    what area is the Tenderloin? The photos always look a bit rough-and I say that in a good way!

    • I like using the “old” names for the neighborhoods I explore Loisjay. It goes back to my childhood and studies of NYC history, before real estate developers in the late 70s onward, changed the names to attract buyers.

      From the Wiki – “Tenderloin, Manhattan
      The Tenderloin was the name given to an entertainment and red-light district in the heart of the New York City borough of Manhattan during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The area originally ran from 23rd Street to 42nd Street and from Fifth Avenue to Seventh Avenue. By the turn of the 20th century, it had expanded northward to 57th or 62nd Street and west to Eighth Avenue, encompassing parts of what is now the Flatiron District, NoMad, Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen, the Garment District and the Theater District.”
