Danny A.: I’ll be honest; it’s not a huge transition uptown. It's not a long trip. If you look at a group of girls, it’s a $10 cab ride to the Plaza.
Steve Lewis: From where?
DA: From anywhere downtown.
SL: And every once in a while you go to the park, so it’s not as intimidating as 63rd and Amsterdam. It is the park.
DA: People assume, ‘I have to go all the way uptown.’ In reality, at nighttime – I’ve done it plenty of times just to figure it out – at nighttime it’s a seven-, eight-minute cab ride.
SL: People are going to Johnny Utah’s now, on 51st Street.
DA: Once a week.
SL: They are going, so they are used to going to that neighborhood.
DA: It’s being pushed in that direction, but I like to think of it as if you’re already going out, it doesn’t really matter if it’s uptown or downtown. I mean, I wouldn’t go somewhere on 90-something street. I think that’s ridiculous.
But what about a group of girls taking an eight-minute helicopter ride to 90-something street? Would that be okay?
