Quotation by George M. Cohan

Give my regards to Broadway,
Remember me to Herald Square,

George M. Cohan (1878–1942), U.S. songwriter, performer. "Give my Regards to Broadway" (song), Little Johnny Jones (show, 1904).

Cohan's breakthrough hit was a failure when it opened on Broadway, though it achieved a lasting success when it returned there in 1905 following a nationwide tour. The song was one of a series of compositions on the theme of Broadway, though at the time of writing, Cohan was just twenty-six, and very much an outsider. In 1959, a statue of him was erected on Broadway. Give my Regards to Broad Street was the title of Paul McCartney's musical film in 1984.
