Neighborhood Description

Spanning from Sixth Avenue to the East River, the buzzing neighborhood of Midtown East is one of Manhattan’s liveliest areas during work hours.

But as soon as the clock strikes 5PM and workers head home, the crowds plummet and virtually disappear. So if you check out your prospective Midtown East apartment during the day, you may also want to stop by at night before you turn in your new lease agreement. Still, the neighborhood’s residents – mostly older professionals – enjoy having both fantastic conveniences available to them during the day and experiencing a quieter, more reserved vibe at night.

From Grand Central Terminal to the southeastern side of Central Park, Midtown East encompasses a wide variety of sights and sounds that make it a must-stop destination for many tourists. While it may not have the glamour and bright lights of Midtown West, Times Square’s eastern counterpart has offered just as many attractions for decades. One of the hallmarks of the famous NYC skyline, the Chrysler Building has called Midtown East home since its construction was completed in 1930. Also located in the neighborhood, the even older Flatiron Building has been cited as one of the world’s most unique skyscrapers. Its innovation has been heralded by everyone from an admiring 1930s NYC public to the noted futurist H. G. Wells, whose mouth was "agape" after being impressed by its architecture.

Midtown East has appeared frequently in film and television, from Men in Black to Gossip Girl (filmed in Grand Central Terminal) to The Devil Wears Prada to Spider-Man (which used the Chrysler Building in its skyline footage). In addition to this pop-cultural relevance, most inhabitants choose to live in Midtown East because of its great access to the rest of the city or because their offices are a stone’s throw away. Also, many of its high-rise apartment buildings offer all possible amenities, including doormen, pet-friendly accommodations, dishwasher, washer/dryer, and more. Add easy transportation to that list, too.

The neighborhood stretches from 40th Street to 59th Street. The primary subway lines are the 4, 5 and 6 trains, which run along Lexington Avenue. With Grand Central Terminal nearby, there are also plenty of local and out-of-city bus lines available.
