Four blocks away from the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Station, this is a lovely apartment of generous proportions in close proximity to many of Manhattan’s A-list icons. The building itself is really quite impressive. An imposing and we’ll maintained exterior with structural canopy, it is reminiscent of a hotel. In the lobby, the polished finish continues to impress. With a doorman 24 hours a day and a live-in Super, this building is also reassuringly secure.
Enter your apartment directly into the tranquil dining area for four and on to the spacious lounge. A bright room with two windows, a sofa that opens into a double bed for unexpected sleepovers and pop art adds colour to the otherwise paired back, neutral décor.
The zesty bedroom is a great size with an indulgent king size bed and super wide mirrored closets. The kitchen is good size with a big window and all mod-cons. The bathroom has a cool mirrored wall and a bathtub with a showerhead.
We don’t like to drop names but in Midtown East you’re among prestigious company. The Empire State Building, the Rockefeller Centre and Times Square are within walking distance as is the New York Public Library and Grand Central Station.
But Midtown being what it is, even despite these world-class fixtures, there’s more. Observe the neo-gothic intricacies of St Patrick’s Cathedral on 5th Avenue, explore the theatres, galleries and waterfalls inside the Japan Society and take in the stunning Chrysler Building whose sparkling crown and automotive gargoyles exemplify the Machine Age.
Crowd-pleasing retail giants Bergdorf Goodman, Bed Bath & Beyond, Dylan’s Candy Bar, the Apple store on 5th Avenue and FAO Schwartz are just minutes away. Or stroll around the affluent Lennox Hill area, admiring the Victorian Townhouses in awe and envy. Several superb restaurants in the area are tempting too, and a visit for brunch will not break the bank.
