About the Broadway Theater District

The Broadway Theater District originated in the early 1900s as theaters began to move from Union Square further uptown to the Times Square area because of its cheaper real estate. The invention of the electric light bulb paved the way for the famous electric signage, and the nickname “The Great White Way.” Today, the area now attracts millions of visitors and further gleams as an entertainment epicenter for not only New York City, but for the world.
