“Water views” in New York City real estate don’t necessarily need to signify a pair of rivers. Check out the view from the One Museum Mile rooftop of Central Park’s Harlem Meer, the man-made lake (”Meer” is Dutch for “lake”) designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. Last night One Museum Mile hosted members of the press for a “Discover Our Neighborhood” panel discussion, followed by a reception at star chef Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster restaurant. Of course, some attendees took some time to admire the views, like New York Daily News real estate reporter Gina Pace, who tweeted the above photo (along with some others). For more tweets and photos, check out the One Museum Mile Twitter page.
We know we’ve been talking about our new project, 1280 Fifth Avenue, a lot lately. So today we’ll just show off a little of what we’re so excited about. Here’s a beautiful view of Central Park from the building, including the Harlem Meer (”meer” is Dutch for “lake”), a name that salutes the area’s early settlers. Hidden by the fall foliage near the lower left corner of the photo is the Bernard Family Playground, which enjoys some great views itself. Not bad for a front yard, right?
