Midtown, New York.
Collapse map / See photo gallery

Stretching from Central Park to 40th Street and from Eighth Avenue to the East River, Midtown is not only one of New York’s largest neighborhoods, but also the epicenter of the city’s bright-lights, big-city grandeur that guarantees a tidal wave of activity and chaotic crowds every day and night of the week.

Radiating with energy, the area is packed with landmarks, from famous hotels like The Plaza and Waldorf Astoria and the shopping meccas of Fifth Avenue and Rockefeller Center, to the entertainment crossroads of Broadway and Times Square with their flashing neon lights and giant billboards.

During the day, hordes of fashionable shoppers and business people jostle for space with wide-eyed tourists, as a deluge of taxis and pedestrians congest the streets and sidewalks.

At night, in-the-know drinkers head to chic hotels for cocktails in elegant lobby bars in Midtown East, while Midtown West brings on a torrent of sex shops and dive bars, and the gritty clientele that comes with them.

The Holy Grail of Midtown’s nightlife, however, may just be Madison Square Garden, an immense arena over Penn Station that welcomes patrons from all walks of life, whether they’re looking to cheer on the Knicks and St. John’s or rock out to the biggest names in music.

Always bustling, Midtown is an ideal neighborhood not only for tourists who want to experience the “real” New York, but also for city dwellers ready to appreciate the never-ending entertainment options.
