Studio Apartment at 2nd Avenue, Kips Bay

Very good, 4.2 from 2 reviews

East Village , New York

A colourful 2nd floor 1 bed studio in a down-to-earth part of town – this is a real find. An expertly allocated apartment designed with scale and precision to produce a creative and welcoming space. The foundations of this studio are the modern quality fittings, the exposed brick work in the living room and thoughtful use of space in the kitchen. Everything else; the splashes of colour, contemporary art work, Nordic inspired furnishings and floor lamps lift this large open plan flat into a sociable and inspirational home.

The bedroom zone benefits from two windows and yet feels cosy and inviting. The simple lounge zone is perfectly practical and free of clutter, while the breakfast bar in the kitchen adapts into valuable work tops or an informal dining table.

The lovely long entrance hall breaks up the space and the modern bathroom has a brand new suite and a wet room style shower.

Kips Bay is a casual low-key part of a town that is miraculously serene despite its proximity to bustling Midtown. Perhaps it’s the breeze from the East River, or the omnipresent peak of the Empire State Building; whatever it is, Kips Bay has a quiet confidence and a very warm welcome.

By day friendly dog walkers meander through town and at night the bright lights of theatres and bars bring Kips Bay to life. At the Shelbourne Murray Hill Hotel, take the lift up to the 16th Floor and the Rare View rooftop bar where you’re actively encouraged to take a load off on an actual bed, sip Mango Margaritas and enjoy breath-taking views across the city.

Head over to Marco Pipolo’s Marcony where you can enjoy home-made Italian delights at crisp white linen tables. To make the most of the stunning views across the river, several venues along the bay host seasonal al fresco events in fine weather so it’s worth doing your homework and booking in advance.
