Signs like these are strewn across the plaza, welcoming visitors to Midtown.
Among all of the high-end shops and restaurants is the somewhat less glamorous street art of Midtown.
There were plenty of top-tier stores like Guess to be found, with less sophisticated places like FIVE-GUYS scattered between them.
Kiosks selling trinkets like these lined the sidewalks of the plaza.
A young girl runs around the open area, hugging the art as she darts in and out of her parents’ view.
An elderly couple admires the art in the central area of the plaza, looking very much in love.
Trellises wound up this restaurant and those neighboring it in a somewhat secluded area of Midtown.
It seems that Bar Louie is visible from everywhere in Midtown. The words “Eat. Drink. Be Happy,” follow you throughout the plaza.
Open-air restaurants like these lined the streets of Midtown. They were so close that I heard the music playing from the neighboring restaurant as I sat here to have lunch.
Latteria sells it all: coffee, pastries, pasta, and gelato.
The centerpiece of Latteria’s interior is the gelato counter, which displays an array of decadent custard flavors.
The towering building is a sharp contrast to the much smaller shops it neighbors. I heard the sounds of construction on the building around midday. I thought it was street a street percussionist at first, a very bad one.
Construction workers on their way home, or possibly the speakeasy across the street, after a long day of work.
