"Arts and Theater Hub of the City"

Although its a small stretch of road, roughly a quarter of a mile beginning at Witherell Street, and ending at Randolph Street, there is still much to do on Broadway.

One of Detroit's premier recreational facilities is located on Broadway, The Boll Family YMCA which offers rock climbing, state of the art recreational facilities, and exercise equipment, including a pool, as well as Child Care services. Located directly adjacent to the YMCA is the Broadway People Mover Stop (the people mover is an overground public transportation system, similar to a subway which has stops all around Detroit).

In terms of entertainment, The Detroit Opera House is located on Broadway, and for the individual that is looking to relax, and have a few drinks after work, there is the Detroit Beer Co. which occupies the first two floors of the recently restored Hartz Building on Broadway just steps from both Comerica Park and Ford Field.

For a quick bite to eat, you can head over to Small Plates, and for more formal dining, there's Vicente's Cuban Cuisine, about a 2 minute walk from Broadway, on Library Street.
