A feast of musicals

My friend and I took full advantage of staying so close to Broadway - and the half price ticket office. We saw four great shows in 6 days - and loved every minute of it!

Broadway is busy. It's completely packed with people, but totally worth the visit, even if you're not going to see a show.

Best show I have ever seen. Hurry, it closes Feb 14, 2016. Star Trek lovers need to see George Takei in his best role ever. All family, especially with teens, should see this.

Do make the effort to attend at least one show here. It can be quite expensive for the full broadway musicals but still worth it. The Art Theatre experience and scene it's quite something, the atmosphere of the city that never sleeps is here. This is quite you one think New York is and does not dissapoint

Just as expected, this place is energetic and swarming with people eager to see fabulous plays and musicals in mid-town Manhattan! We loved being there and loved the show we watched! Will be back!

Saw the Carole King show "Beautiful" with discounted tickets obtained from the TKTS booth in Times Square. A great experience at a mostly reasonable cost! Recommended!

I was charmed by the show and amazed by the cleanliness of the entire neighborhood. A few people still meander, but foot traffic can be bearable. People on cell phones are a danger.

It's always fun walking down this street, as it is full of lights and people galore. Always bustling, its especially lively at night when all the lights are lit up , which is always a sight to see!

Just like the movies.. Buzzing, always buzzing! Lots of people, quite a nice environment considering though. Try not to allow people to stop you, chances are they are after your attention and then after some dollar. Lovely diner around there called create your own burger (i think), its pretty cool if you want to grab some food nearby.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
