After George Street West was widened in the 1930s, the name Broadway soon caught on, though the road had been the gateway to Sydney since early colonial days. A microscosm of the city, this place has seen industry, poverty, religion, commerce and redevelopment and repurposing of its buildings and surrounding areas.
