Neighborhood Guide

If you want to experience the bustling New York City of movies and postcards, look no further than Midtown East. Home to countless Gotham landmarks, world-class restaurants and shopping, and architectural points of interest—from glistening Art Deco skyscrapers to towering Tudor-style apartments—the neighborhood has plenty for visitors to see, eat, and do without traveling too far. The area doesn’t just attract tourists either: prominent American companies like Bloomberg, Capital One, and Pfizer have set up their headquarters in the neighborhood. Then there’s the United Nations, which sits a hop skip away from The Benjamin, and plays host to some of the world’s most important diplomats.

By night, the neighborhood quiets down considerably, offering dining options that range from relaxed to refined. Whether you’re looking for a classic New York City Irish pub or a swanky club and lounge, you’ll find something worthwhile in Midtown East. Here, check out Midtown East’s best bars, restaurants, shopping, and attractions.
