About Midtown Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Whatever comes to mind when you think of New York is probably located in Midtown. Broadway, Times Square, Madison Square Garden, The Empire State Building, and much more are found in the center of Manhattan. Grand Central Station, Penn Station, and the Port Authority Bus Terminal keep the area bustling with visitors from out of town, while all the commerce ensures that NYC residents will always frequent the area. After all, NYC's central business district is the largest in the world and contains some of the globe's most expensive real estate. Along Fifth Avenue, you'll find rents as high as $3,000 per square foot. But when we're talking about the city's tallest apartments and the majority of its skyscrapers, it's no surprise that prices reach the heights that they do.
