Midtown Manhattan: Iconic Sights, Shops Along Fifth Avenue, and Penn Station Transportation
Midtown Manhattan is known for some of New York’s most famous landmarks, including Rockefeller Center—home to the iconic outdoor ice-skating rink, the Today show, and Saturday Night Live—and Madison Square Garden, home to the New York Knicks and Rangers.
With its proximity to Penn Station and the Port Authority bus terminal, transportation in Midtown is a breeze. Trains leaving Penn Station travel all across the city, and Grand Central Terminal, the world’s sixth-most-visited tourist attraction, is nearby. Though in recent years Grand Central has filled with upscale restaurants and shops, it still serves as a major transportation hub with subway lines and Metro trains heading all over the city.
A stroll down Fifth Avenue is a world-renowned shopping experience: the street is filled with luxury boutiques and flagship department stores, including the original Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman. For a little tranquility in the middle of the city, follow Fifth north to the southeast corner of Central Park. Just a few feet away from the street is the Pond, which is spanned by a stone bridge. A little farther north, you’ll find the heart of Central Park Zoo.
