I worked in Midtown Manhattan for 7 years. Most of the days, it seems to be the center of universe.
With tourists wondering around 5th Ave, locals going to work, the area can get hectic sometimes. That being said, my favorite place to clear my mind and hide from the chaos is the New York City Public Library. It's located on 5th ave and 42nd street, next to the Bryant Park. The library is more than just a place to read and study. It's more like a museum. I managed to meet my friend SiQin here before heading out to our dinner party. This place will always be my favorite spot in Midtown Manhattan.
