The Theater District is the teeming heart of Midtown West. In the pedestrian plazas of Times Square, costumed characters beckon to energetic crowds under the pulsing lights of towering digital billboards. Locals and tourists gather on the giant red staircase above the TKTS booth, which sells tickets to Broadway shows running at the area’s historic theaters. On busy 42nd Street, chain stores and restaurants abound.
The Theater District runs from West 40th Street to the south to West 53rd Street to the north, and sits between Eighth Avenue to the west and Sixth Avenue to the east. High-energy days and nights, destination entertainment venues, and an approachable (and always-packed) drinking and dining scene.
