The Theater District is much more than just Broadway theaters. The area extends from West 40th Street to West 54th Street and from Sixth Avenue to Eighth Avenue. Times Square is included within those boundaries.
In addition to the buildings in Times Square, the Theater District includes all the Broadway theaters, Restaurant Row on West 46th Street (actually between Eighth Ninth Avenue) and the Midtown hotels.
Rents range from $54/sf to over $90/sf for Class A buildings, $32/sf to $83/sf for Class B buildings and $30/sf to $43/sf for Class C buildings.
It’s easy to get to and from the Theater District as the transit choices include the 1,2,3 4, 5, 6, A, C, E, N, Q, R, S, B, D, F, M and 7 trains.
Working in the Theater District takes some patience, as walking quickly on the sidewalk is difficult at best. With eight shows a week at most theaters, this area is always bustling. Restaurants are busy before and after showtimes, so it’s best to plan ahead with reservations. If you’re on a street when a show lets out, everything seems to be moving, yet is at a complete standstill.
