New York - 42nd Street

Our live HD webcam on New York’s 42nd Street offers an extraordinary view of one of midtown Manhattan’s most buzzing arteries.

42nd Street stretches from New York’s East River to the Hudson! Ferries can, in fact, be spotted throughout the day as they head to the city docks. From East to West tourists will find theatres, hotels, restaurants, cinemas and so much more. Home to quite a few landmarks such as the United Nations HQs, the Chrysler building, Grand Central Terminal, New York Public Library, Bryant Park, NY Port Authority Bus Terminal and One Vanderbilt (currently in construction), 42nd Street intersects with Broadway – which means it’s just steps away from fabulous Times Square - Park Ave, 5th Ave and Madison.

Every year, on the corner of 42nd and Madison, gigantic balloons color the city sky; Macy’s famous Thanksgiving Day Parade, a national tradition since 1924 and the country’s second-oldest Thanksgiving day parade, unwinds along the metropolis’ streets. A festive energy fills the air as characters from beloved cartoons, marching bands and, of course, Mr. Turkey himself entertain endless crowds of all ages. At the end of the parade Santa Clause is welcomed to Herald Square!

There’s so much to see in this action-packed New York City webcam view and it will surely keep you glued to the screen!

 

Fun Facts

From the ‘60s all the way to the ‘80s, New York’s West 42nd Street and part of the Times Square area was labeled as the “red-light district”, a place of crime, drugs and adult movie lounges intentionally avoided by visitors and residents. Seems unbelievable, right? The city’s politics and the efforts made during the 90s proved efficient and paved the way to an important transition that providentially elevated the area to the tourist hotspot we know and love today!

    18feb19--Today is Washington's Birthday, also known as Presidents' Day, a national holiday held on the third Monday of February. The day honors presidents of the United States, including George Washington. Presidents' Day is a public holiday in most US states. Nonetheless, many businesses are open as usual and many stores hold sales on Washington's Birthday. Many delivery services, except for the USPS, have a regular service and many, but not all, public transit systems operate on regular schedules. Some schools close for the whole week for a mid-winter recess. Indiana observes the Washington's birthday holiday in December. George Washington was the first president of " The United States of America ". His first term as the first president was from 1789 to 1793 and his second term from 1793 to 1797. Before he became president, he played important roles in the military, leading the Continental Army to victory over the British in 1783. EnJoy EnJoy

    7feb19--LOL , Two vehicles both in the same block at the same time and going different directions did three point turns to head the other direction. Almost like it was choreographed. EnJoy EnJoy
