Knowing the address of your Manhattan destination doesn't guarantee you know where your going. If you have the avenue address number for your particular destination, there's a simple chart to help you locate which NYC street your destination is closest to.

  1. Take the address. (Example: Guggenheim Museum - 1071 Fifth Ave)
  2. Drop the last Figure. (Gugenheim Museum - 107)
  3. Use the chart below to determine what to do next. (For the Guggenheim, the Manhattan Address Chart Locator tells you to subtract 18 from 107, the number you got from step two.)
  4. The Guggenheim Museum is closest to 89th Street. (107-18=89)

There are many ways to find directions in Manhattan.

In this age of modern technology, other than NY maps, there are several other ways to locate the address of your NYC destination. Here are a few simple ways to find your New York address in Manhattan.

  • Ask Your Hotel's Concierge: After all, that's what they're there for! Your NYC hotel concierge is happy to assist with you any directions you need, and can also lead you towards some of the most popular NY destinations in Manhattan. Feel free to ask your NY hotel concierge which NYC subway stop to get on and off of, as well as any other NYC address questions you might have.
  • Check Online: New York addresses and directions can easily be found online. If you find yourself in a pinch, most NY hotel front desks are happy to find directions for you, and many will even print them off if you plan on driving there yourself. 
  • Download an App: With so many NYC tourists now using smart phones, downloading an NYC map application on your phone is convenient and simple. Also, downloading GPS to your phone is helpful when driving or walking in New York City.
  • Ask for Directions: When in doubt, don't be too shy to ask for directions to your Manhattan NY address. New Yorkers get it all the time, and the majority of them are happy to send you in the right direction. 

Perhaps the best advice we can give you when attempting to find a NYC address from the streets of New York is to keep your phone charged, and have a plan before you leave. Check the NYCTourist map of New York ahead of time to plan your route, and use your phone in case you get lost.
