Tour guide is Richard Schave (Esotouric/LAVA). We will be walking along South Broadway, between 9th and 8th Streets, focusing on the theaters as well as the original retail stores along the block. This month we will be joined by Poet/Real Estate Broker, Ed Rosenthal, for both insights and some verse on Broadway and the changing landscape in the Historic Core.
