Broadway is a street best known for the portion that runs through the borough of Manhattan in New York City, it runs 15 miles through Manhattan and The Bronx, exiting north from the city to run an additional 18 miles through the municipalities of Yonkers, Hastings-On-Hudson, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Tarrytown and terminating north of Sleepy Hollow in Westchester County.
Broadway was originally the Wickquasgeck Trail, carved into Manhattan by its Native American inhabitants. This trail originally snaked through swamps and rocks along the length of Manhattan Island. It is the oldest north–south main thoroughfare in New York City, dating to the first New Amsterdam settlement. The name Broadway is the English literal translation of the Dutch name, Breede weg.
