One of two large Midtown skyscrapers with a facade that slopes up from the base; the other is the Solow Building. This is no coincidence, as Gordon Bunshaft used the first, rejected plans for that building in his design for the W.R. Grace Building.The outcome of the 50storey facade is here of more conventional nature, with a white grid like pattern of white travertine filling the space between the darkened windows and defining the structural arrangement.The tower was built in 1974 for the W.R. Grace chemical company to 42nd Street as the company relocated from Downtown Manhattan, replacing the Stern Brothers department store.The building's plaza on the 43rd Street side extends to the Sixth Avenue corner. It, as well as the sidewalk on the 42nd Street side of the building, is clad in the same white travertine as used on the building's facades.



Midtown is the epicenter of businessĀ in New York City, the beating heart of everyday professional life in Manhattan, the "Big Apple" everyone's talking about. Ā In many ways, it's a microcosm of the city -Ā its own ecosystem of interconnected businesses and neighborhoods. While it's most commonly associated with the modern marvel that is Times Square, there's more to Midtown than jam-packed sidewalks, throttling skyscrapers, and honking taxis.

This is the home of coolĀ districts likeĀ Koreatown and Rose Hill, theĀ patron of fine cultural institutions likeĀ the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Scandanavian House, PierPont Morgan Library, and the Japan Society. Some of the bestĀ restaurants in the world hail from Midtown, like Thomas Keller's Per Se,Ā Takayama's Masa, and Eric Ripert's Le Bernardin.Ā Famed venues like the Ziegfeld Theatre movie palace, Carnegie Hall, and Radio City Music Hall never fail to charm. And we haven't even gotten to the shopping on 5th Avenue or the "Hamilton" craze on Broadway taking the world by storm. So you see, Midtown isn't all work and no play, but it does excel at work when you get down to it.

Midtown office spaceĀ drives theĀ commercial market in New York City. ItĀ isn'tĀ exactly cheap, comingĀ at an averageĀ of $73/sqft,Ā but itsĀ unbeatable public transit options and well-laid infrastructure still make itĀ top dog for big businesses in need of office space for rent. As for the neighbors, take your pick. It's the media and advertising and financial capital of the world.

Nearby Districts Include:Ā The Garment District, the Upper West Side, and the Upper East Side.Ā
