A New York corporate apartment resident will find Midtown East to be an upscale, diverse community, with fine restaurants and a wide range of shopping choices. While staying here, you’ll be in the neighborhood of many of New York’s most popular tourist destinations, such as the Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Center and the United Nations Building. Take the kids to FAO Scwharz, the oldest toy store in the U.S., or treat yourself to a shopping spree at New York’s renowned Bloomingdale’s Department Store. Visit the New York Public Library on 5th Avenue and 42nd Street, if only to admire the architecture of one of New York’s most notable buildings. Dine at Bobby Van’s Steakhouse, ranked as number one on Tom Horan’s 2006 “American’s Top Ten” list of steakhouses. Local schools include PS 59 grade school at 228 E. 57th Street and the Art and Design High School at 1075 Second Avenue. Public transportation is easily accessible to New York corporate apartment residents with several subway lines (4,5,6,N,R.W,E,F & V trains) and local bus routes to choose from. Also located in Midtown East is the one of the country’s busiest commuter station, Grand Central Station, which in 1998 was completely restored to its 1913 splendor.
