  • History:

    The New Amsterdam Theatre, unique in its Art Nouveau architecture, was erected in 1903 at 214 W. 42nd Street. Most notably, Florenz Ziegfeld began presenting his legendary Follies productions here in 1913. The New Amsterdam became a New York City landmark in 1982, but the theatre’s interior was in poor condition from the building’s damaged roof. Following a complete restoration by the Walt Disney Company, the theatre stands today as a designated New York City landmark.
