Ghosts of Times Square, Pt 8...

This was the 42nd St. entrance to Hotel Carter, undoubtedly the most flea ridden, hooker infested, flophouse appealing joint on "the Deuce." The hotel's 43rd Street entrance still exists, as does the hotel. And it continues to receive horrible reviews...! 
And as it appears today...prostitutes or ice cream-- you decide..

I'm loving these photos. As I just posted re another set of shots, they're disorienting but they're also informative and disturbing.

You're making great use of the internet.

Excellent photos..

Laurie said...

Ken, these are fantastic. I don't know what it says about me that I prefer the first shot!

Robert said...

Do you know when the first photo was taken? I was going to guess early 1990s.

Ken Mac said...

took that shot in 1992...

Joan said...

Love the before and after but do I really have to choose? I guess Ice Cream.

I'd like to say more, but I'm checking out ... leisurely.

Enjoy all of these photos very much. Could the Hotel Carter at one time have been a theater, the old facade on the building is interesting.

Why not the two?

I really think the second photo was take in Las Vegas or maybe the giant mall in Minnesota. Not so much NYC anymore :(
