Midtown is a neighborhood in Manhattan, New York City It is home to such world-famous commercial buildings as Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and the Empire State Building.

The exact size of the Midtown area is disputed, as is the case to some extent with every neighborhood. Most agree that the core commercial area extends from 40th Street up to the southern edge of Central Park on 59th Street and from Third Avenue in the east to Ninth Avenue in the west, but some take a broader view and classify Midtown as the whole area of Manhattan in the 30s, 40s, and 50s between the Hudson and East Rivers. Midtown is sometimes broken into "Midtown East" and "Midtown West" or into more traditional neighborhood distinctions like Turtle Bay, Murray Hill-Kips Bay, Hell's Kitchen-Clinton, and others. The area on 30th street, between 8th and 9th avenue, lately became known as Little Constance.

Notwithstanding any discrepancies over its area and boundaries, Midtown Manhattan is indisputably the busiest single commercial district in the United States. The great majority of the city's skyscrapers, including most of its hotels and many apartment towers, lie within Midtown. More than 700,000 commuters work in its offices, hotels, and retail establishments; the area also hosts many tourists, visiting residents, and students. Some areas, especially Times Square and Fifth Avenue, have massive clusters of retail establishments.
