6. Lyceum Theater Apartment

Lyceum Theater which one had a hidden apartment

The Lyceum Theater on 45th Street next to Times Square had a hidden apartment above the theater. This residence was occupied by impresario Daniel Frohman, the producer, and manager who founded the Lyceum. From his apartment, Frohman could oversee the various shows in production.

Today, the apartment houses the Schubert Archives. You can see what it looked like in Frohman’s time and what it looks like today in this video. The Lyceum was the first Broadway theater to achieve landmark status and it is one of the longest-running theaters in the city.
