    What Our Brokers Say About Midtown East Office Space

    The borough of Manhattan south of Central Park is traditionally divided into Midtown, Midtown South, and Lower Manhattan. Midtown East is the Eastern half of Midtown that is bordered by Fifth Avenue to the west, the East River to the east, 59th St. to the north, and 42nd Street to the south. The area is home to the Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Center, and the United Nations Headquarters, and visitors will notice a lot of areas that look familiar because they’ve appeared on postcards and in TV shows.

    Midtown East is primarily a business district and is relatively quiet during the evenings. Traveling around the area and getting to and from nearby districts is easy, especially with the convenient juxtaposition of Grand Central Station, which is not only one of the biggest hubs for public transportation in NYC but also a historic landmark. Nearby subway lines include: 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, B, D, F, M, E, and 7. If visiting business partners need a place to stay, book rooms in The Langham, The Bernic Hotel, Fitzpatrick Grand Central, or Pod 39.
