As a Maryland who had never been north of Pennsylvania / Delaware area - shameful, I know! :) - I had always though that New York was portrayed as an amazing and energetic place in movies, since that's how the cinematographers and directors want to portray. Well, news flash: News York City is portrayed that way since it truly is... More

A great show, very funny and enjoyable. The theater was very small and intimate, the show was visible from every seat. Although the musical was great, I didn't leave with any particular song in my head. I did have a problem understanding some of the accents , African accent and unable to understand some of the dialog and song lyrics.... More

Looked out my hotel window and saw the Jersey Boys sign brightly lit up. I was wanting to see at least one Broadway show. When I saw the Jersey Boys sign I took it as a sign. Called and reserved seats. Fantastic show. One of the highlights of my New York vacation. Mahalo.

This is such a 'feel good' musical, we had a smile on our faces from start to finish. There was great energy on stage & the audience were singing along to all the Abba hits.

Bags of rubbish left on pavements didn't add to the charm of NYC. I would compare Broadway to Central London, but without the special something that London has. The word overrated comes to mind.

The last time I visited it was still open to traffic. This time it felt more leisurely not to mention " safe". I love the energy even on one of the coldest days of the year

An old fashioned fun musical. Great acting by the leads but don't forget the ghost of momma. She steals the show. Tony Danza is as good as expected. Enjoy this true Broadway Musical...I did and I have seen hundreds as a native New York theater-goer. ( flops and hits) This is worth seeing!

There is really nothing else like this except maybe the theatre district in London. Broadway is unique. The theaters are all different and full of history. Over the years we have loved some shows and hated others. (Just saw revival of the Heidi Chonicles and the acting was awful. Still a favorite play though). Nothing beats going to Sardi's after...

I love the energy, and the excitement. There is nothing quite like the possibilities that exist before you, while you stand in the TKTS line and wonder what you will be able to see! Nothing would be a bad choice! All the different languages being spoken, the different people, the different things to see -- the best people watching in... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
