A traditionally very commercial neighborhood, the Midtown East district is known for its luxury shopping on 5th Ave as well as iconic architecture like the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building.


The Midtown East historically is recognized as a commercial community filled with offices, department stores, and luxury retailers.

The vast majority of families and residents live in multifamily housing, more specifically, 93% live in housing with 10 or more units in a 3.1 square miles radius. In addition, 30% of housing is two bedroom apartments and three bedroom apartments. This supports a population density of 45,536 people per square mile, compared to NYC at 30,000 people per square mile or roughly, 1.5 times more densely populated than Manhattan.


Midtown East density is what provides for a culturally rich and lively environment. In addition, its mix of studio apartment rentals, 1 bedroom apartment rentals, 2 bedroom apartment rentals, and 3 bedroom apartment rentals support a diverse, thriving community.

The parks are a focal point for the community and are actively used by residents and Tudor City neighbors alike.

Continually, Midtown East has become defined by change, yet it’s committed to being a business hub. On July 27, 2017, Crains published an article profiling the Midtown East rezoning. The article states, “A City Council subcommittee approved the long-awaited rezoning of Midtown East Thursday. The new rules will allow developers to build larger office towers than currently allowed in exchange for improvements for pedestrians and commuters. “The plan allows bigger development near subway stations all around East Midtown, and allows for density to be earned by doing transit improvements,” City Councilman Dan Garodnick said during a council hearing. “This is certainly the right place to put lots of new density near Grand Central, one of our most important regional hubs.””
