Heartfelt tour in a grandiose setting. Knowledgeable guides and a majestic theatre made this a memorable tour. I particularly liked having access to the main stage, and being able to take photographs before the room filled up. I recommend the tour.

You can go to the ticket window at the venue. No fees, and they sometimes offer seats with less than perfect views (not available online) for cheap.

We like Applejack Diner, 1725 Broadway. Not fancy, but delicious home cooking and great service.
