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.

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.
