Since the Gentrification of Times Square, Where Have All of NYC's Peep Shows Gone?

The re-branding of Times Square occured in the 1990s with new zoning laws that prohibited sex-related businesses from operating within 500 feet of schools, residences and houses of worship and within 500 feet of one another. These rules have caused peep shows and adult entertainment to move to new locations, including 8th Avenue, 6th Avenue in Midtown and the Hudson River waterfront.
