Also known as Lower Midtown East, the more low-key part of Midtown that is Murray Hill stretches from Fifth Avenue to the United Nations at the East River.
Both the dazzling Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building are stunning architectural highlights. Grand Central Station is certainly worth a look, as it's one of the most impressive railroad stations in America. Walk in to admire its gleaming brass clock, the exquisite staircases, and the unique celestial ceiling, its light bluish-green background filled with well-known constellations dotted with tiny lights. Restored in recent years, the cavernous main hall is bathed in natural light during the day, and pulsates with activity at night, thanks not least to its three busy restaurants: Michael Jordan's Steakhouse, Metrazur, and the famous Oyster Bar.
The gorgeous Chrysler Building (which turned 75 in 2005) is also nearby. In the bright sunlight, the upper floors gleam, reflect, and even seem to pulsate light, directing the eye upwards towards the spire. Its gorgeous Art Deco lobby, with murals celebrating transportation themes, is definitely one of New York's finest. Examine the ornamental details, the typical Deco motifs, the lush marble, and the charming light fixtures, all restored in recent years.
Meanwhile, the Pierpont Morgan Library presents diverse cultural offerings. The library is home to a dazzling collection of rare books and the building's structure –an Italian Renaissance-style palazzo reflects the nature and stature of its contents. Murray Hill is also home to various educational and cultural institutions such as the CUNY Graduate Center, Stern College for Women and the Oxford University Press. Other notable establishments include the Mexican Cultural Institute and the Scandinavia House, which is dedicated to the education and preservation of Nordic culture.
There are also plenty of dining options on the Hill. If you're craving pan-Asian fare try Tibetan Kitchen New York's original Tibetan restaurant. After many years, the Kitchen continues to turn out the beloved specialties of the high Himalaya, from momo (steamed or fried dumplings), thukpa (noodle soup) and a host of other fine dishes all at very reasonable prices. The decor even features hand-painted traditional Tibetan motifs, done by a former monk. If Mediterranean cuisine is more your style, check out Salute! and try their excellent homemade pasta. Murray Hill is also home to The Palm, a historic restaurant that became famous for its legendary steak and tradition. The walls are adorned with caricatures of the famous and local. Generations have been coming back to taste the incredible hash browns or to order a three-pound jumbo lobster and you should too.
Murray Hill is an ideal neighborhood to spend your time in New York, as it is in close proximity to so many Midtown attractions, thus the Hill offers a plethora of hotel offerings. The Affinia Dumont is a distinguished, all suite hotel, which among travelers' more spacious and elegant options. The Park South Hotel is a more moderately priced option that's rife with style.
Car: not necessary
Also known as Lower Midtown East, the more low-key part of Midtown that is Murray Hill stretches from Fifth Avenue to the United Nations at the East River. The pedestrian and traffic congestion of Murray Hill is a major quality-of-life issue for the residents, who also battle against the endless traffic at the Queens-Midtown Tunnel. Nevertheless, take a walk around the quieter residential blocks, and you're quickly transported away from the hubbub of central Midtown.
The dazzling Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building are stunning architectural highlights. Grand Central Station is certainly worth a look, as the most impressive railroad stations in America. With its gleaming brass clock, the exquisite staircases, and the unique celestial ceiling, its light bluish-green background filled with well-known constellations dotted with tiny lights. Restored in recent years, the cavernous main hall is bathed in natural light during the day, and pulsates with activity every night!
Other Activities: The gorgeous Chrysler Building is also nearby. In the bright sunlight, the upper floors gleam, reflect, and even seem to pulsate light.
Stretching from 5th Avenue to Park Avenue South, from 29th Street to the top of Union Square, this cluster of neighborhoods has undergone substantial change in recent years. Madison Square Park has been substantially cleaned up and revitalized (check out the Shake Shack - an incredibly popular burger joint in the park) or just hang out on the benches and people-watch on a summer day), Murray Hill and the area around it is now home to a number of great restaurants, including Tabla, Eleven Madison Park, and the three-star A Voce. Gentrification has made its mark here, too: the Metropolitan Life Insurance building has just been sold to a developer, who will turn it into condos. But the area has history--this was, of course, the site of the original Madison Square Gardens, way way back in the 19th century--and the new conversions preserve the beautiful architecture around the park: it's one of the loveliest squares in all of downtown. Park Avenue South is an after-work bar-hopping mecca.

The New York region
What to Do in Times Square, Theatre District & Rockefeller Center
Times Square is always a must-see for first time Manhattan adventurers, and can be an overwhelming and exhilarating experience. Huge billboards of fashion icons and bright advertisements can distract even a New Yorker trying to make his or her way through the dense crowds of people looking skyward.
In the past, Times Square was notorious as the city's seedy underside. But now when you think of Times Square, think again -- its spirit and style have changed dramatically since the mid '90s. It is still the heart of the city and the crosswords where commerce meets the performing arts, but the crime rate has plummeted, the sidewalks are among the cleanest in the city, and more and more "legitimate" business are moving in every day. If it weren't for all the enormous, dazzling "supersigns," the "zipper" flashing the latest news, the dense displays of head- and taillights, and the constant flow of 1.5 million pedestrians, you might not recognize it at all.
What hasn't changed is the entertainment: as always, the ways to amuse and delight yourself are endless. All of the "Great White Way" lies within the boundaries of Times Square; with 39 theatres (many of which are landmarked), it is home to the highest concentration of showplaces in the world.
To the north (and a block or two east) is Rockefeller Center, between Fifth & Seventh Avenues and 49th & 51st Streets. The most famous building in this area is GE Building ("30 Rock"), which is home to NBC's New York studios, where "Saturday Night Live," "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," and the "Today" show are taped. It's also where you'll find the NBC Experience/Studio Tour, and Top of the Rock, the refurbished observation deck that re-opened in 2005 after being closed for 20 years.
Nearby on Sixth Avenue is the "showplace of the nation," Radio City Music Hall, home of the Rockettes, the Mighty Wurlitzer, the annual Christmas Spectacular, and various concerts and performances. Tours are offered seven days a week from 11am to 3pm.
Sometimes referred to as the "Street of Diamonds," the Diamond District (47th Street from Fifth to Sixth Aves.) is jammed with individual stores and exchanges, their windows ablaze with shimmering diamonds and other fine gems. Imagine one store with more than two million items of fine jewelry and diamonds -- this is that store, with an unparalleled selection of styles in every conceivable price range, from the most modest to the most grand. A great deal is not hard to find; in fact, store owners are often seen roaming up and down the street, ensuring that their prices can't be beat.
Also situated in the neighborhood are museums, including the world-class collections of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), plus the American Folk Art Museum, the International Center of Photography, the Museum of Arts & Design, the Paley Center for Media, and the famed "main branch" (the Humanities and Social Sciences Library) of the New York Public Library.

What to Do in Midtown West
Midtown is not only the center of Manhattan, but also the center of many visitor trips to New York. This section covers the west side of Midtown, approximately 34th Street to 42nd Street, west of Fifth Avenue, including Hell's Kitchen. For Midtown East, click here.
This area of Manhattan is home to many of the city's most iconic destinations. The 102-story Art Deco masterpiece the Empire State Building is the city's tallest building, and undoubtedly its most famous. As fans of Sleepless in Seattle, King Kong, and An Affair to Remember know, its observation deck is one of the most romantic places in the city.
The Empire State Building is located near the park at Herald Square, an area which includes Macy's 11-floor flagship store, while 34th Street is home to a number national chains. (Herald Square is also the final stop for the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.) Seventh Avenue is also known as Fashion Avenue, and for good reason: anything involving fashion can be found from West 36th to 40th Streets between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. This is a fashion mecca, housing everything from buttons, to fabrics, and even furs. Wholesale fur shops can be found all around 29th Street and Seventh Avenue. The Garment District is located between Fifth and Ninth Avenues from 34th to 42nd Street, and is considered the center for fashion design and manufacturing in the U.S. The Fashion Walk of Fame runs along the east side of Seventh Avenue from 35th to 41st Streets. Honorees include Marc Jacobs, Betsey Johnson, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta, and Ralph Lauren. You'll find the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) on 27th Street between Seventh & Eighth Avenues; The Museum at FIT is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, and features exhibits with a emphasis on fashion and culture particularly clothing, costumes, textiles, art, and design.
In the area west of Herald Square, you'll find many other NYC icons. The fourth incarnation of Madison Square Garden is located atop Penn Station at 34th Street and Seventh Avenue. Madison Square Garden is home to the Knicks, Rangers, Liberty, and hosts numerous concerts and staged performances, including one every holiday season (A Christmas Carol and Annie were recent productions). Penn Station is the busiest train station in the U.S., serving Amtrak, the MTA (NYC's buses and subways), New Jersey Transit, and the Long Island Rail Road. Across Eighth Avenue from Penn Station and the Garden is James A. Farley Post Office, NYC's General Post Office. The building, bearing the inscription, Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds, is a National Historic Landmark, and occupies eight acres. Port Authority Bus Terminal is located at Seventh Avenue & 42nd Street.
On Fifth Avenue and 42nd St., you'll find Bryant Park and the main branch of the New York Public Library. Bryant Park (named for William Cullen Bryant) hosts many city events, including Fashion Week, movies on Monday nights during the summer, and the Citi Pond at Bryant Park, a free ice-skating rink (rentals are extra) from mid-October to mid-January. The New York Public Library is a beautiful beaux-arts building (completed in 1911) and architectural stunner that hosts interesting exhibitions, and, as a research library, its books and rare treasures make it one of the worlds most important.
