"No street evokes New York City's Energy, Variety, History and Inventiveness  more vividly than 42nd Street.   Every native knows The Street from songs and stories.   Every visitor quickly learns that it is center city: it cuts across the heart of Manhattan to join Broadway, the main north-south artery, at Times Square.   And yet, no street holds more of the city's secrets."
