Murray Hill, Midtown Manhattan
Midtown is what non-New Yorkers usually think of when imagining New York City. Simply put, it is the busiest commercial district in the United States. Although this impression is accurate, Midtown also houses a large number of tenement buildings and modern high-rises. New residential developments are popping up all the time, and it has become a very convenient place to live.To the West of 8th Avenue lies Hell’s Kitchen, whose locals are resisting calls to refer to it as the more marketable Clinton.Its proximity to Broadway and its abundance of affordable housing make this area very popular among aspiring actors, students and young people in general. For a long time zoning laws protected the low-rise character of the buildings here and prevented development in the area. The laws changed in the 1970s, allowing the building of a number of modern condo high-rises, which are now intermixed with pre-war brick walk-ups and refurbished industrials lofts. The area has a strong mix of ethnic and small local restaurants - including Ethiopian, Afghan, Peruvian - centered around Ninth Avenue, on which the Ninth Avenue Association's International Food Festival has been performing since 1974.
On the opposite side of the island, along the East River, Midtown East (also known as Turtle Bay) is also largely residential. The neighborhood has everyone from old money to blue-collar workers, with the diversity in lodgings to match. It includes the upscale neighborhoods of Sutton Place and Beekman Place, as well as the more affordable Murray Hill. Midtown East is home to the United Nations headquarters and to St. Patrick’s Cathedral – the largest decorated neo-gothic cathedral in the United States.In between Midtown West and Midtown East lies the more centrally located Theatre District. This area is home to world-renowned theaters (on- and off-Broadway), Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Madison Square Garden, several museums along 53rd Street (including the Museum of Modern Art), shopping malls, and a number of architectural masterpieces such as the Empire State Building, the Chrysler building and Grand Central Terminal. The recent addition of the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle reinforced the significance of this area as an entertainment destination for New York residents and visitors.
