“America's Most Unusual Nightclub” - 506 Broadway

"Welcome to the world-famous Finocchio's, where the most beautiful women onstage are men." Opened in 1936, Finocchio's cabaret featured female impersonators, both gay and straight, performing in, elaborateshows that drew in sailors and tourists alike, as well as the watchful eye of local law enforcement. Fortunately, such run-ins with the law were few and far between, and Finocchio's over the yearS prided itself on being a clean, orderly entertainment theater among the seedier venues of Broadway. Finocchio's eventually closed in 1999 after 63 years in business.
