Midtown is a walk-to-work neighborhood that includes Sutton Place and
Beekman Place - two of the city's most sought-after residential enclaves
- and the historical district of Tudor City - bounded by First and Second
Avenues, from East 40th to 44th Streets. A hectic street life by day
or night, looming office towers and easy access to the Island on weekends,
this neighborhood is full of life 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
Many United Nations diplomats and employees reside in this neighborhood
because of the convenient commute and "diplomat welcome" buildings.
East of Fifth Avenue, near Central Park, there are elegant hotels, haute-couture
boutiques, and upscale department stores like Tiffany & Company, FAO
Schwartz, and Saks. Madison Avenue has fine shopping at more affordable
prices. Midtown East is a popular tourist area with attractions like
the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and the United Nations.
