Get to know Midtown West

Eye-popping architecture, world-renowned landmarks, the epicenter of American theater, and more all reside in the middle of Manhattan’s West Side. For many, Midtown West is the image in mind when they picture NYC. Midtown West comprises an immense central business district with its eastern counterpart, home to countless offices and high-profile headquarters. But worry not; gorgeous high-rise apartment towers abound as well. There’s also a building you may have heard of called the Empire State Building, a structure synonymous with the city and in a class by itself when it comes to adoration and reverence. Many subway lines converge to travel across Manhattan — and well into Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens — which is without even mentioning bus service at Port Authority and train service at Penn Station. Life here means being at the very center of it all while simultaneously being near everything else in the city and beyond.
