DescriptionManhattan’s Midtown is New York City’s tourist mecca. Midtown and the other neighborhoods above 14th Street and below 59th Street are rife with the city’s most recognizable tourist destinations, corporate headquarters and finest hotels. It's home to the lions guarding the public library, the starry domes of Grand Central Terminal and the Rockettes of Radio City Music Hall. Midtown is where theatergoers can take in a Broadway show, shoppers can while away the hours ambling along 5th Avenue and culture hounds can spend the afternoon in the Museum of Modern Art.
For those seeking the ultimate in views, there's the Top of the Rock Observation Deck at Rockefeller Center. Looking for something a little off the beaten path? Check out the art galleries in Chelsea or the fabric stores and notion shops of the Garment District. Midtown also offers some of the finest restaurants in the city. You can't get far from a postcard moment no matter where you are in Midtown Manhattan.
