Hearst Tower is an architectural marvel but you are not allowed inside unless you have a business need to be there. It would be interesting to tour the building, but we were not able to find any tour companies who did this.

Where all magazines you've ever read are published. However, the attraction is the amazing architecture and the waterfall in the lobby. Add this to your must see list when in NYC.

Very beautiful inside and out. The rain water cascading down the walls in side the entrance was magnificent.

The Hearst Tower is steps from Columbus Circle and Central Park, and is an extraordinary architectural achievement. It was the first green building in the city and the first skyscraper to break ground after 9/11.

This is one of New York's more modern structures and is a good example of more recent architecture. It's also interesting how the facade of a heritage building has been maintained with the skyscraper rising from behind it. But unless you're an architect there's not really much of interest for the regular tourist here, at least from the outside.

I marvel every time I pass the Hearst building. What an amazing architectural feat to add a multi story building on top of a historic building. Kudos to the architectural firm that created it.

It is really great and easy to take a look at the Hearst Tower. It is really so centrally located. The A and C trains are nearby. The 1 train is also nearby. Central Park is only a few blocks away. The atrium inside is 4 stories. I have created a YouTube to show the building and the neighborhood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siuzd0xzkpI

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
