Fun, modern, community-oriented apartment building with amazing amenities!

This is our (me + my husband) second year living in our one bedroom apartment in West Chelsea. After two years at the AVA Highline, we plan on living here for many more! The apartment itself is a large 1-bedroom apartment, located on the 7th floor (with southwest exposure); complete with floor-to-ceiling windows; open kitchen with plenty of counter space; in-apartment washer + dryer; and lots of space (700+ square feet, to be exact) for entertaining. The building itself is very new (we were among the first residents to move in), with state-of-the-art amenities, including a rooftop lounge, with views of the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center; a backyard with barbecues, a fire pit, and a ping pong table; ample lounge space in the lobby; bike storage; an in-building gym; and even a pet-wash station (yes, it's a pet-friendly building too ($600 one-time fee for each pet). Management is also incredibly involved and responsive to any and all of our needs: from maintenance issues; to package acceptance; to throwing community-building mixers and events. The residents themselves skew towards the younger side, which is something important to keep in mind (i.e. potential issues with noise, etc.). Otherwise, life at AVA has been nothing short of amazing; and I would definitely recommend this building to anyone looking for a fun, modern place to live in Manhattan.

Smart & Modern Design

AVA Highline is more than a home. Living here feels quite luxurious. My boyfriend and I were the first residents to move into our apartment. We have a very large terrace (for New York) which is hard to come by in the city. The design of our apartment is modern with an efficient and smart design. I love the convenience of the gym on the main floor. The outdoor amenities are also very nice, although rarely used by my boyfriend and I since we have our own private oasis. Very friendly staff. My only complaint is the constant construction that is going on in this area. Since we moved, I wake up to construction every day from the new Zaha Hadid building. We used to have an open view, but now look directly at the building. Other than that, which is beyond the AVA's control, I love living here.

Paying for amenities you can't get anywhere else!

I've really enjoyed living at AVA! I haven't been able to find an apartment in the same neighborhood that has a washer/dryer in the apartment, HUGE bathroom, spacious closet, brand new kitchen and outdoor terrace for the rent price I am paying. Great building and amenities! Sometimes in the summer there can be a lot of noise with parties on other terraces or in the outdoor backyard but that is also kind of expected. Additionally, the area has a lot of construction going on so sleeping in is not super peaceful on the weekends!

Neighborhood is great. very safe. There is a 24 hour Duane Reade right on the corner, a yoga studio next door, dry cleaner next door and Gristedes one block away. Lots of restaurants just a few blocks down. A movie theatre in Kips bay. Indian grocery stores and restaurants on Lexington ave and 28th street. Trader Joe's around there somewhere too. The closest train station is Grand Central which can get quite crowded and is a 10-12 minute walk away from the building.
I walk about 20 minutes to school, but it’s a walk through a great part of town. I have easy access to subway lines, lots of grocery stores, and I enjoy running on the west side highway. It’s also nice to be a close distance (but not necessarily TOO close) to Penn Station for travel purposes.
The neighborhood has a ton of cool bars and restaurants around along with grocery shops like Trader Joe's. Its vibrant but not a party location like some of the places in either Village so its never too loud.
Pros: close to both the ACE and the 7 subway lines; Amtrak/NJ Transit at Penn Station; and Bolt and Mega Bus by the Javits Center. The High Line is right up the street from my apartment, which takes you straight to Meatpacking and Chelsea Market. Lots of restaurants and bars nearby in Chelsea. Also a short walk to Whole Foods and 6th avenue shopping.

Cons: A bit of a walk to get to grocery stores, coffee shops, and pharmacies (~3-5 blocks). Lots of construction! Hudson Yards construction is 24/7; and the construction on 28th street between 10th and 11th avenue also goes into the weekend. The Scores and Eagle Bar noise isn't as bad, but it can get noisy on late weekend nights, with drunk and rowdy patrons smoking outside.
My apartment experience has been very good so far. It is in a very safe neighborhood and due to the location in East Midtown Manhattan, my building is in the center of public transportation, restaurants, stores, Bloomingdale's, movie theaters, gyms, etc. The only down side is that due to the way one or two of the streets nearby are located, one has to watch for pedestrian accidents as my mother had an accident when she was crossing the street and had the right of way. It can also be noisy but that's part of living in Manhattan.
PROS
* Easily accessible from a majority of transit hubs.
* Tremendous investment on the part of private and public entities, so there's a lot of development and renewarl.
* Proximity to Javits Center, Penn Station, and Time Square make it heavily policed and quite safe.

CONS
* NOISE--from the Lincoln Tunnel, the Javits, the River, the tourists, but above all else the construction
* Proximity to Javits Center, Penn Station, and Time Square can suck the character out of the location. Don't move here if you're looking to easily find a neighborhood with it's own personality (your local coffee place is going to be Starbucks and your local Italian place is going to be a hike if you want anything other than Sbarro/Olive Garden).
I think that Hell's Kitchen is one of the most underrated neighborhoods at Stern. It is a great location, between Stern and Central Park. During the summer, it's perfect! You can walk up to Central Park, go to the Hudson River, and avoid Times Square. The neighborhood has a lot of restaurants and bars as well - which make it a fun place to live. The commute to Stern is short - about 30 minutes. The only con is that the supermarkets in this area are slightly expensive (i.e. Whole Foods), and the open markets close pretty early.
Great. We live definitely closer to the West side - as in by Union Square. The farther east you go the idea is it becomes less safe. Lots to do, lots to see, and a straight shot to school
