  • Broadway is where are the majority of theaters featuring the best and most famous works of New York, you can simply walk in the surroundings and see firsthand everything you've seen in movies and series television or in your case go to see any of them and no one can tell you then.

  • 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. :)
  • an important part of American History
