"Adult Businesses" On Eighth Avenue

These are the remaining adult businesses on what used to be seedy Eighth Avenue in Times Square. In the 90's, former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani attempted to rid the city of most of its pornography businesses by adopting strict new zoning rules. But many of the sex shops and peep shows survived along Eighth Avenue, west of Times Square, such as The Playpen and Lace, by adapting to new rules that defined precisely what constitutes an "adult" business.
