This great vintage photograph shows the block of West 42nd Street between 7th and 8th Avenues about 40 years ago circa 1978. Looking west, Times Square is at the photographers back, and Port Authority Bus Terminal is visible at the intersection ahead. Here is a Google StreetView of how the street from the same viewpoint looks today:
