Favorite place I've lived in the city!

Great doorman building - includes a gym, dry cleaning in-building, and laundry room. No brokers fee and rent stabilized! Most apts are recently renovated with brand new appliances (dishwasher!), lots of closet space, and amazing views. Management is nice and receptive. 20 min walk to the law school, or you can take the ACE from port authority or the uptown bus on 10th ave. There's a Food Emporium and CVS less than a block away. It's also a safe area with a lot of great restaurants nearby.

Convenient location and great view and light

Location is convenient with access to two subway stops nearby and access to restaurants and supermarkets. Great open view with lots of natural sunlight. Building is pet friendly with gym and laundry included. Doormen are friendly and helpful although mail sometimes gets misplaced.

3BR

The apartment is converted from a 2br to a 3br. Management restricts the type of wall that can be used, no ceiling and no physical door. They create a "walk-about" which works for us but may not be for everyone. The location is great for school, you can walk or use transportation: take the M11 bus up 10th ave or the A one stop to 59th st. Overall great building in an extremely convenient location.

Great Value in Great Location

I have lived on a high floor of a (flex) 3 bed, 2 bath for 7 years and have stayed this long because nothing else I ever looked at came close to the quality, size, and location at that price. The original living room is very large (~20'x12'), so it comfortably flexes to another bedroom while still leaving a very reasonable living area.

The floor-to-ceiling windows provide for spectacular views, particularly facing south, since this is the last tall building at this point west for quite some distance. That being said, they also produce a greenhouse effect, so the rooms heat up very quickly, even in winter, so be ready to use AC.

The staff are absolutely wonderful. All of the doormen are incredibly helpful and accommodating, especially if you make even the slightest effort to learn their names and greet them regularly. Any maintenance requests were usually taken care of in less than a day while I was at work (like AC issues, fridge issues, etc), since there is a full-time maintenance staff. They even introduced online rent payment recently, which is a nice plus. They also have a laundry and dry cleaning valet at an incredibly reasonable price. Wash-and-fold is usually done same day while dry-cleaning is two or three days.

The gym is very good (7/10), and even as a regular gym-goer (NYSC), this most certainly was acceptable if I wanted to stay in the building from time to time. Dumbbells up to 50 lbs, a bench, some exercise balls, and several basic, well-maintained machines.

The laundry room is also large and recently renovated with reliable, good equipment. The price per wash and dry is about $2.75 each for the normal-sized machines, which are pretty big. There are huge machines also available.

There isn't a true roof deck on the top, but the fourth floor terrace is great for small outdoor gatherings with friends or tanning during the summer.

The location is perfect since it is far enough away from Times Square to not have too many tourists, but close enough to all of those transit stops to make it a piece of cake to get pretty much anywhere except the UES. Very close to A,C,E,N,Q,R,S,7,1,2,3. There isn't too much on the current block (yet - there is construction on a new hotel going on now - no noise issues as of now), but you're right at the bottom of Hell's Kitchen with all of its great bars and restaurants.

All in all, a great place. Well maintained, responsive staff, great location, good gym and laundry, and all for a reasonable price.

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.
A mix of city and residential. It can get a little louder than I would like, particularly during the weekends. It's close to a lot of good food places, but they are kind of pricey.
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.
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
Very densely populated area. Not much greenery but the park overlooking the NYC skyline is amazing. Lot's of Cuban and Latin American cuisine.
I've lived on the Upper East Side, the East Village, and Murray Hill - so I thought I wouldn't like living in an area so close to tourist attractions like Port Authority and Times Square. But the area pleasantly surprised me - there are great restaurants and bars nearby and it's not that touristy unless you walk towards 8th ave. We're a 10 minute walk to the Hudson, where there are biking and running paths, and a dog park.
Great neighborhood with a lot of restaurants, bars, shops. A lot of young people in the neighborhood. Being so close to Grand Central is a plus.
