Dwell Diaries provides a peek at a “day-in-the-life” in one of CORE’s exclusive listings. From master suites to neighborhood hotspots, our diary doesn’t spare a detail!
Waking up in the expansive master bedroom at 151 West 17th Street, 3G never gets tiring – especially when it’s the size of most New York City studios. Footsteps away, you will find an en-suite marble bathroom with a soaking tub and separate glass shower. Who needs a spa day when you can find peace and relaxation so close to home?
Should you desire a quiet breakfast at home, it’s easy to do so in this loft-like Chelsea home. Floor-to-ceiling windows accompany a spacious chef’s kitchen – perfect for experimenting your culinary skills with a decadent petit déjeuner. There’s no shortage of coffee shops and breakfast bars too. The Commons Chelsea, just around the corner, is the perfect stop for a coffee and croissant when on the run.
Galleries galore dot the Chelsea streets but other cultural gems like the Rubin Museum are a must for a weekend afternoon. The Monumental Lhasa is just one of many exhibitions to see into the New Year. Afterwards, take a detour on the way home and gather easy inspiration for dinner at the Union Square Greenmarket. Organic and local vegetables, specialty seafood and homemade baked goods are just a few of the items to peruse while navigating the lively outdoor market.
For those who prefer to end the day with a casual bistro dinner, it’s an absolute must to dine out at longtime neighborhood favorites like Le Singe Vert or Le Zie. Fancy authentic Greek fare instead? Periyali on 20th Street might just transport you to a sunset dinner along the Mediterranean. A short walk to the heart of the West Village to wrap up the evening provides some reprieve after a busy day in Chelsea. Culture, proximity and space – what more could you ask for at 151 West 17th Street, 3G?
