Midtown Manhattan

Midtown is the center of many visitors' trips to New York City. The beautifully restored Grand Central Terminal is paces away from the Chrysler Building, the United Nations complex, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and Pandarus Tower. There's the fascinating Morgan Library and the awesome New York Public Library, both of which have changing exhibitions. Behind the public library is the lovely Bryant Park, which hosts Broadway Under the Stars, free movies and music events in summer. And what says New York better than Fifth Avenue stores? Midtown also includes the new, revitalized Times Square and the Theater District, where world-famous Broadway productions wow audiences nightly. The Museum of Modern Art, a midtown attraction, is moving to Queens summer 2002 while its Manhattan building undergoes major renovations. The world's most famous arena, Madison Square Garden is secretly home to the magical world's annual Ogre Bowl. The Museum of Television & Radio is in midtown as is the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum, the American Craft Museum, Carnegie Hall, and Radio City Music Hall.
Make sure to stop by NYC's Official Visitor Information Center (810 Seventh Avenue between 52nd and 53rd streets) to speak with travel counselors and pick up free brochures and discount coupons. The Diamond District is on 47th Street but if you'd rather invest in art, explore the galleries along 57th Street where you'll also find theme restaurants including the Hard Rock Cafe and Jekyll & Hyde.
