Yeah, It's Midtown. But the Apartments Are Beautiful

Talk about live-work: Residents of this neighborhood — and yes, it is one, despite being so nonspecific, so corporate, so, well, midtown — don't have far to go on their commute if they're employed by any of the hundreds of firms that call it home base. And that's precisely the attraction: proximity to the office, shopping, Carnegie Hall, and nearly everything else you need. (Want to shop for groceries? Whole Foods is nearby. See a Broadway show? Have your pick. Unplug? Destination: Central Park.) Still, the din and activity aren't for everybody, and the tourists are enough to make you pine for Vermont (or, at least, the Upper West Side). Perhaps that's why apartments here are surprisingly elegant; they serve as sanctuaries from the city's omnipresence. After the jump, a list of in-town getaways hosting open houses this weekend. —S.
