Neighborhood Spotlight: Midtown West
Life at ARO’s no-fee apartments in Manhattan is rooted in the heart of the city. Its central location means you are just steps from some of New York’s most exciting attractions, while its proximity to major subway lines means everything desirable about the city becomes an extension of your neighborhood. Every weekend, you can create a new itinerary of places you have yet to explore, or you might find that some of the most thrilling destinations in and around Midtown West are the kinds of places you’ll feel grateful to revisit again and again.
If you’re seeking some quality time in the great outdoors, Central Park is just moments away and offers a diverse range of activities. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the park to witness the breathtaking beauty of blooming flowers this spring. Alternatively, you could be among the first to experience the new pickleball court at Wollman Rink. There’s no shortage of options to choose from!
Some people fly to New York from all over the world just to see a Broadway show. When you live this close to the Great White Way, you can become a theater connoisseur—catching shows as soon as they open and seeing the shows that bear repeat viewings as often as you like. Experience a Hamilton matinee one week and Funny Girl the next Saturday night for a career-changing performance from Lea Michele the New York Times called “stupendous.” Make a true night of it with a pre- or post-theater dinner at Joe Allen, where you can feast on American classics like pot roast while rubbing elbows with the theater crowd who have made the restaurant a Broadway institution.
Another legendary NYC restaurant where you might want to become a regular is Le Bernardin, a restaurant that repeatedly gathers the highest culinary honors and lives up to them year after year, as Pete Wells observed in a recent four-star review for the New York Times. Here, each dish is an adventure unto itself, like the tuna tartare with sea urchin toast or the steamed halibut with truffled sunchoke puree. If you’re eager to indulge in Italian cuisine, Bad Roman is worth considering, but securing a reservation may be challenging
A stroll through Times Square at night can become a weekly ritual rather than a fleeting tourist experience, and unique shops like Japanese bookstore Kinokuniya will become
your go-to place to discover the latest manga, anime, books, and Japanese stationery. Also nearby are Madame Tussauds and SPYSCAPE, an immersive experience where, among other activities, you can literally enter the world of a Batman comic and take on a Gotham City you never thought you could see this close. Hop on the A/C train for a quick jaunt to Chelsea to see what’s being showcased in one of the world’s most influential neighborhoods or walk over to the MoMa and immerse yourself in the Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit. While the incomparable amenity package at the no-fee NYC apartments at ARO makes staying in a great option, it also provides the perfect way to recharge for your next neighborhood adventure–and beyond.
