Midtown East extends west to Fifth Avenue and east to the East River, from 42nd to 57th Streets, and enfolds the mini-hoods of Turtle Bay, Beekman, Tudor City and the Plaza District. But all those names add up to one thing -- Midtown East is a neighborhood at the center of it all, and home to some of the most desirable rental apartments in Manhattan.
While Midtown East is home to a number of iconic landmarks -- the gloriously designed transit hub that is Grand Central Station; the art deco grandeur of The Chrysler Building; the opulent retail mecca of Bloomingdale's -- it is most distinguished as a residential neighborhood by a surprisingly low-key gentility. Turtle Bay has a lively nightlife scene, but it's striking just how sedate, welcoming and neighborhood-y so central a neighborhood can be. World class dining and shopping are tucked away on these quiet, tree-lined blocks, as are unpretentious neighborhood pubs and coffeeshops. Midtown East is a study in contrasts, and all the more quintessentially New York for that.
Unsurprisingly, given its central location, Midtown East is a vertical neighborhood. What's more surprising is how varied these mid-rise and high-rise apartment buildings actually are. The ultra-luxe apartments and amenities at Le Triomphe offer an opulent living experience, as does the 52-story Metropolis. A more low-key, classic collection of rental apartments can be found at The Belmont and Rivercourt. The most important thing that this diverse array of luxury apartment buildings have in common, of course, is location -- at the very center of the city that's at the center of the world.
