Empire State Building
Whether you’re toasting the day with a cocktail from our own Spyglass Rooftop Bar or gazing out the window of your Empire view room, this cultural icon is easy to admire from afar. The Empire State Building stands an impressive 102 stories high — it's the fifth-tallest building in the United States and 34th in the world — and is worth seeing up close, too. A five-minute walk from Archer, you'll find art deco ceiling murals and a one-of-a-kind observation deck experience. A timely tip: Purchase the express pass and skip the long lines.
Once the hub of American fashion and garment factories, the fabric of this neighborhood between Fifth Avenue and Ninth Avenue and 34th Street and 42nd Street is threaded with attractions. Also known as the Fashion District, this area is home to many showrooms — design, production and wholesale. You'll also find tech startups, a range of restaurants and art centers. M&J Trimming, Mood Fabrics, The Fashion Walk of Fame and Culture Espresso are stylish neighborhood stops.
A giant and very central slice of big-city heaven, midtown is the apex of interest for all, separating upper and lower Manhattan. Such landmarks as Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, Museum of Modern Art (home of Archer’s favorite Blue Sky umbrella), Radio City Music Hall, Broadway, Madison Square Garden, Fifth Avenue and Macy’s on 34th Street are the headliner attractions.
