Just south of Times Square, the commercial grandeur that is the theater district subsides into simply commercial pollution. Rows of low-end stores and chain banks line Fashion Avenue while anonymous offices sit on top, looking over the gray street. As far as midtown goes, this is about as midtown-y as you can get.
On the corner of 39th Street is the Fashion Center Information Kiosk, which to me seems perpetually empty and lacking any information. Famous for its giant button and needle, it's not unusual to see it sitting in the dark with a few ads hung inside. Of a bit more interest is the garment worker sculpture just north of the booth.
