Description
Midtown South is a busy commercial section in Lower Manhattan area bound north by 42nd Street, Park Avenue on the east, south to Houston Street , and 12th Avenue on the west.

This area includes the Port Authority Bus Terminal, Pennsylvania (or as its better known, Penn) Station, many Broadway theaters, the historic Flatiron building and Herald Square. When traveling west of Fifth Avenue, there are more subway stations than on the east side, which allows people better access to all Lower Manhattan has to offer.

The Port Authority Bus Terminal is the nation's largest bus terminal as well as the busiest on the entire planet. It occupies the blocks between 8th and 9th Avenues, and 40th and 42nd streets, and is connected to the City's many transit systems. In 2012, this Midtown South tourist attraction had foot traffic of about 65 million. Close to Times Square, this place put you close to all the action. Available taxis are in front of Eighth Avenue. Multiple subway lines are close to the bus terminal. The A, C and E trains are on the lower level of the bus terminal, which is one block west of Times Square.

Penn Station is New York's busiest commuter hub as it serves these passenger railroad lines - Amtrak, Long Island Railroad, and the New Jersey Transit. It also connects to the subways and Madison Square Garden.

In 1989, the Flatiron Building was recognized as a National Historic Landmark and one of the most distinct structures in Manhattan. Currently, this operational commercial building is home to publishing companies like Macmillan and St. Martin's Press. The Flatiron Building is featured in scenes from the NBC sitcom Friends.

Herald Square is the epicenter of the shopping universe. Here, popular retailers like HandM, Macy's, and many other small and larger stores that feature exotic cuisine, nightclubs, and numerous other things to do.

Midtown South has affordable apartments are available but since this area is mostly a tourist attraction, selection is somewhat limited. The majority of co-ops, condominium, and rentals are studio, one, and two-bedroom apartments.
