Best bike route through midtown manhattan?

What's the best way to get across midtown Manhattan by bicycle? Looking at bike maps of the city, it seems there's no bike lanes going East-West between the lower 20s and wayy up in 90th St (on the east side) and 77th St (on the west side) Assuming I want to get across town by travelling in the 50s (or reasonably close to that), which street(s) should I take for the safest, least traffic-rife ride?

Retro bike racks wanted but not found.

I recently purchased a new bicycle. A GT Kustom Kruiser Moto Glide to be specific. This is my first bike since college and also the first that's I've actually ridden regularly. It has become apparent that I should get some some type of rack/basket. The problem I am encountering is all the ones I can find are very square and boring (for example). What I would like is something that would be more in line with the bike's aesthetics. Prefer to purchase, but not against a DIY solution if you have any ideas.
