Midtown East Buildings
Midtown East Neighborhood
Living on the East Side is a welcomed treat for many New Yorkers who want to be connected to the rest of the city but also find respite in their own quiet neighborhood. The streets are lined with an array of cultural attractions, fine dining and boutiques – the kind you find “only in New York”. Looking to get out of the city from time to time? You will appreciate the easy access to Grand Central Terminal, one of New York’s most Iconic Landmarks.
The Bamford – 333 East 56th Street

The Belmont – 320 East 46th Street

The Bristol – 300 East 56 Street
This prestigious New York address located in the sophisticated Sutton Place neighborhood has unusually large apartments.

Midtown East Neighborhood Highlights
Grand Central Terminal
If Times Square is “the crossroads of the world,” then Grand Central Terminal is “the heart of New York City.” It has been completely restored back to its 1913 splendor and is the largest train station in the world (based on the number of platforms).
United Nations Headquarters
The center of diplomacy between heads of state, the United Nations Headquarters provides informative and inspiring tours on a daily basis. Built in the aftermath of WWII and bankrolled by the historic Rockefeller family, the United Nations building is steeped in a cultural legacy both globally significant and specific to the history of New York City.
Saint Patrick’s Cathedral
St. Patrick’s Cathedral presents a breathtaking Neo-Gothic face to the City. Starting in 2012, the Cathedral has entered a large-scale, five-year renovation project to restore the still-splendid church to its former glorious state, undoing the damage caused by rain, pollution, millions of visitors and the ravages of one hundred and fifty years.
With its iconic art deco crown, the Chrysler Building is arguably New York’s most distinctive tower, and it has stood among the tallest buildings on earth since construction completed in 1930. Its planners “wanted a provocative building that would not merely scrape the sky but positively pierce it.”
