5. This Former Souvenir Shop Contains the Forgotten Remnants of a Loew’s Theater
Times Square is home to over 30 theaters. Sadly, many of Times Square’s opulent theaters have either been nearly gutted or completely demolished. One former theater, which is overlooked by most who visit the area, lies in the middle of that spectrum. Until recently, the former Loew’s Mayfair Theater was a souvenir store that incorporated some of the theater’s detailing. The store went out of business and so far nothing new has opened in its place. The Mayfair has a fun history too, a burlesque theater before it was a Loew’s.
