It Was Once Called “Great White Way”

Since the streets of Broadway were the first to get lighted with white bulbs in the 1890s, it was called the great white way. Moreover, the signs used by businesses on Broadway were also illuminated by bulbs.

These lights have a great history as well. In WWI, the government dimmed the bulbs of Broadway to make up for the shortage of coal. But the public demanded the government to increase the coal ration of New York to restore the shine in Broadway’s lights.
