Parking For This Theatre: The closest parking garage for the New Amsterdam Theatre is located at:
264 West 42nd Street
New York, NY 10036
315 West 42nd Street
New York, NY 10036
The closest parking is not always the best as it often takes longer to park and retrieve your vehicle as fellow theatre goers have the same idea.
A better choice of parking may be the second choice or further away by a couple of Avenues.
