Full description
Starting on the fabled 42nd Street, see why it's called the Crossroads of the World. Follow the timeline of its origin to its present day grandeur. This area of Times Square is home to four of the world's busiest franchises locations (Red Lobster, McDonalds, Applebee, and AMC theater). Next, visit where the original Ghostbusters movie was made. It's also where the movies Sex and the City, the Day After Tomorrow, Spiderman, and Maid in Manhattan were filmed. From here, you'll discover how New York City became the Skyscraper capital of the World.

Marveling at how Harry Houdini conquered magic, see where for the first time a giant 15,000 lbs elephant was made to vanish into thin air. Relive the glory days of Sinatra, Sardi's, Studio 54, and the world's most famous Kiss. Visit the legendary institution where Jennifer Aniston, Ellen Barkin, Liza Minnelli, Ving Rhames, Ben Vereen, Robert De Niro, and Al Pacino honed their craft. In addition, it's where the movie "Fame" was made. Look up at the "Pilllars of Diamonds" that mark the entrance to New York's diamond district.

Bathe in the afterglow of the most famous New Year's eve celebration. Climb the radiant "Stairway of Stars" and glaze upon the lights of Broadway. Hear the hilarious account of how a M&M candy enraged an urban cowboy.
