Another way to see the Ambassador from the outside is on a Theater District walking tour, which allows you to see New York City attractions while learning about the legends of Broadway.

It was amazing and Lucas was so knowledgeable about all the Broadway theatres
Everything was memorable. We will recommend this tour to everyone especially to all of our theatre friends that come to New York. I found out all about theatres that I never knew and even my theatre loving kid learned some things too

Patrick was wonderful! So much knowledge of Broadway. We learned so much that one would never learn unless on a private trip like this. Well worth the money spent. Thank you Patrick!

Our tour guide, Patrick, was a wealth of knowledge, anecdotes, historical background, all interspersed with his obvious love of theater. We learned so much in such a short period of time...and enjoyed every minute.
