I'm okay with superheroes. They can be fun. That plus the fact that U2 did the soundtrack made me think this could be a cool experience. I couldn't have been more wrong. After the show I was in full rant mode with the two other friends I was with. One of my friends said that it wasn't that bad. I... More

This was a different experience for me. My girlfriend loves musicals, so I agreed to go to one with her. She decided this one was best suited for me. Not exactly what I had in mind, as it is clearly meant for families and not for dates, but it was a fun time regardless. To make it a great night... More

We had read a few negative reviews of this show before we went to NYC but decided to see for ourselves. We were not disappointed! We were sitting middle level and it was perfect for all the high flying scenes. It really was a great show that kept un on the edge of our seats the entire time. It's unfortunate... More

It was a nice play but I expected more. I was quite asleep during the first half. The second half was a little better.

I know there are some haters out there on Broadway about this show, but i loved it. I made the mistake of sitting front row. Great view of the stage, but half the show is spidy zipping around the entire theater so i was looking up and behind myself. i would either sit middle orchestra or middle level if i... More

This was my first ever Broadway show and let me just say that you do not need to be a Spider-Man, nor a fan of musicals, to enjoy this! It is absolutely amazing and the special effects are brilliant. Unfortunately, it has now concluded its run on Broadway, however, I read that there are apparently on-going talks to bring the... More

First show for me- decided Spider-Man as I know the story so if I got confused or didn't enjoy it I didn't miss much. I LOVED IT the effects and the acting was amazing, felt like u was was right there. The songs didn't bother me (not a musical fan) was really impressed with the show. The only down fall... 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.
