Roughly north of 34th Street, south of 57th, and west of Fifth Avenue, Midtown West is one of Manhattan’s most iconic neighborhoods. This is where you’ll find Times Square, Broadway theaters, and Bryant Park. Beyond the energy of those landmarks, simply strolling here is a walk through the New York that many people picture when they think of the city: Soaring skyscrapers looming above broad avenues, with yellow cabs looking for fares and sidewalks crowded with office workers and tourists. The most bustling portion of 42nd Street, between Times Square and Eighth Avenue, is in Midtown West, too. If you want to make your home in the heart of the city, you’ll generally find residential buildings along the western edge of Midtown West, beginning around 8th Avenue, while hotels and office buildings dominate the eastern half of the neighborhood.
