Midtown East


Midtown on the East Side, from Fifth Avenue to the East River, from 40th to 59th Streets.

Grand Central Station, the United Nations headquarters overlooking the East River, the Chrysler Building with its Art
Deco glory — what part of New York City is more iconic than Midtown on the East Side?

The Midtown area exudes the energy of commerce, coupled with the beauty of glorious old architecture offering both
light and lifestyle. Many condos and co-ops are skyscrapers with open city views, so at night you can see Midtown
spread like a blanket beneath your feet. Some of the layouts in Midtown are loft-like with oversized windows, taking
advantage of the spectacular views, while some are set up along more traditional lines with foyers and en-suite baths.
At The Alexander, 250 East 49th Street, the ceilings are nearly twelve feet high, and the condo units are outfitted with
Poggenpohl kitchens and spa-like limestone baths. The amenities of these luxury Midtown apartment buildings often
include health clubs, party rooms, storage and parking. Living in Midtown allows for a lifestyle that isn’t just walk-towork
— it’s walk-to-everything. Midtown East residents enjoy shopping at Bloomingdale’s, a New York landmark since
1861, and recreation in Central Park, which offers bike riding, rollerblading and ice skating as well as Shakespeare in
the Park.
