A dubious honor for a Midtown street. 35th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues has been named the city's ugliest block.

The Municipal Art Society gave West 35th Street that special title during a tour of Manhattan's ugliest streets.

The society cited the presence of loading docks and scaffolding as well as the lack of natural light as key contributors to the street's ugliness.
