Midtown is an area of Manhattan that doesn't have any specific boundaries. In the “extended” view it is indicatively included to the south of Central Park and to the north of 14st St. (in the more restrictive one to the north of 34th St.) and Fifth Ave. divides it into east and west. It includes smaller areas such as Hell's Kitchen, Theater District, Chelsea on the west side and Murray Hill, Kips Bay, Turtle Bay and Gramercy Park on the east.
It's the best known area of New York with some of the most famous buildings. There is the United Nations headquarters, the Empire State Building, the Rockefeller Center, the Chrysler Building, the MetLife Building (the former Pan Am Building), the Madison Square Garden, the hotels Plaza and Waldorf Astoria, Times Square and the theater area in addition to the Radio City Music Hall, among the museums stands out the MoMa and the small but valuable Morgan Library & Museum, the New York Public Library, churches with St. Patrick's Cathedral, the two large railway stations, Grand Central Terminal and Pennsylvania Station and finally the possibility to go shopping at all levels starting from the luxurious Cartier, Tiffany, Bulgari, Bergdorf Goodman, Chanel, Armani, Fendi, Gucci and many others.
