With some of the largest stores and busiest streets in the city, this slice of the metropolis can be described as the heart of New York City. Midtown Center spans from 42nd street all the way up to the south side of Central Park, or 59th street, and between Park and 8th Avenues.

It’s home to some the city’s tallest skyscrapers, which headquarter global conglomerates, five star hotels and three major television networks. The sidewalks of Midtown are dominated by business people on the weekdays and packed with tourists during seasons both on and off-peak. If Midtown Manhattan is the single busiest commercial district in the entire country, then Midtown Center is the very core, which explains its prime and luxurious real estate.

More about Midtown Center

Midtown Center boasts no shortage of indulgent cuisine. Restaurants such as ‘21’ Club, Le Bernardin and the Russian Tea Room are world renowned, while more casual establishments such as Carnegie Deli or Sardi’s are still just as mouthwatering. High-end fashion is plentiful in Midtown Center, with department stores Barney’s, Brooks Brothers and Bergdorf Goodman being prime examples and there’s even F.A.O. Schwartz for Manhattan youngsters and visitors alike. If that’s not enough luxury, you’ll be in the perfect location to take a scroll through the Diamond District, a strip of 5th Avenue where windows and warehouses store the world’s most beautiful jewels.

In Midtown Center, you’ll have the legendary Rockefeller Center at your doorstep. The ice-skating rink and plaza are exquisite in the Christmas time and the view from the top is impressive all throughout the year. Nearby you’ll find the New York Public Library, a historical New York landmark and a majestic piece of architecture that is still very much a functioning library. Also on 5th Avenue is St. Patrick’s Cathedral, a sacred and breathtaking church that can inspire even the busiest New Yorker. With endless stimulation and activity, it is clear why Midtown Center is one of the most expensive places in the world to live. Despite the noise pollution and turbo fast pace of the street level, there are plenty of perks. Most of these high-rises will have doormen so if security, privacy and getting packages are priorities, these buildings will be the perfect fit for you. Neighboring districts include Midtown East, Midtown South Central, the Theatre District, Turtle Bay and Murray Hill. Artsy Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle are also a short walk away, and the gorgeous Central Park provides easy access to both the Upper East and West Sides. Pretty much every subway line runs through Midtown Center, and a supply of cabs is endless.
