Midtown Manhattan, or simply Midtown, is an area of Manhattan, New York City home to world-famous commercial zones such as Rockefeller Center, Broadway, and Times Square. Midtown Manhattan is home to the city's tallest and most famous buildings such as the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building.
Midtown, along with "Uptown" and "Downtown",
is one of the three major subdivisions of Manhattan (though "Uptown"
and "Downtown" can also be used as adjectives or adverbs, and can take
on completely different meanings in the other boroughs, whereas the term
"Midtown" cannot) and can be understood as those parts of Manhattan in
neither of these two other regions - that is, all areas between 14th Street and 59th Street, from the Hudson River to the East River, about five square miles or 12 km2. The core of Midtown Manhattan is from about 31st Street
to 59th Street between Third and Ninth avenues, about two square miles
(this is the area most commonly referred to as "Midtown.") The "Plaza
District", a term used by Manhattan real estate professionals to denote
the most expensive area of midtown from a commercial real estate
perspective, lies between 42nd Street and 59th Street, from Third Avenue to Seventh Avenue, about a square kilometer or half a square mile.
As New York's largest central business district,
Midtown Manhattan is indisputably the busiest single commercial
district in the United States, and among the most intensely and
diversely used pieces of real estate in the world. The great majority of
New York City's skyscrapers, including its tallest hotels and apartment
towers, lie within Midtown. More than 700,000 commuters work in its
offices, hotels, and retail establishments; the area also hosts many
tourists, visiting residents, and students. Some areas, especially Times Square and Fifth Avenue, have massive clusters of retail establishments. Sixth Avenue in Midtown holds the headquarters of three of the four major television networks,
and is one of a few global centers of news and entertainment. It is
also a growing center of finance, second in importance within the United
States only to Downtown Manhattan's Financial District. Times Square is
also the epicenter of American theater.
Road congestion is perennial, especially for crosstown traffic. In 2011 a new system of traffic light control, known as "Midtown in Motion" was announced.
Midtown encompasses many neighborhoods including Hell's Kitchen and Chelsea on the West Side, and Murray Hill, Kips Bay, Turtle Bay, and Gramercy on the East Side. It is also sometimes broken into "Midtown East" and "Midtown West", or north and south as in the New York City Police Department's Midtown North and Midtown South precincts. A simplistic and by no means comprehensive list of the neighborhoods in the Midtown area is as follows:
Between 59th Street to the north and 42nd Street to the south, from west to east:
Hell's Kitchen from the Hudson River to 8th Avenue, including
Theatre Row on West 42nd Street between 11th Avenue and 9th Avenue.
