M&M'S World

I have moved the obviously promotional language about this place here (see below). As a New Yorker, I have never heard of this place and, based on the description, it sounds like it may be nothing more than a souvenir shop, one of many devoted to different brands in this city. If anyone believes this is in fact an interesting or significant attraction, please feel free to savagely edit the text below for a non-promotional tone:

  • M&M'S WORLD® NEW YORK, 1600 Broadway (at 48th Street), 1-212-295-3850, [1]. Daily: 9:00am-Midnight. The world’s most beloved candy and candy characters now have a new home at the brand new Times Square destination, M&M’S WORLD® NEW YORK. Joining Las Vegas and Orlando as the only stores in the world dedicated to M&M’S® and M&M’S® branded items, the 25,000 square foot retail-entertainment store boasts three stories of interactive attractions and over 4,000 one-of-a-kind gifts and souvenirs, including apparel, household goods, jewelry, plush toys, specialty dispensers, and a collector’s gallery of products available only in New York. M&M'S® lovers can use an interactive “color mood analyzer” to determine which M&M’S® color best suits their current mood, as well as view an actual No.38 Ford Fusion NASCAR®. Visitors can also get a taste of the world’s largest display of plain and peanut M&M’S® in 22 different colors.  edit

Empire State Building[edit]

Anyone notice that the ESB is not technically within the boundaries of this district (since it supposedly ends at 34th Street)? LtPowers 16:04, 30 April 2012 (EDT)

Heh, I was just coming here to note the ESB's downgrade. Anyway, I noticed that myself when I was making the map...still, I wouldn't think of moving it - the ESB is very much part of Midtown and defines the Midtown skyline. Besides, it's only just outside the district as we've defined it. PerryPlanet Talk 17:31, 30 April 2012 (EDT)
I totally agree it belongs in Midtown. Was there a compelling reason for drawing the boundary at 34th Street? LtPowers 09:02, 1 May 2012 (EDT)
I have no idea. Looking back at the discussion over districts, it seems like 34th was suggested as the border and it was just adopted from there on. I'm not that familiar with Manhattan, but I suppose it's a prominent enough street that it just seemed like the natural choice for a dividing line. PerryPlanet Talk 11:10, 1 May 2012 (EDT)
