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.

Midtown Reviews

I always feel safe and welcome. The people are very nice and talkative. The sights are truly remarkable and living in Midtown is an extraordinary experience, especially with the bar and restaurant scene, the entertainment scene, and so forth. Even Central Park is a wonderland to explore in itself and can be done freely. What's also a highlight about this location is the accessibility of places and people around you; everything is in walking distance, unless you're looking to venture to another area of New York City. You will never run out of places to explore and people to engage with, as people are always traveling to and from New York City - it is a melting pot of many cultures and ethnicities and one of the most diverse places in the world.
I LOVE living in Chelsea. It's close enough to the office so the commute isn't bad but there is so much good food and nightlife around you so you feel very connected socially.
Close enough to school and most of the areas you go out, not super far from the subway, and it's really pretty quiet for a neighborhood in the heart of NYC.
5 minute walk to Trader Joe's. Target in-building. Fairway 3 minute walk away. Several bars and restaurants nearby on Third Ave. 40 minute walk to Washington Square Park area. 10 minute walk to the closest subway (the 6), but there are bus lanes nearby. Incredibly close to two major hospitals (great during the COVID age, but lots of ambulance sirens).
Flatiron has beautiful architecture and is very convenient to work
depends on whether you like midtown - I enjoy being near Bryant Park, theater district, Madison Square Park, etc. There's four major subway lines that are a 1-5 min walk so it's super easy to get anywhere in the city. 15 min commute to school
Quiet neighborhood all the way on the East side. Close to bars, restaurants, etc. but removed enough to be on the quiet side. Close to a walking/bike path along the East River.
Gramercy is awesome, lots of great restaurants and date spots. Easy to get EV for later in the night, or lower east via 4/5/6.
