Manhattan Before Disney

LUKE: Got a great book, it has walking tours of old historic Manhattan. You know, before Disney got a hold of it.

I don’t know if you can say Disney “got a hold” of Manhattan, but they do have a significant presence there, like other major corporations. Their offices were at this time on the Upper West Side, there was a Disney store on Fifth Avenue [pictured], a TV station in Times Square, and the New Amsterdam Theatre on Broadway, to name a few. The Disney cruise lines also dock at a pier on the Hudson River.
