NYC & Company, the official destination marketing organization and convention and visitors bureau for the five boroughs of New York City, is inviting New Yorkers and visitors to re-discover the “Crossroads of the World” and beyond as Broadway continues its return. In addition, new and newly reopened hotels, restaurants, tours and attractions, and cultural offerings give travellers myriad reasons to re-engage with Times Square

This past week, Broadway shows such as “Waitress” and “Hadestown” reopened, while “Chicago,” “Hamilton,” “Wicked” and “The Lion King” opened Tuesday, September 14.
The return of Broadway in Times Square signals a key moment in New York City’s recovery from the pandemic and a cause for celebration by New Yorkers and visitors alike, said NYC & Company in a press announcement.    

Note: Health protocols require audience members to wear masks and show proof of vaccination, or a recent negative coronavirus test if the patron is under the age of 12. These rules are in place through at least October and apply to all 41 theatres.  

To celebrate the triumphant return of Broadway, a three-day outdoor Broadway festival, “Curtain Up!” will take place September 17 – 19 in Times Square; it will include live performances, panel discussions and concerts, culminating with a live, free outdoor concert with Broadway favourites on September 19.


Beyond the theatres, here’s what’s happening on the hotel front in Times Square:

The New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square recently underwent a renovation that included refurbishments of all the hotel’s bars, restaurants, ballrooms, meetings rooms and retails spaces. It also added a 240-foot skybridge spanning the hotel atrium.

The recently opened Arlo Midtown has a nine-story atrium framed by a custom wooden sculpture wall and a rooftop bar with skyline and Hudson River views. Also new, the Margaritaville Resort Times Square offers island-themed rooms, a pool deck, bars with (of course) tropical craft cocktails, and additional dining and refreshment options, including the Margaritaville New York restaurant.

Designed as a cultural hub for the Broadway community, Civilian NYC will open this fall in the heart of the Theatre District. It will have draping and marquee lighting, a secret garden and second floor lounges via spiral staircase. The 27-story, David Rockwell-designed high-rise will offer 203 guestrooms.  

Located in the historic Crown Building on 5th Avenue, the first home of Museum of Modern ArtAman New York is slated to open later this fall. The hotel will offer restaurants, a Garden Terrace & Bar, a private members club, the three-floor Aman Spa, and a Jazz Club and Wine Room.
