  • You are not able to get an idea until these there, both day and night, because at night with lighting so it is still day. Here are all theatres with eternal shows with many years in billboard for example, the Phantom of the Opera with more than 20 years, el rey León also many years and other shows, altogether wonderful even just spend there awhile, recommended, if you can enjoy some better play, live all the atmosphere before and after.

  • I don't think there is a person who goes to NEW YORK and not have the curiosity to go through there. The movement is constant of people coming and going, "super heroes" posing for pictures, people from all over the world.

  • 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
