Things to Do in Manhattan
Andaz 5th Avenue is steps away from exciting Manhattan things to do and New York City’s most famous attractions, including the Beaux-Arts landmark “main branch” building of the New York Public Library, Empire State Building, Central Park, Times Square and the Theater District. Just a stroll away, the Bryant Park neighborhood is not only one of New York’s most fashionable, but also its most walkable.
The vibrant culture of New York City is the perfect setting for visitors to enjoy year round activities, events and outdoor recreation. From historic landmarks and buildings to world-class shopping and dining, New York City has something for everyone. Catch an award-winning show on Broadway or see a Metropolitan Opera performance at Lincoln Center for Performing Arts.
Attractions at Central Park
Discover Bryant Park in Manhattan, 1 block from Andaz 5th Avenue, and NYC's famous Central Park and Zoo about 2 miles north of the hotel.
New York Public Library
The magnificent marble Beaux Arts building, with its grand staircase flanked by iconic lions, is far more than New York City’s favorite public reading room.
Grand Central Terminal
Built by “Commodore” Cornelius Vanderbilt to serve his shipping empire, New York’s central depot has been New York’s busiest crossroads since the 1870s.
Fewer sights are more recognizable than the ice skating rink; the neon lights of the 1930s Art Deco extravaganza, Radio City Music Hall; and the gargantuan Christmas tree that has lit midtown Manhattan for 75 years.
The crowded crossroads is a hub for Broadway theatergoers and New Year’s Eve partiers who make the pilgrimage for the annual ball-drop and has become one of New York’s most family-friendly playgrounds.
Madison Square Garden
Carole King and James Taylor; Iron Maiden; giant animatronic dinosaurs: You can see them all, plus the New York Knicks, the Rangers, and of course the contenders when it’s “Fight Night” at “The Garden.”
