New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Broadway at 35th Street
— 34th Street district —
My name is Lee Schubert. Shortly after my brother moved to New York City from Syracuse, in 1900, I followed. We leased the Herald Square Theatre on Broadway at 35th Street – a success from the start. Later our brother J.J. joined us. We went to build and manage many of Broadway’s well-known theatrical venues, including the Sam S. Schubert Theatre which is still in operation on 44th Street.

- Green Book, December 1914, on the closing of the Herald Square Theatre.
