Cheap hotels in Midtown E-Murray Hill, New York
Midtown East begins at Fifth Avenue and works east toward the water, encompassing the residential (and reviving) Murray Hill along the way. More business-oriented than Midtown West, Midtown East is home to many of New York's biggest and best law firms, investment firms, publishing houses, and advertising agencies, which fill up the many skyscrapers linking the avenues.
Still, there are plenty of noteworthy tourist sights in Midtown East, including Grand Central Terminal, the United Nations headquarters, Trump Tower, the Chrysler Building, and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Midtown East is also somewhat of a shopping haven. The flagship Saks Fifth Avenue store is located here, as are Takashimaya, Chanel, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Niketown … Basically, if it isn't in Midtown East, then it's a few blocks north in the Upper East Side.
Not known for its nightlife, Midtown East is, at least, not dead after dark. Remember all those skyscrapers? Well their occupants begin to fill up Midtown East's bars, pubs, and steakhouses after office hours, keeping the neighborhood somewhat lively with suits, slacks, and skirts letting off steam. This neighborhood also offers easy access to Central Park and the many museums of the Upper East Side.
Address 30 E. 30th St. (Park and Madison Avenues) (Midtown E-Murray Hill)
