For history and architecture buffs, the Seagram building is one of the best skyscrapers in Midtown. It has just gone through a painstaking and expensive restoration. The architect was Mies Van Der Rohe, the icon of modernist architecture. It stands out for its simplicity, its functionality, its clean lines, and its quality materials. It's setback from the street was innovative... More

Ludwig van Mies der Rohe's Seagram Building was one of the original modern skyscrapers, and has had a tremendous influence on modern architecture since. There is an outdoor plaza on Park Avenue that has sculptures from the times. It's a nice place to stop and rest.

The architect who designed this in 1954 used only part of the lot, thus avoiding a zoning requirement for tall buildings to have setback design. The resulting structure, even though offering less rental space than usual, attracted tenants and investors, because of its grace, the exterior and the public plaza, part of the original design. In fact, the success of... More

The Seagram Building is a gorgeous skyscraper on Park Avenue in between 52nd and 53rd Street and they put a new sculpture up in front of this summer. The Four Seasons restaurant is inside.

Nothing too remarkable about this one, although the sculpture out the front on Park Ave is quite impressive. Not really too sure that this one really requires anyone to go out of their way to visit.

The Seagram is not only from an architectural point of view very interesting, but also a charming building to visit and especially to dine. The building, planned by Mies van der Rohe (in cooperation with Johnson) was finished in 1958. It's remarkable style and construction are on the one hand and even more beautiful, the Four seasons restaurant on the... More

I didn't go in beyond the foyer but even an external exploration is worthwhile at this Mies masterpiece, I believe his only New York work. Set back behind a splendid public podium with interesting modern sculpture, this is an elegant and refined building so typical of the architect. It has had an enormous influence on other buildings around the world... More

This Skyscraper is famous as a masterpiece of modern architecture, and up close I can see why. Mies Van Der Rohe's principles are very much in evidence here- careful attention to detail and proportion, and use of the finest materials that a project's budget will allow for. The plaza is a nice space despite its lack of ornament, the fountains... More

Interesting architecture and an always revolving set of artistic statues and sculptures make it worth a quick walk past. Used to work here and while the outside is a great example of early New York office building architecture, the inside is dark and dreary. There are often interesting art exhibits being showcased in front or in the lobby. Always seems... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
