I lived on 48th between 8th and Broadway during the Guliani years and it was a great place to live. To this day the only decent Cajun restaurant in the city of New york is on 48th and 9th. (The Delta Grill ...try the gator)
when Guliani was Mayor this neighborhood really seemed like it was on the upswing permanently. It was mostly families and young professionals, and but for the Friday and Saturday night crowds of Tourists, it was incredibly convenient to everything.
I had the only commute in the world that was further vertically than horizontally. I lived on the 30th floor, rode the elevator to the street, walked over to 49th and 6th, where I got on the elevator and went up to the 53rd floor.
I never even owned an umbrella.
Shame it's going back to the 'old days'.

Long-time fan of the Delta Grill. Used to go there weekly. But, try Mara's Homemade in the East Village of Oddfellow's over in -- gasp -- Hoboken. They're better.

I spent nearly every Saturday afternoon my senior year in highschool on that block, on "Music Row."
Manny's, "Smash," "We Buy," Stuyvesant, the list of music stores goes on...

Never liked the Great Jones Cafe?
