One of Manhattan’s best qualities is its unique and varied neighborhoods. ‘Life in’ provides a taste of New York City’s distinct sub-cultures to help you find the perfect place to call home.
A sliver of several historic Manhattan neighborhoods, life in 10010 combines exquisite architectural detail with modern high-rises. Anchored by NoMad to the north, Flatiron to the West and Gramercy to the south, 10010 boasts beautiful buildings and one of Manhattan’s favorite parks: Madison Square Park.
Favored by locals and visitors alike due to its central location, 10010 is whirling with a mix of recent graduates, young professionals and families. Home to the highly recognizable Flatiron Building and both CORE’s One Madison and 141 Fifth Avenue, the area offers an easy mix of luxury high-rises and quaint townhouse walk-ups.
For those that need a serious java jolt to kickstart the day, enjoy a caffeinated beverage at FIKA or My Way Cup Coffee. Or if you’re wanting to enjoy a leisurely, yet delicious rustic brunch, head to Maialino or Almond. But if you’re more of the rise-and-grind type, hustle over to SLT, Mendez Boxing or New York Racquet Club to really feel the burn. Of course, if it’s sunny – or even if it’s not – head over to Madison Square Park and enjoy the art installations that are changed seasonally, and the abundance of greenery. And then there’s Shake Shack, which you probably don’t want to skip out on either.
In need of a work-from-home day not at home? Enjoy a productive few hours at the ultra exclusive, well-designed NeueHouse. Or simply spend your afternoon moseying down Broadway or Fifth Avenue for an abundance of retail and home decor shops. And if marketing is your thing, enjoy the freshest produce, florals and proteins at the Union Square Greenmarket.
For a strictly Italian feasting extravaganza, eat your way through Eataly and enjoy a refreshing libation at the rooftop bar La Birreria. For a slightly more elegant and quiet atmosphere delight your tastebuds at Eleven Madison Park or Upland, a favorite of President Barack Obama.
As the sun sets, take in stunning views with a smooth cocktail atop The Clocktower at the Edition Hotel or the rooftop terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel as you let it sink in that you can do this all again tomorrow.
