Midtown West

Midtown West goes from 34th Street to 57th Street, and from Fifth Avenue to the Hudson River. It’s at the heart of Manhattan’s business and recreation, and the home of what are some of the best known symbols of New York, like Times Square, the most iconic and recognizable neighborhood in the world; the Broadway Theatre District that attracts and entertains millions; the Empire State Building, a historic Art Deco masterpiece standing 102 stories, and one of the seven wonders of the modern world; Rockefeller Center, one of the world's largest building complexes, known for Radio City Music Hall and the famous ice-skating rink; Carnegie Hall, built in 1891, and one of the most prestigious performance spaces in the world; Bryant Park, a designated public park since the late 17th Century, popular for its Great Lawn and public cultural events, and so much more.

The area affords an easy commute to work by foot or subway, and is close to Central Park on the northern end when it’s time to relax and play. Ninth Avenue is lined with great restaurants. As for housing, high rise buildings and doorman condos, many with wonderful views of the river and beyond, have merged in the formerly low-rise area west of Fifth Avenue, offering a variety of NYC apartments for rent. The center of Midtown West, Clinton features new premier condominiums like the Orion and Platinum. There are plenty of ways in and out of Midtown West, including Penn Station, the Lincoln Tunnel, Port Authority Bus Terminal, the New York Waterway ferry and Eighth Avenue subway line.
