About the Neighborhood

It might throb with besuited office bees by day, but Manhattan’s midsection can be surprisingly calming when the commuters go home. Come nights and weekends, there’s something contemplative about wandering between its empty, skyscraping buildings—if, that is, you’re far enough from Times Square. Edge closer to Broadway (without actually getting there) and you’ll find boites, steakhouses and theaters that, whether grungy or highbrow, feel like the New York of yore—but with a dash of neon buzz.
