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.
Midtown East has always been one of our favorite residential communities, with quiet streets, parks and East River access that not a lot of neighborhoods can boast. Sutton Place is a beautiful enclave known for its wealthy residents and costly apartments, but this white-glove one-bedroom is reasonably priced and in great condition, thanks to a smart renovation.
We couldn’t put together this list and leave out a glamorous penthouse, could we? This massive duplex has one of the most attractive renovations around and enough private terrace space to make you question ever leaving the apartment. Not including the outdoor spaces, our favorite features have to be the double height ceilings and some of the most gorgeous views of the city that money can buy. This one’s not for beginners.
