Business Travelers in a NutShell
The business traveler will
be best served in either the Midtown or Wall Street areas.
Wall Street, at the southern end of Manhattan, lays claim
to the New York Stock Exchange and hundreds of corporate
offices in streets lined with skyscrapers. Name an industry,
it's represented here. If you want to be close to that board
meeting, with plenty of places to meet for dinner and after
dinner drinks, Wall Street will serve you well. In the evenings,
many of the smaller shops will be closed, but the South
Street Seaport, with its collection of restaurants, clothiers
and galleries maintains the late night New York atmosphere.
If you plan to shack up on Wall Street, a good place to
start is the Marriott Financial Center. Like the Wall Street
area, Midtown houses a great number of corporate entities.
Midtown, the area centered around Grand Central Terminal
at Park Avenue and 42nd Street, boasts easy access to transportation.
The business traveler can use a Midtown hub to get to and
from the airport, to travel to the many corporate headquarters
that are just outside the city, for instance in Westchester
County or Northern New Jersey. And if you want to see more
of New York City than just the inside of a boardroom, it
is relatively easy to travel to other areas of the city
from this central location.
