Description
Manhattan's Midtown area goes as far north as 59th Street, Hudson River to the east, the East River to the west, and the southern border ends somewhere between 14th Street and 30th Streets. In many ways, this is the epicenter of New York City as it is home to many well-known landmarks like the 77-story Chrysler Building, Empire State building, and the recently restored Grand Central Terminal.

As New York's largest central business district, Midtown is also New York's largest central business district as well as the busiest single U.S. commercial district. Here, are the corporate headquarters for such companies as Barnes and Noble, Ernst and Young, and Viacom. There are also many foreign subsidiary operations like Air France and the Sumitomo Corporation. Midtown is also growing in the area of finance, second only to downtown's Financial District.

Three out of four major television networks are headquartered in Midtown, along 5th Avenue. NBC Studios, which has live television tapings as well as many offices and retail shops that sell souvenirs, is located inside Rockefeller Center. CBS Corporation also has offices nearby.

The Grand Central Terminal is another place that offers a wide variety of dining options as well as shopping and a place to walk around. This train terminal is like no other as it features stores like Banana Republic, Kenneth Cole, and Tumi. There is also the world-famous Oyster Bar and Restaurant as well as New York favorites like Junior's Bakery.

Radio City Music Hall has many exciting live shows and tapings. Located on the corner of 6th Avenue and 50th Street, this is not only home to the world-famous Rockettes but shows like America's got Talent and contemporary musical acts like Sara Brightman and The Weeknd.

Midtown is also home to a few good museums that include the American Folk Art Museums, the Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Television and Radio, which is near 5th Ave., and 53rd Street and has an outstanding collection of vintage media. To find rare manuscripts, the Morgan Library, on 36th Street is a good resource.

The New York Public Library is located at the corner of 42nd Street and 5th Avenue. This famous landmark is free to visit and offers hour-long tours.

When it comes to places to eat, there is just so much to choose from, as there are many noteworthy food trucks along 5th Avenue, simple pleasures like Burger Joint in Central Park and award-winning restaurants like Bar American on 52nd Street.

With all the hustle and bustle that goes on in Midtown, the Murray Hill area is an ideal residential area that is near the Midtown tunnel. There are many brownstones and other properties that are priced slightly less than other parts of Lower Manhattan.
