There are many places to stay in Manhattan that aren't close to
Central Park, but since it's so centrally located, and
there are so many attractions nearby, we decided to present the
hotel options along with some panoramas from the park. Let's start at 59th
Street, the southern edge of the park, which is also called
Central Park South where it borders the park. There are
a number of great hotels on Central Park South including
Seasons Hotel New York, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Essex
Another popular area near the
park is Museum Mile, which runs along 5th Avenue
on the East Side. Moving south past the park down the east
side , you'll also find Rockefeller Center and (a few blocks east on 42nd Street) Grand
Central Station, then, a bit farther south, the Empire State
Building. Hotels in this area include The
Waldorf Astoria, and the Grand Hyatt.
The panorama below was shot from
the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Guggenhiem
Museum is a couple of blocks north.
On the West Side of Manhattan,
south of the park, you'll find Times Square, Broadway,
and the Theatre District. Hotels in this neighborhood include:
NY and the Marriott
Marquis. Continuing south on the westside you'll find the Javits Convention Center, Madison Square Garden, Penn Station, and, further
down, NYU (New York University), and Greenwich Village.
Central Park West runs along the west edge of the park,
and is home to the American Museum of Natural History. Lincoln
Center is also on the west side, at 66th Street. Bordered
on the west by the Hudson River, the Upper West Side
of Manhattan contains some lovely neighborhoods, and includes
Riverside Park and Columbia University.
Of course, these are just a
few of the major areas in New York City. The southern tip of Manhattan (see map) is where you'll find Wall Street, Little Italy,
Chinatown, the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, boats to the Statue of Liberty, and the
Staten Island Ferry.
