The Theater District has good bones but it’s a bit shabby and uneven--our euphemism for "don’t go it alone after dark". The famous old theaters are gorgeous from the inside, and some from the outside as well, and they share their sidewalks with neon and glittering storefronts. Many fine restaurants wedge themselves behind small entries to offer theater-goers quickly delivered meals pre-theater, and a relaxed evening for post-theater diners. Recently the area has welcomed big business with grand shiny new buildings, most notably Reuters and The New York Times. Consequently, we suspect, the area will soon be posh: even the Port Authority, which in the 1980s was home to a large number of the city’s homeless men and women, now has a restaurant with linen service.
