Scattered throughout the neighborhood are many options for public transportation, shopping, and dining. No matter where you land on the neighborhood spectrum, there’s something there for everyone.

Our top Midtown Moving Tips

If you’re ready to be in the thick of it, Midtown is where its at. This neighborhood spans the borough from the Hudson River to the west and to the East River… well, on the east side. North to south, it runs from 59th Street where it meets the southern part of Central Park and goes down to 34th Street.

Covering that sizable stretch of Manhattan means there’s lots to cover. Here’s a few details to get you started as a new resident:

  • In the middle of everything. Those who enjoy the hub-bub and fan fare of living in NYC will be right at home here. There’s plenty to keep you busy indoors and outdoors here. Just a short jaunt from your address, you’ll find classic historical landmarks. You’ll be a hop, skip, and a jump from the big tree and skating rink at Rockefeller Center during Christmas time. Getting cultured comes easy with a short trip to the main branch of the New York Public Library or the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). And, there’s no need to venture too far for music and entertainment — Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, and Radio City Music Hall are all nearby. If you find your stomach rumbling in between stops, you won’t go hungry for long. From the fine dining at Le Bernadin to the casual ramen joint like Totto Ramen or Little Beet (a veggie-friendly spot), there’s a whole range of flavors to enjoy. You can also get your fill of retail therapy at the Macy’s flagship store or the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle.
  • Top-tier transportation options. Midtown isn’t a misnomer; you really are in the middle of Manhattan. Being centrally located means you’ll have ready access to many different transit options to get you in and around the island, the other boroughs, and even easily into the tri-state area. You can catch any number of trains, such as the MTA, Long Island Rail Road, PATH, New Jersey Transit, and Metro-North lines at either Penn Station or Grand Central Terminal. If your travels take you out of state, you can access the Amtrak train lines at the Moynihan Train Hall (near Penn Station). Taking a bus? You can easily get to Port Authority to get there. No matter where you need to go, it won’t be hard to get there from here.
  • Housing costs. Living here means you’ll need to be prepared to pay a premium for the prime location, whether you’re renting or buying your own place. Most of the rental dwellings are big apartment buildings that have 50+ units in them. About a third are buildings with fewer than 50 units, and a very small number of homes are single family rentals. While the average rent in the country is about $1,700, you’ll find the average monthly rent in Midtown at around $4,414. That can vary quite a bit depending on the building and apartment size as well. For instance, a one-bedroom may run you anywhere between $1,850 to $8,000 a month. If you go this route though, you won’t be alone. Almost three-quarters of Midtown inhabitants are also renters. But, just over a quarter are owners. If you aim to count yourself among them, you’ll find that the median home sale price is currently at $1.19 million, which is up almost 20% since last year. With it being a highly walkable neighborhood and in close proximity to many hot spots, many will find that you get more than just shelter for your housing costs.
  • Green spaces among the skyscrapers. You may be looking up quite a bit in this neighborhood, being lined with impressive architecture. But it’s wise not to forget to take notice of the grass beneath your feet. The good news is that nestled in the great structures are a number of spots where you can find a little green peace when you need it. Skate your stress away at Bryant Park’s rink, open from November to March during its Winter Village each year. To the west, you can enjoy some excellent bike paths, playgrounds, and kayaking spots in and around Hudson River Park. Midtown also borders Central Park, check out the zoo, or even bring your canine friend for some off-leash time (from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. or between 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.).

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
