NEW YORK — Let's hear it for the boys.

There were girls of all ages swooning last night as Barry Manilow and a collection of boy bands including New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees and Boys II Men took over Times Square.

Manilow was on hand at the corner of 44th and Broadway for the renaming of that stretch of 44th Street as "Manilow Way."

The slightly younger set was at Irving Plaza where Donnie Wahlberg and Nick Lachey announced that New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees and Boys II Men would be hitting the road for a super tour. 

At the Greenwich Hotel in TriBeCa, Robert De Niro honored artist Joyce Pensato with the Robert DeNiro Sr. Award, a cash grant for a mid-career artist.
