Three Ways To Lower Manhattan

Three Ways To Lower Manhattan

April 06, 2020

Just like New York’s five boroughs, Manhattan neighborhoods each have their own personality. Some are just minutes away from the Broadway Plaza Hotel, yet you’ll be surprised how easy it is to recognize the distinct character of each neighborhood.

Want that classic New York City ritz and laid-back downtown vibes? Chelsea has the best of both worlds. The stylish neighborhood boasts high-end art galleries, historic 19th-century townhouses, and glass highrises in equal parts. Chelsea is also home to High Line, a lush public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side.

Trendy SoHo has been dubbed “Manhattan’s Shopping Mall” thanks to many notable fashion designers and fashion houses opening shops on SoHo’s cobblestoned streets. Pair this with castiron architecture and industrial facades, and it’s no wonder why SoHo has long been considered one of New York City’s most charming and desirable neighborhoods.

If you got a penchant for food — and really, who doesn’t? — then the Flatiron District is your neighborhood. For the past few decades, this compact district covering roughly 18th to 27th street has been synonymous with the best dining experiences in New York City including Michelin-star restaurants and world-famous Eataly, a massive Italian marketplace and alfresco dining area.

If you’re feeling torn between neighborhoods, just remember that all of Manhattan is just a New York Minute away from the cozy confines of your hotel room.
