New York City 42nd Street
Times Square is one of New York City’s most-visited landmarks and no street encapsulates all this destination has to offer quite like 42nd Street.  It represents the heart of the Big Apple and the ultimate success to actors and actresses looking to make it on stage. But this busy spot has more to offer travelers than just live entertainment. 

In addition to being the center of the theater district and a Times Square thoroughfare, this iconic stretch of street that runs from east to west is also home to several of the city’s most impressive sites. First-time visitors to this east coast city can check out the stunning Grand Central Station, Bryan Park’s urban Oasis, the United Nation’s Headquarters and the New York City Public Library without ever leaving 42nd Street!

Since this is the main artery of one of America’s favorite cities, travelers will find it not only easy to access, but also easy to navigate, thanks to the fact that literally all subway lines lead to 42th Street.  Travelers can take a west side train and wander by foot to the east, or use the number 7 train to journey across the city. Port Authority Bus Terminal and Grand Central Station also make 42nd Street easy to access for those staying just outside the city, too.

Practical Info

Nearly all subways lead to 42nd Street, so travelers will find easy access using the city’s mass transit. Visitors who want to start exploring 42nd Street at Grand Central Terminal should take the 4 or 5 trains, while those looking to check out Bryant Park can take the B, D or F trains. The N, Q and R and 2 and 3 trains are located in Times Square, while the A, C and E trains stop at 42nd Street and 8th Avenue.
