What isn’t in Midtown Manhattan? The most famous area of the city has honking horns, briskly bustling sidewalks, and Times Square. Fifth Avenue flagships Rockefeller Center (ice rink and a huge Christmas tree). Grand Central Station, Museum of Modern Art, Patrick’s Cathedral, Radio City and on and on. The city’s business center, Midtown, has high-end retail (Bergdorf’s, Tiffany, Cartier) and office towers filled with media, publishing and communications firms. On the side streets are some residential buildings, older co-ops and upscale condo developments. Energetic, as only New York can be.
The epicenter of New York.
Non-stop restaurant- and theater-going.
Bryant Park, a lovely retreat behind the 42nd Street New York Public Library (the one with the big, stone lions in front).
