In addition to the spacious dwellings, residents have plenty to explore in their building, including three floors of art gallery space, wine caves, a guest lobby with a built-in library, the beautiful Park View Lounge and perhaps most impressive the inviting indoor/outdoor foot-lap pool.
It’s no secret that Midtown Manhattan is a commercial center, teeming with the city’s best food, shopping, pristine parks and cultural attractions. Designer names line the storefronts on Fifth Avenue, the city’s most popular destination for high-end shopping. In addition to having VIP status at MoMA, arts lovers will enjoy the close proximity to world renowned venues like Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center, home of the New York City Ballet, The New York Philharmonic, one of the city’s most celebrated Broadway theatres and much more. Of course, with this many attractions you can assume a critically acclaimed restaurant isn’t far away. Try one of the Michelin Star-rated restaurants at the nearby Shops at Columbus Circle inside the Time Warner Center. Celebrity chefs like Thomas Keller, Masayoshi Takayama and many more bring their finest to this popular upscale shopping mall. In fact, the collection of bars and restaurants at Time Warner Center earned seven Michelin stars in 2011, and new additions continue to earn status at this happening hot spot.
For those who prefer to spend their free time getting in touch with the outdoors, the close proximity to Central Park’s main entrance at 5th Avenue and 59th Street will provide that pop of nature that is so often needed when living in a concrete jungle. Take a stroll just two blocks south of the park to 56th Street and 57th Avenue to visit Carnegie Hall, one of the city’s most prized live performance venues for orchestras, operatic singers, musicians and more.
