Midtown East

Iconic Skyscrapers and Sleek Office Buildings
Midtown East is an epicenter for businesses, office buildings, and professionals. Famed skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building, the Trump Tower, and the United Nations Headquarters define its busy skyline. When the busy weekday work hours are over, this neighborhood is filled with people shopping at the luxury retailers along 5th Avenue or the many designer boutiques, eating at trendy, new restaurants, drinking at bars and pubs, and exploring the Museum of Modern Art. Midtown East has the cultural scene and vibrancy of Midtown without the 24/7 bustle.

Residential high-rises, luxury condos, and some affordable walkups constitute the majority of renters' options. Midtown East is a great place to live if you want convenience - Grand Central Terminal, speciality shops, and gyms are plenty.

Midtown East — 8.4/10 Rating (based on 7 neighborhood reviews)
My apartment experience has been very good so far. It is in a very safe neighborhood and due to the location in East midtown Manhattan, my building is in the center of public transportation, restaurants, stores, Bloomingdale's, movie theaters, gyms, etc. The only down side is that due to the way one or two of the streets nearby are located, one has to watch for pedestrian accidents as my mother had an accident when she was crossing the street and had the right of way. It can also be noisy but that's part of living in Manhattan.

Midtown East is a great neighborhood to live in. I have access to the subway and bus if I need to get to campus. It is also walking distance from all major shopping areas and tourist attractions (like Rockefeller Center). There are a ton of restaurant options along 2nd avenue as well.
