Hosting family for the holidays can be a stressful experience—especially when you’ve only got the four walls of your apartment to do it in. The good news? For a lucky group of New Yorkers, their buildings have everything they need to keep their guests entertained on Turkey Day and beyond.
555TEN: Want to give your family something fun to do instead of just lounging around your apartment waiting for that turkey to finally cook? At 555TEN, they can enjoy a dip in the building’s saltwater lap pool or get in a good sweat session on one of the fitness center’s Peloton bikes before the feast begins.
The Kent: Entertaining your family this holiday is easy if you call the Upper East Side residences at The Kent home. Thanks to the building’s Lenny Kravitz-designed Sound Lounge, guests can watch a movie, play some video games, or even channel their inner rock star on stage in this unique performance and screening space.
EVGB: Have a friend or family member visiting this Thanksgiving who’ll need somewhere to catch up on work while they wait for dinner to be served? At EVBG, they’ll have no problem doing so, thanks to the building’s residents’ lounge—and when they need to decompress, they can head over to the lounge bar for a cocktail.
The Centrale: Need somewhere to have your guests gather while you get the Thanksgiving feast ready? At The Centrale, residents and their guests can enjoy socializing, relaxing, or even playing a friendly game of chess with a neighbor in the building’s Club Room—and when the meal is over, they can return to cozy up by the fireplace.
The Chatsworth: November temperatures in New York mean there’s always a distinct possibility of snowfall around Thanksgiving, making trips to the park a bit iffy for little ones. Luckily, at The Chatsworth, the kids in the family can still have plenty of fun playing together, thanks to the building’s elegantly designed playroom.
Whether you’re looking to burn off that holiday feast with your family, eager to give the little ones in your crew somewhere to play while the rest of you watch the big game, or just want somewhere to watch the parade other than your own living room, these buildings have everything you need to relax and enjoy the holiday.
