Here is the situation, my prospective employer is on the SW corner of Madison and 42nd street, very close to Grand Central. It is the PWC building. I am looking for an apartment building that is very close to there.

And by walking distance I dont mean something thats 0.8 miles away or something, I have to wear dress shoes. So I am more looking for something thats like get out of bed, cross the street, and be at work. Yep, so I don't even have to pay for the subway.

Any advice appreciated, thank you.

the closest residential neighborhood will be murray hill, where there are many apartments in the high 30s along madison and park avenue. needless to say, whether condos, coops, or rentals, these will not be cheap. if you can drag your high-heeled self a bit further east and take the cross town bus to work. there is sometime more reasonably priced stuff at tudor city -- 41st through 43rd st between 1st and 2nd, over by the UN.

Thank you very much... I didn't know the neighborhood names so at least I have something to go on now. And I don't actually wear high heels, I am a male so I wear normal dress shoes. But those are more than bad enough for walking in New York as I found out yesterday.

Wear sneakers until you get to work like the rest of us do.

Does anyone live in the Archstone Murray Hill by chance? This is the closest thing I can find to what I am looking for:

I only wear dress shoes and walk a mile from the train to my aparment in the East Village every day. You get used to it. The trick is to get high quality shoes. Cheap shoes hurt and fall apart quickly.
