Not surprising 5th Ave. was quiet.

The slowest time of the year has always been late August through September and into early October. And any bartender or waiter familiar with the area can certainly confirm that for you. Can't prove a negative, so it's not possible to say definitively that other factors are not also involved, but you don't need to go any further than precisely the time of year to explain fewer visitors...
