There’s no denying that New York City has long been considered a prime destination for people from around the world, the kind of place where dreams are pursued, fortunes are made, and life maintains a non-stop pace 24 hours a day. In fact, New York is so enthralling its population continues to grow at astounding rates, with 447,565 new residents joining the city’s ranks since 2010 alone. However, when it comes to finding the perfect place to live, not every apartment is created equal. If you’re looking for the ideal spot to call home, look no further than these dreamy NYC residences:
If your job means spending long hours downtown, wouldn’t it be nice to end those days at the office without a lengthy commute home? If you’re looking for convenience, look no further than 25 Park Row. This gorgeous modern luxury building is loaded with vintage charm and boasts some of the city’s most stunning waterfront views, as well.
The Upper West Side has long been one of the city’s premier cultural hubs, and with good reason: from museums to Michelin-starred restaurants, the neighborhood has everything you want and more, right at your fingertips. Better yet, this esteemed enclave is home to 200 Amsterdam, a luxury condo that will soon be the neighborhood’s second-tallest building.
If you love old-world charm and modern convenience, you’ll fall in love with The Belnord in an instant. This luxury building was originally built in 1908 and retains much of the original architectural detail from that period, from sizeable inner courtyards to intricate exterior detailing above each of the building’s windows and doorways. Recently reimagined by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, the building is now home to luxe modern residences and a wealth of amenities, from concierge service to a private lounge for residents.
Want to call one of the city’s most unique buildings home? Then look no further than 180 East 88th Street. This modern Upper East Side masterpiece, designed by DDG, offers oversized residences with stunning views of Central Park and both upper and lower Manhattan, as well as amenities like a game room, residents’ lounge, wine storage, children’s playroom, and half-basketball court.
The city’s most famous thoroughfare just got a whole lot more inviting, thanks to 1010 Park Avenue. Developed by Extell and designed by Beyer Blinder Belle, the Upper East Side building is home to 11 meticulously-designed residences from David Collins Studio, each with private elevator entry, spacious great rooms, and custom kitchens from Smallbone of Devizes.
There are few New York neighborhoods as cool as Harlem, and luckily, New Yorkers eager to enjoy this unique enclave can call The Rennie home. In addition to its sleek modern homes, the building is home to a suite of plush amenities, including al fresco rooftop grilling and dining space, an attended lobby, party room and entertaining terrace, and a 25-year 421-a tax abatement that can save buyers a huge chunk of change.
If living in the clouds seems like a dream to you, you’ll love Central Park Tower. This ultra-tall Extell project is a true Midtown marvel, standing 1,550 feet tall upon completion, making it the city’s second-tallest building after One World Trade Center.
Amazon isn’t the only thing drawing residents to Long Island City these days. The Dieguez Fridman and Beyer Blinder Belle-designed Long Island City condos at CORTE, a modern luxury building on 44th Drive, are a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Better yet, in addition to the homes themselves, residents can also enjoy amenities like a 24-hour doorman, fitness center, kids’ playroom, private storage and parking, and a landscaped roof deck with stunning city views.
If you’re eager to live in Manhattan, but not ready to buy, Aro is the perfect home for you. The West Midtown luxury tower has all the bells and whistles of a condo, from floor-to-ceiling windows offering city views, chef’s kitchens, marble baths, and luxe amenities like a rooftop pool and a state-of-the-art fitness center, but its homes are available to rent, not buy.
Downtown luxury is finally available in rental form, thanks to the East Village rentals at EVGB. These modern luxury homes—available in light and dark finish packages—are charming enough as it is, but it’s their amenities that really stand out. In addition to an indoor pool, fitness center, and attended lobby, renters can also enjoy a landscaped roof deck perfect for al fresco dining, bocce, yoga, and putting practice, as well as a stylish indoor residents’ lounge.
Whether you’re looking for uptown style or downtown cool, a rental or a condo, New York has the perfect home for you. The right apartment for you is out there, all that’s left to do is look.
