Take Your Date To 33rd Street



Welcome the New Year in by exploring a vibrant part of New York City with someone special. 33rd Street abounds with delis, restaurants from all corners of the world, Irish pubs, wine bars, etc. to satisfy everyone before or after sports events at Madison Square Garden. Shop for board, card and role playing games at Compleat Strategist or visit the Houdini Museum in Fantasma Magic.

Then there is Hudson Yards, a 26-acre site being developed to house 10,000 people and provide work space for 30,000. This development will revolutionize the area by combining mixed-use retail and residential space with parks, infrastructure, arts and culture.

“Bordered by the Hudson River, Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen and Midtown, this neighborhood is booming. It is a beacon for creative professionals, growing at five times the rate of the rest of Manhattan. A hub for fashion, design, communications and the arts, the area recently became the home of Google and other fast-growing technology and digital media firms. Hudson Yards will attract and cater to this vibrant, cutting-edge community.

Growth can be attributed to the success of the High Line which has spurred $2 billion of private investment, 12,000 new jobs and 29 development projects since opening in June 2009. The High Line recently started construction of its third and final phase which wraps Hudson Yards as it turns toward the Hudson River at West 30th Street and culminates at 12th Avenue and West 34th Street. 

Additional public investment in area parks, mass transit and infrastructure will ensure this is the most livable area of the city.”
