Attractions/Points of Interest
The Clinton Manhattan neighborhood overlaps the eastern boundary at Eighth Avenue where Times Square is located, which is well known as its theater district featuring Broadway and Off Broadway plays. With Clinton Manhattan being so close to Broadway theaters and broadcasting television studios, the area is also recognized as an actor's neighborhood as both aspiring and established actors have made the area a haven for actors and actresses. As the Clinton Manhattan neighborhood is at the center surrounding Midtown, its proximity to New York City's more traditional landmarks such as the Empire State Building, The Statue of Liberty, Central Park, and the famous Metropolitan Museum of Art are only a short distance away in their respective direction.

Ninth Avenue on the West Side is a culturally diverse area where many of the popular restaurants are located. Restaurant Row on 46th Street in Midtown Manhattan between 8th and 9th Avenue is a section comprised of a stretch of small restaurants such as Becco's and Sangria Lattanzi and features food of much diversity from American, Greek, Italian to Mexican, Thai, and Turkish restaurants. Every May, one of the oldest street fairs and a favorite among New Yorkers, The 9th Avenue Association's International Food Festival, is held that stretches from 37th to 57th Street. Over a million visitors attend the festival every year to celebrate an appreciation for cultural diversity through food and entertainment.

Parks/Recreation
The Clinton Community Garden, on West 48th Street between 9th and 10th Avenue, was created in 1977 as part of a cleanup effort by residents of the area to clean up the debris of a 28 year old vacant and turned it into a community garden where volunteers can participate in gardening and maintaining the well-being of all plant life in the park. The Garden is officially a park land under license from the New York City Parks Department and is open all year round. A key to the Garden can be obtained by anyone who lives or works within the Clinton area of 34th and 59th Street.
