Urban exploration. Global inspiration.

Forget about Times Square. Opt for an authentic New York experience while staying in the center of it all. The Bernic Hotel is located in a historic Midtown Manhattan neighborhood known as Turtle Bay.

From bohemian artist’s playground to cultural capital of the world, Midtown Manhattan was and always will be a bustling hub of creative and visionary power. In the sixties, celebrities flooded Andy Warhol’s first studio, a loft on 47th street famously called The Factory, while Jackie O’ shopped in the neighborhood’s upscale stores. Katherine Hepburn, Bob Dylan, and Stephen Sondheim all once called Turtle Bay home.

Today, you can find inspiration exploring this vibrant neighborhood. The property is just steps away from the United Nations Headquarters, the shops of Fifth Avenue, the center of international corporate headquarters, as well as the leisure attractions of Rockefeller Center and Times Square’s Theater District. Nearby Grand Central Terminal offers easy access to every subway line, making trips to downtown and Brooklyn destinations fast and easy.
