"Very tourist heavy"

The start of 41st's run through Times Square really indicates just exactly what Times Square is meant for: there's a massive Red Lobster right at the corner of 41st and 7th. Why anyone would want to come all the way to New York City to eat at Red Lobster is beyond me, but it manages to remain, so I suppose an awful lot of people seem to think that's acceptable. The New Amsterdam Stage Door is just next to the Red Lobster where the Lion King is enjoying its insanely long run. Zeigfield Follies debuted at this theatre in 1913. Across the street from the New Amsterdam is the Nederlander Theatre which saw Broadway premieres for plays such as Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? It's a big theatre that looks very Times Square to me. But, it often does have some great plays which I often don't say about Broadway theatre. There are also two hotels on this block: a cute, boutique hotel and a massive, ugly, Hilton (I'm presuming for all of the Red Lobster patrons).
The street at from 8th and 9th is taken up by the Port Authority Bus Terminal so that's pretty much the end of 41st street through Times Square. It's a little run but it's exactly what you would expect from any street in Times Square: catered to people that don't live in New York.
