WHAT IS BROADWAY?

I’m watching Final Jeopardy today! answer, I came across a whole Broadway story on the New Netherland Institute website. It tells how the Wickquasgeck Native American Trail was renamed from Heere Straat (gentlemen’s street) by the Dutch and later called Broadway by the English.

Music Notes: On “2 or 3 Lines,” a great music blog, there’s an article about The Fantastic Johnny C and his 1967 hit song “Boogaloo Down Broadway.” The message includes this description “Broadway is the oldest north-south thoroughfare in New York. It stretches approximately 33 miles from the southern tip of Manhattan Island north through the Bronx and Westchester County, ending just beyond Sleepy Hollow. Other Broadway songs include “Lullaby of Broadway”, “Give My Regards to Broadway”, “On Broadway”, and “Funky Broadway”.



Alfred is right. He bet $5,499 and finished with $10,999.

Alison went with Tappan Zee Rd. It only cost her a mile, so she maintained second place with $11,200.

Matt got it too. He won $1,044 and won that match with $26,644. Matt’s 2-day total is $55,845.
