Midtown West

Boundaries: North of 28th Street, South of 59th Street, West of Fifth Avenue to the Hudson River.

Neighborhoods include:
Clinton (aka Hell’s kitchen), Times Square, the Fashion and Theater Districts.

Undoubtedly what many tourists know as the “Great White Way,” it is the site of American Theater’s inimitable home on Broadway, Macy’s and Herald Square, the remarkably transformed 42nd Street and, of course, the Empire State. Aside from hotels providing temporary residence for tourists, the area is also widely known as world headquarters for broadcasting companies (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, etc.), publishing companies (McGraw Hill, Simon & Schuster), advertising agencies (Young & Rubicam, Gray) and other major corporations. With Broadway, Fifth Sixth and Seventh Avenues enjoying commercial traffic, Clinton and its vicinity have become a welcome residential reprieve. Dozens of high-rises have been constructed, offering a great variety of modern apartments, with high-end finishes and astonishing views of the city skyline and the Hudson River. The area also offers some of the most affordable rents in city while still maintaining close proximity to the best of everything the city has to offer. Many new restaurants and bars have opened along the Avenues enabling neighborhood residences to enjoy a drink or a casual dinner walking distance from their home.
