Midtown is located in the geographical center of the island, and roughly bounded by North Roosevelt Boulevard (U.S. Route 1), Leon Street, Atlantic Boulevard and 1st Avenue.
When tiny Key West proper ran out of development room in the 1940s and ‘50s, Key West simply built more island, adding the Midtown and New Town areas of Key West. Using dredging to create landfill, Key West more than doubled its square miles and opened the city to thousands of new homes and retail development.
There are two distinct areas of Midtown – east and west. Midtown West, lies between White Street and Palm Avenue or 1st Street, as it’s also known, and stretches from North Roosevelt Boulevard to the Atlantic Ocean. Its homes more closely resemble the Old Town and Meadows architecture of Conch cottages, though most of the homes are more likely to be classified as Mid-Century modern.
Midtown East lies between 1st Street and 9th Street and stretches from North Roosevelt to the Atlantic. Both neighborhoods are home almost exclusively to long-time Key West residents.
