Midtown Manhattan

Located between 59th street and 14th street, Midtown Manhattan is packed with business, art, and tourism. With attractions like Times Square, MoMA, Broadway, and more, this area is packed with things to do for both locals and tourists alike.


Atmosphere of Midtown Manhattan

Midtown Manhattan is busy. Although the population is smaller than Upper Manhattan, you wouldn’t know that from walking around. Huge amounts of people travel to Midtown for work and the sheer amount of events happening means there are always tourists out and about.

Once work hours are over, the area becomes slightly less dense, but the bustling nightlife keeps things lively. Though the western and eastern parts of Midtown are a bit more residential and quiet, people are referring to Midtown when they say New York is the city that never sleeps.


Transportation Options in Midtown Manhattan

Midtown Manhattan is the most accessible place in NYC. There are four major transportation hubs that can take you anywhere in the city and beyond. These hubs are:

  • Times Square/Port Authority Bus Terminal: King of the Subway, the only borough you can’t reach from this station is Staten Island. The trains accessible from this station are the 1, 2, 3, 7, N, Q, R, S and W. Port Authority is accessible from Times Square via an underground walkway making the A, C, and E available as well. Port Authority is also a popular bus terminal for Jersey commuters. The S and 7 trains connect Times Square to Bryant Park Station and Grand Central Station.
  • Grand Central Station: A National Landmark that was saved from demolition by Jackie Kennedy in 1978, Grand Central is an iconic, and probably the nicest, train station in Manhattan. It connects the east side to Brooklyn via the 4, 5, and 6 trains, connects to Times Square and Bryant Park via the S and 7, and is a major hub for Metro-North, connecting NYC to upstate New York and Connecticut. There’s also a ton of restaurants, bars, and shops in this station.
  • Herald Square: Smack-dab in the middle of Midtown, Herald Square is a major hub due to its prime location. The 34th street station has access to the B, D, F, M, N, Q, R, and W trains. This is also the main terminal for the PATH train, connecting NYC to the cities of New Jersey.
  • Penn Station/Moynihan Train Hall: Just a stop below Times Square, Penn Station has access to the 1, 2, 3, A, C, and E trains. However, the real story here is the new Moynihan Train station. This station is a hub for Amtrak and the Long Island Rail Road, so you can basically travel anywhere in the country from this station.

Many bike lanes have also been placed on major avenues and streets, making biking in Midtown safer than ever before. More bike lanes continue to be added, and many of the ones already here have easy access to Citi Bike docking stations.

The only mode of transportation we don’t recommend here is a car. The traffic is hectic, parking can be expensive, and there are so many transportation alternatives that it doesn’t make much sense to keep one in this part of town.


Midtown Manhattan Safety

New York City makes sure to keep tourist hotspots as safe as can be, especially in the busier parts of Midtown. Violent crime is extremely rare, with the most common crimes being pickpocketing and bag snatching. There are the occasional scammers in areas like Times Square, but as long as you’re vigilant you have nothing to worry about.

Midtown also has a wide array of hospitals with branches of New York Presbyterian and Mt. Sinai. NYU Langdon is also located in this part of town, so there’s no shortage of top notch doctors for any situation.


Neighborhoods in Midtown Manhattan
  • Midtown: Though we’ve been referring to Midtown as the section of Manhattan between 59th and 14th street, most maps will tell you the neighborhood of Midtown rests below Central Park above the Garment District.
  • Times Square/Theater District: The brightest place on earth, this small neighborhood is home to Broadway.
  • Hell’s Kitchen/Clinton: Though it had a rough and tumble reputation in the past, Hell’s Kitchen is now very nice and inviting with many LGBTQ+ owned restaurants and bars.
  • Turtle Bay: Located below the Upper East Side, this neighborhood is home to the UN Headquarters.
  • Murray Hill: Named for mercantile Robert Murray, this neighborhood is home to a historic district with over 70 rowhouses.
  • Garment District: The authority on all things fashion, this neighborhood is famous for fashion design and education.
  • Chelsea: Sporting over 200 art galleries, this extravagant neighborhood is home to the Highline.
  • Flatiron District: Named after the iconic skyscraper, this small neighborhood is home to Madison Square Park.
  • Kips Bay: Home to multiple branches of NYU and Hunter.
  • Gramercy: Home to the Gramercy Historic District and one of the only private parks in NYC.

Act Like a Local in Midtown Manhattan
  • Want to see a Broadway show, but don’t want to break the bank? Head to TKTS in Times Square for same day discounts on Broadway and Off-Broadway shows!
  • Take a nice walk on the Highline. Try to time it so you hit 34th street at sunset.
  • The shopping district on 5th avenue is the place to find luxury brands. Take a trip to the 34th street Macy’s during the Holidays to catch a glimpse of Santa himself!
  • Check out Madison Square Garden for tons of sporting events and performances!
  • If you’re seeking a calm escape from the high energy of Midtown, head to Bryant Park to sit and relax. Also check out The New York Public Library, the nation’s second largest library.

Fun Facts and History of Midtown Manhattan

In Manhattan’s early days, Midtown was considered Uptown and was not the nicest place to live. However, as the city expanded after the revolution, more and more people began to move uptown for more spacious living arrangements and business opportunities.

Midtown West gained popularity in the 19th Century, when it became the center of garment production for the USA. New technologies and the Industrial Revolution only led to further corporate development in the 20th century, when the Garment District became the leading scene for designers, seamstresses, wholesalers, and more.

In 1904, The New York Times opened its new headquarters in Times Square, making the area popular and affluent enough to form the new Theater District, which is currently home to 40 Broadway theaters. Over time, multiple financial struggles left the area in a sorry state of neglect, leading to high rates of crime.

Starting in the 1990s, the Disney Corporation decided to produce shows on Broadway, like The Lion King, and worked with the city to make the area more family-friendly. Today, the buildings still blare with flashing color and advertisements, and residents and tourists of all ages and backgrounds crowd the streets.
