So many homeless folk around that it can become a little concerning. Almost too many fast food places & noise & rubbish.

If in NYC and you don't watch a Broadway show- you might as well have skipped the town! Best theatre in the world is on Broadway.

The purpose of this trip was to take our adult daughter to Broadway shows for her birthday. Saw Waitress and the Great Comet of 1812. Actually liked Waitress better which was the opposite of what I expected

We saw Aladdin and the original genie came that night to perform. He was amazing! The theater was must smaller than I expected, but I liked it because it was more personal and it felt like you were a part of the show and not just in a big crowd. Very ornate decorations.

Broadway is an amazing place, full of theatres, restaurants and coffee shops. It's also a place to people watch and enjoy the many street entertainers who perform there. A real eye opener.

Busy, bustling area, full of Iconic names and locations. Personally I preferred a quick wander and look but some may find reasons to stay a couple of hours. Plenty going on so depends on your tastes.

This was the boys (aged 13 and 16) first time seeing a Broadway play and they just loved it, the whole experience is something magical they are already making plans for when we can come back to see another play.

Thank smkorfant

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
