"Rather drab and uneventful"

35th starts off its run through the Garment District at 5th with a real mish mosh of businesses and the street remains like that right up until it goes into Hell's Kitchen at 8th Avenue. The block at 5th features a magazine shop, a couple of Korean restaurants, several Karaoke spots and a few little bars that pretend to be for the neighborhood set, but really they're more for tourists. It has a weird energy because of all of the little businesses and the aesthetic of the street is pretty depressing.
The street at Broadway is taken up by Herald Square which is a block long sitting area that is nicely decorated during the holidays but next to impossible in the realm of actually finding a seat thanks to all the tourists in the area. And, the block at 6th has a couple of commercial buildings but is mostly dominated the original Macy's store. This department store is absolutely massive. I love it, though. It's very old looking and beautiful and actually rather elegant for a Macy's. I always pop in here when I'm in the neighborhood because I like the old timey escalators and the turn of the century feel this store still has. It's pretty cool, in my opinion, for a not high end department store.
The street at 7th goes right back into nowhere land with a couple of big commercial buildings and a school. And, then the Garment District is over sooooo. There's nothing really to say about this street aside from only go there if you work there or if you need to go to Macys.

"On W 35th Street"

W 35th ST runs between 5 Av and 11 Av. It is within walking distance from The Empire State Building and Macy’s. It is a crowded and anonymous street, but I like it a lot. I used to spend some great Friday afternoons having drinks at Brendan’s. The good company helped shape my opinion of W 35th St as one of the nicest streets in Midtown Manhattan. There is also an excellent, low-price Korean Restaurant, Chi Dang Gol, which is definitely worth a try.

"Forget this area"

All potential renters or buyers, beware – do not buy or rent in this area… It’s grubby, dirty, noisy and lacks any real charm prevalent in other parts of Manhattan.. It’s also full of awful food chains and discount outlet stores.. The sort of place where if you look hard enough you’ll find a used mattress for $15.. You have been warned..
