Is MiMa The Hot New Manhattan Nabe?

Tired of LES?

Sick of Nolita?

Bored with NoHo?

Furious at FiDi?

Still furious even though it's now known as SoMa?

Well, get your ass together and move to MiMa!

No, not the modern-art museum.

It's the neighborhood that stands for "Middle of Manhattan."

Actually, it's a luxury tower of rentals and condos at 450 West 42nd Street, but it's coming to signify that whole neck of the woods.

It's sort of north of Chelsea Clinton and west of Midtown and part of HK.

Oh, heck, it's just MiMa and I think it's just NAGAIS.

(I.e., Not As Good As It Sounds.)

why would anyone in their right mind move to midtown?

"Cause walkin', instead of climbin' down subway stairs, or gettin' in and out of taxis, to go the theatah is easier for the aged.

A friend of mine lives on 31st between 5th & B'way. I understand they're calling this area SoFi now. What the hell does that stand for? I don't like that far western area of 42nd Street. The ghost of Angel Melendez flies around at night on white, feathery wings.

MiMa is generally a place you walk through to get somewhere, but I wouldn't mind living in the Osborne.

They need the new monicker to try to sell real estate in this climate, but by any name it still feels like West 42nd Street.

I'll stick with the Village.
