val of tho sentiments of those who
liavB had the opportunity of compar
ing tho most celebrated thoroughfare
in tho United Htates with others mure
or less known to fame in foreign
countries. Kvon the New Yorker, who
takni for granted almost all tho good
and bad equalities of this city, grows
enthusiastic when llrnadway it men

Is tho epitome of New York. Other i
streets and sections havo made more!

as the growth of the city has contlnu-
ed nortnward the famous old street
ii us sieauuy maintaiueii Us supremacy
which is more (Irmly grounded now
than over before. It Is significant
that one never hears an actor singing
"Take Mo Hack to I'lflh Avenue."
It's always liroadway. For all that
Fifth Avenue has been written about
and preached against its fume, like
that of any fashionable street, Is
transitory. Kvon In its palmiest days
Fifth Avenue represented nothing
characteristic except wealth. Now
business is rapidly driving out the
costly residences, forcing tiiem into
tide streets and to tho newer fashion
able sections fnrtheur uptown. Almost
the entlro length of tho avenue below
Central Park is already given over to
business and to the kind of busim-sH
that keeps daylight hours olllco build
ings, wholesale salesrooms and retail
"hops. After nightfall it is compara
tively sik'ut and deserted.

army of toilers ami pleasure deckers
is rolling down liroadway to take up
the burdens of another day.
liroadway is a long street. It ox
tends front tho southernmost tip of
Manhattan to its extreme northern
point when the Harlem and the Mini
mi n join to shut it oir from tho main
land. Tnls Is a distanco of sumo four
teen or fifteen miles. As a matter of
fact tho street retains Its iiaiuo and
Identity oil the way along tho eastern
bank or tho Hudson to Albany, 110
miles. Along Its course within tho
lmnndurles of the Island It exemplifies
every activity of tint city and nation
of which it forms a part'. More than
1,500,000 people live slung It and 10,
000,000 trips it day are mado on foot
and in vehicles along and below Its
mirfacii. Thirty million huvlucs trans
actions involving amounts Cuini a
penny to millions of dollars take
placti along it during every twenty
four hours. It is a business, shop,
ping, theatre, hotel and residence

of the furthest uptown big depart

Street too is the most crowded spot in
tho city or in tho world. Ity careful
compulation more than 1,,"00,000 per
sons pass horn every day and this
number will lie still greater when the
now Pennsylvania terminal is com
pleted ami tho tunnels under the North
and Knst rivers meet near bv.
Above Thirty fourth .Street extends
"the Ifialto," "The Great White
Way," "Champagne Alley," to quote
a few of the pet numoi New Yorkers
havo given to their fuvorltv stretch of
liroadway. Thin is the region of
hotels, restaurants and theaters. Long,
aero .Squnro Is tho capital of this gay
principality. Less than a century ago

acres of the old Astor farm Wero al

More money Is spent every day with
in tho space of these half-dozen blocks
for food, drink and amttsoment than
lit any lik area in tho world. Long
acm .Square Is the core of the evening
life of the Metropolis, where tile lights
flash brightest, where the crowds of
pleasure seekers ure thickest and
whom all that Is typical of (he gay,
careless, fashiiiuiible life is most in
evidence. Following Hroadway 's up
town course one passes block after
block In the region about the lower
end of Central Park given over almost
entirely to the automobile industry.
"(liiHolone Alley," It is called In tho
local vernacular. .Still further nort.i
Is tho region of great apartment Ito
tels, the homes of thoso resldonts of
tho city who tiro among neither the
richest nor the poorest, extending
block after block in structures of tow
ering height for several miles. Whom
the street begins to mount tho heights
that frm too northern part of Man
hattan it enters upon another phase,
passing great institutions, the lofty
nrehes of tho Cnthodrnl of 8t. John,
the halls of Columbia University, and
further up the College of tho City of
New York. Open spaces begin to ap
pear. There are privnto residence as
well as apartment houses. Hroadway
here overlooks too lordly Hudson and
the Palisades on the Jersey shore, and
along this part of Its course, from tho
upper heights to the northern end of
the Island at Hpuyleu Duyvll will
stum! in tho future lit all probability
thn finest and costliest of New York's
homes, residences of tho fashionable
liroadway has two ndvanlacfls
whioli many other famous streets lack
a worthy lieu tin nir ami ndlni. Ai
Its lower end Is Mattery Park, a lipot
of greenery looking out mtoit tho
busy waters of tho harbor and at Its
upper terminus is to bo placed tho
beautiful Hudson memorial bridge
which will form a fitting gateway to
the c'ty from the landward side.
Hrnadway will always bo the sheet
of larlet and processions, the na-
Imti'il p.inide ground mid the national
i;ch in Hie tiia'ter ( age Hmadwiiy
(us ii, i menu re-)'d. Ill tue early dii
"f the il it was the natural liigliunv
from the lower to the upper part ot
the Island, iiifc the ground on both
sides, now occupied by skyscrapers,
was then only iimrshland. Down to
HU'J the thoroughfare bore a succes
sloii of appellations. First it was call
ed simply the "main road." Later it
becauio the Public Kouil, tile lloog
Wog or Highway, It was also called
the llceron .Straat, or Street of the
.Masters. From about ItilO on, how
ever, it became generally known as
Hroadway, although its identity was
established much earlier. Perhaps in
a way thee early names correspond
to the newer titles given this much
nicknamed thoroughfare. On Ilroad
way it was that too llrst clergyman
preached regularly in a little wooden
church near what Is now Pearl Ktreet.
It was near what is now Pino street
that Col. do Puyster in 1 !." built what
was described as a "palatial three
story dwelling mansion," Forty-four
years later In, 17!W, a -public: market
house was erected in the middle of
Hroadway opposite Liberty street. It
was a gigantic structure forty-two
feet long and twenty-five feet wide,
lint for some reason it was never
Of no other spot In thn world are
so many men able to say "If I'd only
bought that property thirty years ago
for a song, I'd bit a millionaire." Tue
story of Hroadway Is one of unnum
bered fortunes made by those who
did Invest, and as the city moves
northward it still applies. Hack in
1002 lots on Hroadway were sold as
far as Fulton street for about $20
each. Today thoe same lots are worth
a hundred thousand times the original
cost. Purchasers were required to
erect buildings not less than two
stories in height and in some caes to
cover the entire front of the lot. To
day an owner of Hroadway property
wuo did not do more than this vahni
tarily would be considered iiiMine, so
great are rental values.
