It is situated in the heart of Cochin City, adjacent to Marine Drive. Once upon a time, Broadway was the widest road in town, though it’s a narrow street, name still exists.
Broadway maintains its traditional charm still. Wholesale and retail shops line the street and sell incredible variety of products including shoes, bags, toys, jewellery, handicrafts, nuts, spices, utensils, clothes, furniture, books and so on.
It is one of the bargaining shopping hubs of Kochi. During festive seasons, people of all ages shop as the market here offers great deals.
The Corporation of Cochin has initiated a new project under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission to preserve the heritage of Broadway, to renovate the decaying structures and to control traffic efficiently.
If the proposed nightlife zone comes into being, Broadway gets broader in terms of shopping.
