Manhattan is the world's greatest city. It's a city of neighborhoods, and very walkable. It has a transit system that is convenient but does require exact change or token. In addition, there are thousands of yellow taxi's that are usually occupied.
The epicenter of the theater district is 42nd St. and Broadway, and a TKTS booth at that corner sells half-price tickets for that day's performance. Entertainment options in Manhattan are diverse and include several comedy clubs, jazz clubs, opera houses and grand piano rooms. In regard to shopping, you are on the isle of plenty. Prime areas for clothing include 57th St., 5th Avenue, and Madison Avenue. There are several elegant wine shops, gourmet shops, auction houses and galleries. And there is always someone who can get it for you wholesale. On this map and guide we have focused on Mid-Town featuring popular points of interest and some of the best restaurants.
