Convenient Location, Great Amenities

The best part about living at Herald Towers is the location. The 34th St Station right outside the apartment complex doors has access to the NQRW and BDFM trains. The 123 and ACE trains are all within 5 minutes walk.

The building itself is on the older side, but management has been making constant improvements. A new gym was finished last year and access is included as part of the lease. There is also a resident lounge available and the rooftop terrace is under maintenance but slated to open again in Spring 2019.

The apartments themselves are relatively spacious, but many have been flexed into units with multiple smaller rooms. Each room has a climate control unit that does not charge additional utility rates. Bathrooms are fairly spacious as well. From my unit on the 11th floor, it can be a bit noisy because the surrounding neighborhood is filled with stores and restaurants. The apartment is pet friendly for cats and dogs.

The complex itself has a doorman available 24/7 and a package room open throughout the day. There is also a dry-cleaning service inside the building.

Great Location, Small but Sufficient Rooms

My favorite part about living at Herald Towers is that the apartment is located in a very accessible part of Manhattan, Herald Square. There is convenient access to the NQRW, BDFM & PATH lines in a station less than a minute walk from the complex. Penn Station and other subway lines are all within a 5 minute walk. Highlights of the surrounding neighborhood include Koreatown, the Empire State building, Madison Square Garden, and much more.

The rooms themselves in Herald Towers are on the smaller side. My roommates and I live in an apartment that was originally a 1 BR apartment that had the living room flexed into two additional apartments. The master bedroom is spacious but the two other rooms are on the smaller side. The apartments in this building have very high ceilings, so there is plenty of vertical space to utilize for storage and shelving.

The complex itself has many amenities. The building is on the older side, but has recently been renovated with a new gym that has a wide range of equipment. In-building laundry is available on the 3rd floor. There is a resident lounge and rooftop lounge that can be reserved for events. Heat and airconditioning are included as part of the rent. There is a doorman at the security desk and the building feels very safe.

The one complaint I have is that management is generally unresponsive via e-mail. Maintenance requests that are submitted through the building portal are addressed promptly, but communicating with management almost necessitates a visit to the leasing office within the building, which is usually only open during normal business hours.

Good location - Too old

The location is great. Lot of subway lines and restaurants.
The building is old, needs renovation. Our apartment has some trouble with the noise of the air conditioning machines and smells from the toilet pipes.

I love my apartment for the location not the actual apartment. We have a nice bathrooom but the apartment itself could be way better for what we pay. Our sunlight is minimal especially in my room where there is no window due to converted rooms. The elevators are constantly breaking but the lobby is nice. The gym's machines are always broken and the TVs dont work but the rooftop is nice.

Couples & Families Welcome!

The Shipyard is a great place for couples and young families. There is an adult pool (on the weekends) and a pool that allows children at all times. It's right on the water, and everything you need is at your fingertips- dog park, playground, bars and restaurants, grocery store, pharmacy, wine store, hair salon, nail salon, garage parking, Starbucks- all within 2 blocks of the apartment.

Great location, not great management

Love the building staff and the location. High ceilings, new kitchens, a gym, but no roof deck. Management is terrible. Building demographic is predominantly 30-40 somethings, many with families. Lots of construction in the area, but that should be finished soon.

Midtown Reviews

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
