The neighborhood

Midtown East

Art, entertainment, gastronomy, shopping — we could go on, but you get the picture. Midtown East has it all. Iconic skyscrapers stud the skyline around here, from the Chrysler Building to the Empire State Building to Rockefeller Center. Home to some of the best of American and international modern art, MoMA is a staple in every Midtown itinerary. But if live entertainment is more your style, the electric Radio City Music Hall is a venue like no other. For shopping and dining, Fifth and Sixth Avenue are the arteries of this pumping city. And if that wasn’t enough, Central Park is just a stroll away. Welcome to the New York that New York is known for.
