Broadway: New York’s Palace Theater rises 30 feet off the ground, freeing up street-level space for retailers

NEW YORK CITY, NY (KABC) — A Broadway institution is now on a whole new level.

New York’s historic Palace Theater is now 30 feet taller, thanks to a high-tech preservation project.

Thirty-four hydraulic lifting poles pushed the 14 million pound theater box to the third floor of the building, freeing up street-level space for retailers.

The Palace Theater opened in 1913 and is one of the oldest theaters on Broadway.
