Reminder of Gritty Old Times Square Now a Tourist Attraction

New, 4 comments

Peep-O-Rama was the last sex shop standing on "The Deuce" when it closed in 2002 after a titillating 50-year run. It was bulldozed to make way for the Durst Organization's Bank of America Tower, but one memento of the 42nd Street of old was saved from the scrap heap. Vanishing New York reports that Peep-O-Rama's neon sign has been fully restored by the Times Square Alliance, a group partly responsible for the decline of debauchery in Midtown. Irony alert! The sign is now on display in the Times Square Visitor Center, and we'd tell you where that is, but it's not like you're actually going to go there.
