"Our mission has been to revitalize this important piece of New York's cultural heritage."
The New 42nd Street Inc. was founded in 1990 to revitalize one of the worst blocks in New York City. After years of decay, what was once the place for theatre in New York had become the place with the highest rate of street crime. The extensive restoration and renovation of historic theatres has returned 42nd Street to its place as the center of entertainment in New York.
Our interactive tour, 42nd Street: A Century of Theatre, will help you learn more about the past and present of the street and its theatres. Requires the Flash plug-in.
