Broadway at 49th Street, Manhattan
|Pussycat Theater in 1977. The parade route, which constantly changes, ran down Broadway right past the Pussycat in the late 1970s.|

|Pussycat Theater (just visible on the left) in 1984, with the Brill Building visible just beyond. Apparently, erotic offerings were quite popular at that time in Times Square (Ghislian Bonneau).|

I hope you enjoyed this entry in our "the more things change, the more they stay the same" series. There are virtually no signs of the seedy period that Times Square went through from about 1965-1985, but who knows what the future will bring. Please visit some of our other pages in this series!
