Enjoyed this Broadway show about Emilio and Gloria Estefan. Lovely songs. This is the first time I witnessed in 3 decades of watching that the theater is truly packed with SRO. Guaranteed full enjoyment.

Love, love, love Broadway! We recently saw Aladdin and it was great. It was laugh-out-loud funny! It is at The New Amsterdam Theatre on 42nd Street. All the Broadway shows are fabulous!

There is no where like Broadway to see a show. Every theater is exciting . Shows, as a whole, are not inexpensive, but worth it.

How is it even possible to review Times Square? It's almost like the whole world meets here. With multiple nationalities converging on this live center of commerce and entertainment at any given time, the Square lives up to its reputation. No matter what season of the year it is, Times Square never sleeps and if you blink you'll miss something... More

It was difficult to decide which Broadway Show to book but we absolutely made the right choice with "Kinky Boots". It was fun, though provoking and engaging. All of the cast and costumes were superb and special mention has to be made about those dazzling Kinky Boots! Definitley a show that I would highly recommend and go see again.

Broadway is like the top end of Oxford Street, London. Very busy and buzzing 24/7 and very touristy. If you are going to a show, then great, otherwise don't spend much time here.

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.
