There’s nothing quite like starting the week in New York City, especially when you can wake up to the downtown charm at 57 Thompson Street, 3A.

Should the office be your destination this morning, 57 Thompson Street, 3A is a short walk to every subway line. But why leave? Everything you need to have the perfect New York City day is right here.
The living room is quiet and peaceful – high ceilings and hardwood floors evoke quintessential pre-war charm. Should you wish to work from home it’s easy to do so in an apartment like this.

Head over to About Coffee on Sullivan Street for a latte and pastry – no tourists to dodge here on the quieter West Soho blocks. There’s also Ground Support Cafe just around the corner, where you can bring your laptop and grab a table for a change of pace while working from home.
