Big Broadway shows may be the namesake of Manhattan’s popular Theatre District, but thanks to a resurgence in new construction, the area has quickly become a hot-spot for potential homebuyers.
Encompassing the blocks between West 40th Street and West 54th Street, the Theatre District is located in the heart of Midtown. The area offers a wealth of mass transit options, as well as diverse dining and retail opportunities. It has long been a “prime” location for pre- and post-show dining, with many New York staples like Sardi’s and Lindy’s drawing in locals and tourists alike for generations.
New construction, particularly along Eighth Avenue, has soared in recent years and helped transform the neighborhood from drab to fab. Luxury rentals and residences with high-end amenities have sprouted seemingly overnight as competition heats up.
