"Commercial street"

29th is just another boring Murray Hill / way too close to Midtown street. It's mostly high rises and commercial spaces with no energy, restaurants . . .nothing but people walking to work or away from the neighborhood. This has got to be one of my least favorite areas that isn't scary. It's just nothing.
There are actually two sights to see on 29th between Lexington and Park which is sort of a rarity in Murray Hill. There's a great Belgium restaurant called Resto (it's better than Markt but not as fun). And, there's the seedy Deauville Hotel -- a seedy hotel where Sid Vicious was living when he died. Having even one thing to see in this neighborhood is major so two is practically Christmas.
The block between Park and Madison is just as boring as you would imagine so you can't get too excited after the first block of the neighborhood. There are a bunch of high rises -- a lot of them have UN offices in them. There are a few vacant spaces where boring high rises haven't gone up yet. And, there is a bizarre hotel with an interesting past. It used to be a women's only residence (Jacqueline Susann wrote Valley of the Dolls here) and then was a massive dance club where Madonna was discovered and Sade once worked. I bet it was pretty cool as a club, but as a hotel, it looks kind of sketchy.
Like I said, there's nothing to do or see here. And, there's just no neighborhood vibe. So, unless you were willed a massive apartment, I wouldn't live here.
