Welcome to Midtown
An international hub that features New York City’s biggest attractions.
The glamorous, energetic Midtown is an international hub of activity and perhaps New York City’s most touristy location. With everything from Times Square
to Rockefeller Center
and the Empire State Building
, Midtown is the ultimate New York destination and is what comes to many people’s minds when they think of New York City. When you live here, you’ll never experience a dull moment in your life.
Midtown is one of Manhattan’s most densely packed communities, meaning you’ll seldom find individual homes and are more likely to see luxury apartments and suites. However, the lack of space you might find in a multi-level home is made up of all the attractions and sights located right outside your door. You’ll have immediate access to some of the world’s best entertainment, restaurants, and bars — places that others travel hours to experience.
What to Love
- Home to architectural landmarks and world-renowned attractions
- International destination for tourists and residents alike
- Bright lights, bustling streets, and energetic citizens
In Midtown, you’ll always be on the go and looking for your next best adventure. It’s the embodiment of the phrase The City That Never Sleeps, and it’s within walking distance to the best entertainment, shows, restaurants, and bars in the city. Midtown offers residents a dense urban feel, where the traffic is constant and the noise ever-present. It’s the perfect location for go-getting individuals who don’t want a sedentary lifestyle, and for young professionals who prefer grabbing a drink out after work instead of going home.
Dining, Shopping and Entertainment
Taste exquisite French and New American cuisine at The Modern, a highly sought-after dining locale with garden views of the Museum of Modern Art. For a fine dining experience focused on seafood, Oceana brings bright, colorful flavors to your plate and is always innovating its menus. While it might not look like much, Junior's Restaurant & Bakery is one of Midtown’s hottest spots, complete with an outdoor patio, bar, BBQ, and cheesecakes that are guaranteed to bring you back for more.
Hudson Yards has over 100 shops and 25 dining spots — it’s the ultimate shopping location for all you need and more. It’s got some of the biggest retail brands in the country, as well as small boutiques that rival household names. For another mall with dozens of retailers, 75 Rockefeller Plaza and Manhattan Mall are two great spots to check out. There are also hundreds of shops for you to try as you roam the city streets — everything from high-end designer brands to small-owned boutiques. If you’re looking to make a day out of shopping, wander the bustling streets of New York for some terrific finds.
Things to Do
The Empire State Building is an architectural masterpiece that is known across the world and is frequently visited by tourists thanks to its spectacular views. Whether you’re new to the city or have been a local for your entire life, visiting the Empire State Building is always a great way to add some fun to your day. Times Square brings people from all over the globe to gawk at its lit-up billboards, the infamous New Year’s Eve ball drop, and Hollywood celebrity performances.
The Rockefeller Center is a fantastic spot to spend the entire day taking in gorgeous views of the city, becoming immersed in art and history, participating in numerous activities, and dining on incredible cuisine. Test out your ice-skating skills alongside the biggest tree in the city, shop the best boutiques and luxury brands, go to a live taping of a late-night talk show or visit the exceptional St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Radio City Music Hall is a can’t-miss venue where you’ll sit in a 1932 Art Deco theater and watch the city’s best shows, musicals, and entertainment live.
