It is here, in the heart of the City, that so many visitors have been captivated by the ambition pulsing through New York. With its avenues crammed with honking taxis and the City’s busiest pavements, Midtown is both the geographic and the iconic centre of Manhattan. It also boasts the City’s most statuesque skyscrapers, including the Empire State, Chrysler and Seagram buildings, as well as more recent additions such as Norman Foster’s Hearst Tower and the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park.
So much more than a place to do business, Midtown is also the part of town with the most recognizable attractions, largest stores, finest restaurants and greatest cultural institutions. Within just a few blocks you can catch a Tony award-winning musical, take in a performance from the New York Philharmonic, catch a glimpse of Henri Matisse’s Dance at MoMA, treat yourself to dinner and a slice of history at the 21 Club, browse the extravagant window displays on Fifth Avenue or simply be captivated by the glittering lights and bustling energy of Times Square.
