"A Street Hidden From Mainstream New Yorkers"

If you asked someone about 44th St, they would say "what street." The main reason is that not too many people speak about this street. It foreshadows 42nd St. For this reason, not too many people know about it. However, if you were to take a walk down the street, you would find it has affordable housing, many offices and companies have buildings, stores, and residential buildings.
  • Plenty of stores
  • Plenty of restaurants
  • Plenty of office buildings
  • Unknown street

"Most forgotten street"

The W 44th street is the mostly forgotten street in the midtown, but it is good place to live with the affordable cost, in this street there are some good finds between the 05th and 08th avenues, this street has the good food shop of "Viva pancho" in it, and also it has "Old belasco" theater in it, also it has little jewelers.... there are some offices and companies... mostly this street is suitable for all the peoples because it looks very piece fully...

"All the glitz without the glory."

West 44th street is almost a forgotten street. 42nd street and the glitz and glamour has eclipsed the streets surrounding it but there are some great finds on 44th street as well between 5th and 8th avenues. There are many offices and companies in the area, but the street also intersects the famous time square. Because of it's location there is a ton of through traffic which can be a bit annoying for those walking around. Viva Pancho is a great food stop. It has a ton of atmosphere and great fajitas for those passing by. 44th does not get the glory it rightfully deserves. Tourists should step off 42nd and check out this gem.

"A wonderful street with a lot to offer....."

This is one of my favorite streets in Midtown. Not only are there some wonderful little jewels of hotels on 44th, like the Algonquin and the Iroquois, there is the wonderful old Belasco theater, still one of the premier theater experience hotels in the Theater District. A great thing to do on a Saturday, is to stroll down 44th (or any of the 40’s off Fifth Avenue) and look up at all the businesses in the upper floors. Unless you make an effort to look up, you don’t realize how many little specialty places there are left, like button companies, or print shops.
