Give my regards to Broadway — and let me live there in a luxury Midtown West condo while we’re at it. The formerly low-rise neighborhood west of Fifth Avenue has recently allowed the construction of luxury high-rises. These doorman condos often offer stunning views to the river and beyond. The center of Midtown West is Clinton, which boasts state-of-the-art condominiums like the Orion and Platinum. Living in one of these high-rises offers a breathtaking experience when Times Square is gussied up in its neon best.
In general, the Midtown West neighborhood is walk-to-work for any number of people, from the aspiring Broadway hopefuls who share brownstone apartments and co-ops to the corporate executives who head to Rockefeller Center. The neighborhood is home to a number of Manhattan arts institutions, such as Carnegie Hall and Alvin Ailey, and the northern end is close enough to Central Park that the park’s tranquility and greenery are star attractions. For dining, whether fine or casual, Midtown West co-op and condo dwellers hit Ninth Avenue, the area’s restaurant strip. In the winter, the Times Square area’s big draw is the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, unmatched anywhere else in the world. During the summer, many Midtown West residents head to Bryant Park for the luxury of free movie screenings and jazz concerts.
A Changing Skyline
Developers are finally able to move ahead with ambitious towers of a scale we haven’t seen in years. While it's happening all over the city, it is most visible now in the prime Midtown corridor.
