a movie. If you were to watch a movie at your home, this is how you would be watching it." Hashemi maintains that even with advancements in home entertainment, there's still nothing like watching a movie - with other people - at the theater. "You can have the greatest kitchen in your house, you still go out to a restaurant. You're going out to a restaurant because you're going for a shared experience. Movies are the same. Yes, you can watch them at home, people have the greatest flat screen TVs now and a great sound system but still really nothing replaces sharing those feelings and emotions with a group of people." This is the 15th luxury theater iPic Entertainment has opened in the United States since 2006, with other theaters in such cities as Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Chicago and Redmond in Washington State. Part of the luxury experience is getting to eat food - beyond just popcorn, nachos and Raisinets and served right to your seat. iPic theaters feature food developed by Chef Sherry Yard, who says she's a movie buff herself. "We're all busy. We don't have that much time. Quite often you're running, you're trying to get to the theater to see a great movie and you're trying to fit in a dinner right before hand and here at iPic, we've redefined the way you can dine in the dark. It's truly amazing that you can have tuna on crispy rice, you can have a lobster roll, Caesar salads, filet mignon sliders, just the most amazing food right here at your seat, laid back, watching the best movies ever." Yard says the food is crafted so moviegoers won't make a mess while eating during the film. "In addition to our creativity, the most important thing is that the guest can dine in the dark and when you dine in the dark you can't really see perfectly and you're watching the movie, so you need food that's really going to interact and handheld items. So things you can pick up with your fingers, things that are easy to eat - never too loud, never too smelly." The company even features what it calls "ninja" butlers who will bring people food in the theater before and during the movie, as quickly and quietly as possible, so as not to disturb the movie watching experience. There's even a full restaurant and bar upstairs at iPic Theaters Fulton Market called the Tuck Room, featuring Yard's food and some creative drinks from executive bartender and sommelier Adam Seger. He says he calls his approach to providing drinks as "farm to glass." "We're really in touch with the seasons, with making everything we possibly can make from scratch from maraschino cherries, our own homemade ginger beer to even hand cutting our own ice for our Old Fashions and for Manhattans and then we also are inspired from everything from the rich history in lower Manhattan." The iPic Theater is located in the Fulton Market Building in Manhattan's South Street Seaport.
