Fun Facts and History of Midtown East

Midtown East, like the rest of Manhattan, was historically farmland during the early days. Affluent families were drawn to the region because of its peaceful surroundings and convenient access to the East River, which made the area ideal for agriculture.

During the 1800’s and early 1900’s, Midtown East became a hotspot for industry, welcoming factories, breweries, and slaughterhouses. With industry came workers, mostly Irish and German immigrants who contributed to the area with projects such as the construction of Saint Patrick's Cathedral in 1879.

By the time Grand Central Terminal was built in 1913, the neighborhood was still largely industrial. That changed once the depression hit in the 1930’s. Many jobs were lost and the area began to decay. Things began to turn around once the industrial buildings and tenements were bought and mostly demolished to make way for more affluent living spaces. The United Nations Building and the landmarking of The Chrysler Building and Grand Central solidified the affluent identity of the neighborhood.
