  • One of the areas that I liked most about the trip. A street lined with restaurants, theaters, shops and many lights everywhere. You will spend for it many times, it is very close to Times Square. I especially went to see the musical ALADIN. WOW had never enjoyed so much. The actors are incredible, highlighting the work of genius! A last show, full of Visual effects. 100% recommended.

  • The street is supposedly the only one who follows the entire Manhattan on along. It means at least that the street is changing a section on all the kilometers. So something is very good and some are alright. Nice that the street is not quite right for a change.

  • Grand avenue (22 kms) with major department stores but it does not break anything. When it comes to Broadway it evokes more the Times Square area with all the theaters but it's especially in the evening there is animation. On the other hand, Broadway is the North-South axis that it must take to well to visit New York on foot and go from one neighborhood to another in the East as in the West.

  • an important part of American History
  • broadway is a very good place it has great shows like mamamia, lionking and etc. i suggest lion king its a comedy and i loved it its great i realy suggest it and the street is beautiful. my sister realy loved the shows :D
  • I thought it was great. It doesn't look too well taken care of and most the theaters are quite old, but I think that's all part of the charm. Walking down we could see all the shows and people will stand out sometimes and meet you. I MET TOM HANKS!! and by MET I mean - we walked by as he was coming out of his show and managed to snap pictures of him. That was pretty cool. :)
  • It doens't look too well taken care of but I enjoyed it, for the most part. I had a pretty good overall experience. I'll be coming back soon.
  • I would go to every show if i could . I love the shows. I saw 3 shows so far. It is a fun expiriance.
