A two-mile long 42nd Street crosses Manhattan from the East River in the east to the Hudson River in the west part of NYC, and it is known for its busy pace, heavy traffic, theaters -- New Amsterdam Theater, New Victory Theater, Regal E-Walk Theater complex, movie theater AMC Empire 25, also Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. All these attractions are in the east part of the street, in the area of Times Square and Broadway. Then the street crosses the 8th Avenue and goes further down to the Hudson River.
The skyscrapers flanking the 42nd Street in the Theater District, are decorated with some stunning neon billboards and digital screens. The aerial views of the 42nd Street from the top of some high-rises show a very busy, non-stop street life; and in the evenings the 42nd Street lightens up even more, after the shows theater goers fill up the pedestrian walk lanes on their way to Broadway, that welcomes them with even louder buzz and entertainment.
