    Broadway:

    1.A thoroughfare of New York, the longest street in the world. It begins at the southern tip of Manhattan and extends about 241 km (150 mi) north to Albany.

    2. The principal theater and amusement district of New York City, on the West Side of midtown Manhattan centered on Broadway.

    Broadway是貫穿紐約市的一條大路,

    主要的戲院以Broadway為中心群聚,

    所以就以百老匯為名,

    為戲劇主要代名詞,

    就像台北市的迪化街為年貨大街,

    台中的天津街為成衣集散地一樣,

    Broadway

    famous thoroughfare in New York City. It extends from Bowling Green near the foot of Manhattan island N to 262d St. in the Bronx. Throughout its length Broadway is chiefly a commercial street. In lower Manhattan it runs through the financial center of the country; N of Union Square (14th St.) it passes a merchandising section; further N around Herald Square there are large department stores; finally around Times Square (42d St.), which has undergone significant redevelopment, it enters the theater district, or the "Great White Way," the most storied portion of Broadway. Points of interest along Broadway include Trinity Church (Wall St.); St. Paul's Chapel, built 1766 (near City Hall); the Woolworth Building (at Barclay St.); the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (64th—66th streets); Columbia Univ. (113th—121st streets); the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center (168th St.); and Van Cortlandt Park (at the north end of the city). Broadway was laid out by the Dutch and was the principal street of New Amsterdam; its northern stretches in Manhattan were formerly called Bloomingdale Road.

    See D. W. Dunlap, On Broadway (1990).
