What a choice of shows

Great choice of shows to see, something for every one! I was amazed at how easy it was to get tickets at tkts ticket booths behind the steps people sit on in Times Square.

We went and saw 2 shows on Broadway. The theatres are small and intimate which makes the whole experience. We got upgraded seats at one show , 3 rows from front. All the theatres are in the same area and it is very safe. We were able to purchase tickets a day before the show.

We had a great visit to NYC but it is incredibly busy and absolutely crazy. Loads to see and do but I would have preferred not to have had so many tour bus companies badgering us everyday.

OMG! I wish I could afford to go see many shows. But my partner got me my first as a Christmas gift and I absolutely had an amazing night. I cried and laugh. Did both at the same time. It will be a day I will never for get #xmas2015

Not as good as London's theatre area , a bit ordinary really . We sent to a show which we enjoyed but to be fair was expensive and not as good as ones seen in London.

Broadway is known for all the shows, right? And we did go to one of those - we also found it to be a great street to walk on for all the shopping possibilities it offers.

Broadway is 13 miles long and has it all. From the famous Broadway show theatres to commercial properties and everything in between. The core cuts right through Times Square area and is quite congested with people and cars. It has everything for everyone and you must go because it is Broadway.

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.
