New York City - Midtown (PDF Chapter)
This is the Midtown chapter from Lonely Planet’s New York City guidebook.
Midtown is big, brazen and best seen on foot, so slice it up and enjoy it bit by bit. The top end of Fifth Ave makes for a fabled introduction, home to Tiffany & Co, MoMA and the Rockefeller Center’s Top of the Rock observation deck.
- play spot the landmark at the Rockefeller Center’s jaw-dropping Top of the Rock observa-tion deck, or sip cocktails at grown-ups-only SixtyFive five floors down.
- hang out with Picasso, Warhol and Rothko, or grab a spectacular bite to eat or a fine cock-tail at this blockbuster Museum of Modern Art
- peruse the racks for fine art prints, fascinating old used books, or just inhale the ev-er-more-rare smell of an actual bookstore at Argosy
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
