West Broadway is a north-south street in the New York City borough of Manhattan separated into two parts by Beach Street Park. The northern part begins at Tribeca Park, near the intersection of Sixth Avenue, Walker Street and Beach Street in Tribeca. It runs northbound as a one-way street past Canal Street and becomes two-way at the intersection with Grand Street one block further north. West Broadway then operates as a main north-south thoroughfare through SoHo until its northern end at Houston Street, on the border between SoHo and Greenwich Village. North of Houston Street, it is designated as LaGuardia Place, which continues until Washington Square South.

The southern part of West Broadway runs southbound from TriBeCa Park through the TriBeCa neighborhood, ending at Park Place. Prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks, West Broadway continued southward into the World Trade Center site, ending at Vesey Street. It was once considered "Rotten Row".[1]

Transportation[edit]

The downtown M20 bus runs on West Broadway from the five-way intersection with Varick Street and Leonard Street, where Varick Street merges into West Broadway, until Chambers Street, where it turns right/west off West Broadway.[2]

The Franklin Street and Chambers Street stations of the IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line (1 2 3 trains) are located on West Broadway.[3]
