MIDTOWN WEST

Times Square / Theater District and Theater Row / Garment District / Hell’s Kitchen

Story of the Neighborhood . . .

With a constant flow of frenzied crowds of tourists, bustling excitement and big ticket Broadway shows, Midtown West embodies the energy of “Bright Lights, Big City” known the world over. From The Empire State Building to Times Square to Rockefeller Center, Midtown West is overflowing with iconic New York landmarks and attractions. The Theater District hosts some of the best productions in the world, from longstanding Broadway hits like The Phantom of the Opera to new re-imaginings of old favorites like Lin Manuel-Miranda’s Hamilton, there is no end to your selection. Times Square glistens with neon signs and theatre marquees like The Great White Way and TKTS, where throngs of people gather and line up hoping to score the hottest ticket in town—at a discount! Buskers dressed as film characters line the streets, waiting for their photo to be taken.
Fifth Avenue, regarded as the demarcation between Midtown East and West, is lined with luxury and brand name shopping, where you can have “breakfast” at Tiffany’s, or be dazzled by the windows of Saks Fifth Avenue, Cartier, Harry Winston, Bulgari, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Bergdorf Goodman. Once your retail appetite has been satiated, you can duck into the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) to see modern art masterpieces or stop by St. Thomas Church for a concert.
Along Central Park South, the border between Midtown and Central Park, is the Plaza Hotel. This century-old luxury hotel features a castle-like exterior and offers some of the most elegant rooms in Manhattan along with the hotel’s iconic afternoon tea at the famed Palm Court. Wandering west along Central Park South toward 57th Street is one of the most famous concert venues in the United States, Carnegie Hall, built in 1891. It is also the source of the joke: “How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice!” But seriously, if you attend a performance, it will be clear that everyone has indeed “practiced!”
