Storyline

42nd STREET: RIVER TO RIVER is an impressionistic, graphic history of one of the world's most infamous streets: Manhattan's 42nd Street. Likened to a DNA strip of New York City, the street has ranged from the glamorous to the derelict, housing everything from peep shows to such international institutions as the United Nations. The documentary is an exploration of the street's expansion from the farmland where Washington bivouacked his troops to the flashy, commercial center that it is today. With historical information, musical performances and personal narratives, the film traces the rise, subsequent dilapidation, and eventual resurgence of a street that has come to represent a place where, notoriously, anything may and has happened.

Could have been good

So much time wasted in this documentary with music and clips from musicals. Clearly the musical history of 42nd Street itself needs to be covered...what I'm referring to is the random, jarring insertion of unnecessary singing and clips. It was so distracting I only made it through half the film. The parts where they actually talked about the street were interesting. It's a shame it was too annoying to watch.
