[MUSIC] Behind me is 42nd street, it runs from the East River all the way to the Hudson, across Manhattan. We're going to walk this street from one end to the other and see as much as we can. I'm Andrew McCarthy, this is my neighborhood, let's go see it. [MUSIC] The world convenes at the United Nations, just above the east end of 42nd Street. [UNKNOWN] Really? Welcome. Very good, very good. [FOREIGN] [LAUGH] [LAUGH] [FOREIGN] I love New York. [MUSIC] You always know the out of towners. They're the ones waiting on the curb. The New Yorkers were in the street. The Chrysler Building is my favorite building in New York. Just west is the most famous train station in the country. Three-quarters of a million people pass through Grand Central every day. [CROSSTALK] There's more to this place than just trains. [MUSIC] Let's eat. I'll take another. A short walk away, things are a lot quieter. [MUSIC] Great place to spend the afternoon. The library also happens to have a beautiful backyard. I love Bryant Park, it has the most European feel of any park in town. [MUSIC] Just one block west of this oasis, is the most chaotic corner in the country. Times Square, crossroads of the world. [INAUDIBLE] Broadway off to Pedestrian traffic only. Best idea he ever had. [MUSIC] No part of 42nd street has changed more than this block between 7th and 8th. It used to be all drugs and prostitution. Now it's Disney. [MUSIC] I'll get the whole back one. I got it. How's that look? Can you get more of the background, please? More background, right. This far west section of 42nd Street isn't so much a neighborhood being rebuilt. As one that's being born. Lot of rats down there? Sometimes. Yeah. [LAUGH] You're a better man than me. It's a living. Yeah. [LAUGH] Here's the end of the line, 42nd and 12th. There's the Hudson River, the Circle Line, the Intrepid. It's New Jersey beyond that. Nice walk. [BLANK_AUDIO] [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
