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!

See first thing I wrote. Kips bay/murray hill has a great bar and restaurant scene, very young. You don't really go out Friday/Saturday night here, not enough dancing type bars, but it's awesome for just about every other occasion. Central location for everywhere that you would go in any situation though.
East village is great because it is close to school with a great restaurant and bar scene. The only down side is that there are a few hospitals in the area, which means that there are a few more homeless people around than some other areas, especially during the summer, since they are often picked up and then discharged. It doesn't feel unsafe because of the homeless people, but it isn't the most pleasant part of the neighborhood.
Very post college and fratty. Busy. But, an extremely convenient place to live to get anywhere in the city. Close to grand central. Two blocks from trader joes and live aboce Duane reade. Good restaurants in the area for dinner.
Tons of bars and restaurants, which is important for my social life on weekends, especially with the late hours we work during the week. My biggest complaint about the neighborhood is that it is very dirty.
Chelsea is a great neighborhood. A lot of good restaurants and bars, cute galleries, near the highline. Although a lot of the places to go out are pretty nice and on the pricier side.
Kind of seems like an oasis at first because there is grass and a fountain and trees and squirrels amidst the otherwise endless gray of NYC, but feels stale after a while.
Pro: Great places to eat, close to multiple transit lines, and Broadway shows.

Con: Can be loud and tourist heavy during certain hours.
Lived here for five years and absolutely love it. Near mass transit, Central Park, and many restaurants and bars.
