We are used to theatre land in London, which we find to be very clean. Thought that Broadway was a bit scruffy and were disappointed. Saw Wicked which we enjoyed very much.

A great street full of shops and people. The nearer you get to time square the more crowded it becomes. At night it is awesome.

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
