The longest and widest pathway on the ship has been dubbed Broadway, replete with a wall of Broadway show posters and an official DOT sign that says Broadway, gifted by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg after a visit to the USS New York on the ship’s first visit for Fleet Week in 2009. (On this inaugural visit, the NYPD accompanied the USS New York with a bevy of air and sea vehicles).

“Broadway” is wide enough for forklifts to run along it going out to the flight deck, and can accommodate combat Marines who can be 2 to 3 feet thick front to back with all their gear. On the USS New York’s sister ships, this walkway has a different nickname. It’s called I-95 on the Arlington, for example!
