The long-running Unicorn
(277 W. 22nd St.
, 212-924-2921) gay porn palace, located conveniently beside Barracuda gay bar and just around the corner from newer porn shops like Blue Store
and Rainbow Station
. The Unicorn has long been known for its significant selection of blue movies as well as its private video booths (yeah, in other words, it's a quasi-sex club, unofficially, in the sense that guys venture back to the booths and mess around). It's a bit sleazier in feel than its 8th Avenue neighbors, which can be good or bad depending on your outlook - and mood. The Unicorn tends to be super-cruisy into the wee hours, especially on weekends.
