38th St Between 8th Ave and 9th Ave

This is a block undergoing change. While there are plenty of old buildings, even the most ornate of them advertise "LINGERIES DVD" while the classical architecture is either covered up, or out of view. And even though the west end of the block had a few new structures, older places like Esposito Pork Shop remain virtually unchanged.

I can't imagine it staying like this for long.  Considering it's proximity to the Port Authority, the future extension of the 7 train, and the west side rail yards (slated for development....at some point in the next hundred and fifty years), there's probably going to be a huge influx of new people to the neighborhood at some point.
