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.
Some of the most serene views in Manhattan belong to the buildings facing the East River that dot the edges of Sutton Place and its surrounding neighborhoods. It’s an iconic view, and one you’ll get from the corner 2BR/2BA apartment listed by CORE’s Elisabeth Kee at 25 Sutton Place South. Waking up to postcard views of the river is great, but we also love this night view (especially around the holidays), with the Queensboro Bridge twinkling with light like the world’s biggest Christmas tree.
