The theatre district of New York, is, as the name describes, the area where the majority of the Broadway theatres are located. This section of New York is known as Manhattan, and if you are visiting New York for a weekend or longer in order to see a play or two, this is the place to be! Self catering accommodation in the theatre district of New York City is of the highest quality, and enables you to stay in a place like home whilst on the other side of the pond.
It goes without saying that if you are visiting the theatre district, then there is a strong chance you are doing so to watch a musical or play. As performances and shows vary, there is no one place in particular that it is recommended to go, as it would depend on what is being performed, as opposed to the venue itself. If you fancy a break away from the Broadway scene, then there are a huge range of activities on offer. These range from ice skating, walks in Central Park, jogging, bicycle tours and much more besides.
