Great views are not always determined by how high in the sky you are–location plays a major part. Each neighborhood provides a different perspective on what makes New York City great, and sometimes things line up so that particular apartments reap the rewards. Here are some classic views currently on the market.
The Empire State Building, the Hudson River, Chelsea’s historic London Terrace towers and the newest New York City icon, the High Line park, are what you’ll find when looking out the windows of this Chelsea beauty, in an Annabelle Seldorf-designed building on the neighborhood’s “Architect’s Row.” Even traditionalists would appreciate the walls of windows that lead to views this good.
Our foray into Midtown yesterday got us thinking more about the neighborhood and its conveniences — like being walking distance from Central Park, the Theater District and the city’s best shopping, as well as the quick access to nearly every other desirable neighborhood in Manhattan. With that in mind, let’s highlight some of our other favorite listings in the area.
Imagine the buzz and excitement of Times Square being right at your doorstep. Rising 17 stories above the din of Crossroads of the World, this one-bedroom oasis with floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony is perfect for those who want to be immersed in the sights and sounds of New York City. Best of all, the full-service building sports a number of luxury amenities, like a lounge/bar area, landscaped outdoor space, state-of-the-art gym and putting green. Just remember, live here and you’re going to be getting a lot of phone calls from friends and family around New Year’s Eve time.
