A first-timer in midtown Manhattan is likely to be overwhelmed quickly by the mass of huge and famous sights that abound. Contrast that with the thousands of pedestrians and commuters who seem unfazed by their surroundings as they race to their jobs or meetings and the trains they’re late for. This tour focuses on the area often referred to as Midtown South 2nd Street, the Theater District, and Rockefeller Center are covered in the next three walks. Midtown has a lot to offer, and even the most jaded New Yorkers know that occasionally they have to give in and enjoy the scene. From the splendid flagship Macy’s to the towering Empire State Building, from Madison Square Garden sports and concerts to the quiet joys of the museums in the area, there is so much to do and see here.
