This is another skid-row landmark one won’t forget– especially during my four years in Hells Kitchen.  Ah, the Playpen which seemed to be spared of the Times Square clean-up.  The New York Times wrote a nice farewell to the eighth avenue establishment which certainly lived a long life until 2007. It’s the gallery of photos is most impressive; shows off the theatre’s structure and history.  Certainly to all be part of another grand commercial scheme by Tisch. This old New Yorker won’t forget walking by many days with iced coffee or on her way home from work.
