If you ever wondered why New York City is nicknamed “The City That Never Sleeps”, Midtown West boldly explains everything. Stretching from 5th avenue to the West Side Highway and from 34th street to Central Park South, Midtown West is the largest central business district in the United States. At its heart is Times Square, whose glowing neon signs and Broadway marquees draw tourists and businesspeople like moths to flame. With real estate prices above the Manhattan average, residents consist primarily of a cocktail of young professionals, actors, and multi-generational owners. The gridded streets are full of the hustling business commuters and bustling tourists, rushing past or into theaters, ethnic restaurants, tourist attractions and skyscraping buildings. Giants such as Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and United Nations Headquarters tower over the internationally appealing commercial spots of Broadway, Madison Square Gardens, and Carnegie Hall. A melting pot of travel and culture, it’s common to see Disney Princess’s snapping photos alongside tourists from all over the world in a whirlwind of music, conversation, and rumbling vehicles. Historically, Midtown West was the home of working class Irish Americans, complete with mobsters and the financially unfortunate. New York City’s main USPS post office James A. Farley Post Office is located opposite 34th St. Penn Station and Madison Square Garden. As Midtown West is a central point of Manhattan, almost every main NYC Subway line goes through here. The central LIRR station is located at 34th Penn Station and Metro North at Grand Central Station. By: Meir Areman

    Young and bustling. Apartments use to be much more affordable but now filled with young professionals and people in the arts. It's a neighborhood for singles or partners without children. I love that it's in the heart of theater and nightlife.

    This area is the epitome of a tourists vision when visiting NYC. There is so much to offer whether you come to shop or dine you will not be disappointed. The holiday season is full of lots to see and plenty to do with friends and family.

    Expensive but close to EVERYTHING. Having a car more of a hassle then a benefit. Geared more toward young professionals and not families. Access to Central Park is unrivaled.
