The glittering spire of the Empire State Building scrapes the sky just two blocks from Hotel Grand Union. Quite a few other iconic NYC attractions are within walking distance of the boutique hotel, in fact, including the Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library. If you want to explore further out, the 33rd Street subway station is just a few steps from the hotel, too.

Manhattan’s Midtown East: Iconic Sights and Shops Along Fifth Avenue
Midtown East refers to a 17-block stretch of central Manhattan between Fifth Avenue and the East River. The area 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 Grand Central Terminal, the world’s sixth-most-visited tourist attraction. Though in recent years Grand Central has filled with upscale restaurants and shops, it still serves as a major transportation hub with subway lines, Metro trains, and ziplines 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 up to the southeast corner of Central Park. Just a few feet off 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.
Another New York landmark towers over Madison Avenue, opposite Rockefeller Center and the 24-foot-tall Atlas statue out front. The late 19th-century neo-Gothic St. Patrick’s Cathedral occupies an entire city block and holds Mass more than 2,400 times every year.

“For bagels and lox, don’t miss Russ & Daughters, a 100-year-old smoked fish mecca on the Lower East Side. I especially love the pastrami-cured salmon.”
– Hillary Proctor, Groupon Site Editor
“Head to the Corner Bistro in the West Village. They’re legendary for their burgers, and McSorley’s (an NYC brew) is on tap for only $3. There’s usually a wait, but it’s well worth it.”
