Neon lights, epic skyscrapers and a high-energy 24-hour scene – feel like you’re at the centre of the universe in Midtown NY
Midtown isn’t just for tourists and city workers – at just a 10-minute hop on the subway from NYU, it’s a great base for your studies too. Take a break from your books to explore this iconic neighbourhood. Gaze up at towering skyscrapers, be mesmerised by the huge neon signs of Times Square, or enjoy the tranquility of the cavernous Neo-Gothic St Patrick’s Cathedral.
With so much going on, Midtown offers the perfect antidote to the stress of study. Lose yourself staring into Van Gogh’s masterpiece The Starry Night at the world-leading Museum of Modern Art. Go skating at the Rockefeller Center or climb to Top of the Rock for breathtaking city skyline views. Wander between the stacks of New York Public Library, soaking up the opulent grandeur.
You won’t ever go hungry in Midtown. Feast on oversized sandwiches at The Carnegie Deli, juicy burgers at Bill’s Bar & Burger, and slurp on milkshakes at legendary “slow fast-food” joint Essen.
Sights and food done, there’s only one thing left to do – shop. For big brand names, high-end labels, and near-round-the-clock shopping, Midtown is your dream destination. Drool over designer clothing in the sprawling, immaculate Saks Fifth Avenue, or stock up on trend-led styles at fashion mecca, Forever 21 in Times Square.
Full of lights, cameras, and action, people from all walks of life descend on Midtown to soak up the buzz that’s unlike anywhere else in the world.
