This business district welcomes the number of tourists in Manhattan, thanks to its eclectic shopping, dining, and nightlife options, as well as famous attractions like the Rockefeller Center, Times Square, and Grand Central Terminal.
Midtown features some of the most prestigious residential towers in New York City. These include Billionaire’s Row – a set of ultra -luxury skyscrapers constructed or in new developments roughly along the southern end of Central Park. A number of these buildings, such as 432 Park and One57, are in the super tall category and are among the tallest buildings in the world.
Midtown also offers properties that cater mostly to global pied-a-terre owners and young professionals, particularly in Clinton in Midtown West, and Sutton Place and Turtle Bay in Midtown East.
Neighborhoods in Midtown Manhattan include:
- Sutton Place and Beekman Place
Two of Midtown’s most sought after residential addresses feature elegant buildings along the East River, east to west of First Avenue. Many buildings have great views of the East River and the Queensboro Bridge, as well as easy access to the FDR Drive, a tiny oasis in this bustling area.
Sutton Place has two public parks. One of these, Sutton Place Park South, is home to One Sutton Place South, a neo-Georgian style mansion that’s considered one of the city’s grandest addresses. Two townhouse rows between 57th & 58th streets share a large communal garden overlooking the East River.
Beekman Place runs from 49th to 51st Streets, and consists of two blocks of ivy-covered townhouses and co-op buildings. The neighborhood was named after the Beekman family, who built their mansion, Mount Pleasant, here in 1764. The grand apartment house One Beekman Place was built in 1929. It opens directly to the river, and the south facade overlooks the United Nations and its garden.
These two areas boast many retail stores including the vast Bridgemarket Food Emporium right below the Queensboro Bridge. Sutton East Tennis Club, an enclosed winter tennis facility, is also found here.
- Clinton/Hells Kitchen
This neighborhood is located in Midtown West and runs from 34th to 57th Streets, from Eighth Avenue to the Hudson. What was once a rundown neighborhood is now a truly vibrant area. It’s home to a mix of young professionals, long time residents, actors and artists, who treasure the proximity to the Theatre district. Ninth Avenue is lined with low key bars and restaurants. Galleries have opened in the area, leading some residents to boast that the neighborhood may become the next SoHo without the attitude.
- Murray Hill
Located between Fifth And the FDR from 34th Street to 40th Street, Murray Hill is considered by some to be the most ideal residential area nearest to the Midtown business district. The neighborhood combines elegant townhouses on the side streets, attractive apartment buildings, plenty of restaurants and cafes, and great transportation. Lord and Taylor is here, as well as Grand Central Station, The Met Life building, and the New York Public Library. The Morgan library features a Beaux Arts annex, which is one of the most romantic mansions in the city.
