Midtown Manhattan is the Heart of New York City

Midtown Manhattan is the Heart of New York City

When people think of New York City, they are likely thinking of Midtown Manhattan. This is the center of the city, with so many recognizable landmarks and so much to do. From Broadway and Rockefeller Center to St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Grand Central Station, this is the part of town that truly doesn’t sleep.

So Much to Do to and See

Midtown is home to the world famous Broadway Theatre District and its Restaurant Row, as well as some of the world’s most prestigious retail shops, restaurants, clubs and iconic skyscrapers that shape the city’s distinctive skyline. Midtown makes no apologies for being the flashiest place in New York and the commercial heart of the city.

Holiday Spirit in Midtown

Midtown is where New Yorkers (and tourists) celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. We personally love checking out all the incredible holiday window displays at stores throughout Midtown like Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany’s and Bergdorf Goodman. Then, of course, there’s the lighting of the iconic Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. And, if you are brave, you can join the 2 million person New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square!

Midtown Real Estate Market

Midtown Manhattan definitely lights itself up for the holiday season, but it is always the most exciting place in the city no matter when you are there. Naturally, Midtown is home to one of New York’s most dynamic real estate markets. The elite want to be in the middle of all the action, so luxury homes are extremely desirable (it’s home to the iconic “Billionaire’s Row”). It’s perhaps the most competitive and fastest-moving market in the world, so we thrive on any opportunity to represent buyers and sellers in Midtown.

We currently have several exclusive listings in Midtown. One of our favorites is a 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath condominium on East 57th Street. This luxurious home is masterfully appointed with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer amazing views of the city. Brazilian walnut floors, an open floor plan and a top-of-the-line kitchen design are just some of the features that make this unit stand out. Check out all the details of this listing here:
