Hudson Yards Farmers Market

October 2017

Hudson Yards’ Down to Earth Farmers Market is one of most dynamic markets in the city. The “there’s something for everyone” trope is wildly overused, so we’ll just say this: if you enjoy fresh produce, vibrant soups and salads, mouthwatering baked goods, authentic kimchi and every kind of pickle your heart desires, you’ll love this place. From June through the middle of November, vendors from all over New York and New Jersey come to display their meticulously crafted fare. Fortunate residents of the 555TEN luxury rentals are right down the block from this charming market, which runs every Thursday from 10am-6pm through November 16th.

Here’s a rundown of some of our favorite vendors at the market:

Horman’s Pickles

Since the 1950s, the Horman family has been in the pickle business, and it shows. According to the “Picklosophy” section of their website, Nick Horman states that after graduating college, he realized his mission in life was to “create quality pickles that could show people what a pickle could, and should, be.” He takes pickles seriously. From classic dill and bread & butter to brown mustard, horseradish, sweet cajun, spicy sour, and a variety called “red flannel,” their pickles make sure that all taste buds feel welcome.

Kimchi Kooks

Many New Yorkers see kimchi as a chic, new superfood, but the art of preparing fresh kimchi began over 1,500 years ago, in Korea. The owner of Kimchi Kooks, Kate Kook, is continuing the tradition while adding a contemporary flair. As Kook notes, her technique has been passed down for generations. What truly separates Kook’s kimchi is how she plays off that foundation to create intriguing products like kale kimchi and cabbage and beets kimchi, which sit alongside original white kimchi and other classic varieties.

Nemeth Orchards

Nemeth Orchards has been selling their fare at farmers markets in the city for 30 years, and by all accounts, they’ve been a hit from day one. You’d be hard-pressed to find a fresher or more delicious apple pie than Nemeth’s. Everything they sell, from their sinfully sweet muffins and pastries to their aromatic apple cider, is made from the apples and berries they grow. On a brisk fall evening, there is nothing better than some warm pie from Nemeth.

Simply Soupreme

Fresh soup is another seasonal staple, and Simply Soupreme has you covered and then some. Their line of dairy-free, gluten-free, carrageenan-free, additive-free, drinkable soups not only cater to an array of dietary restrictions, but they are filled with nutrients and are (most importantly) delicious. From classics like tomato basil and lemongrass miso to more avant-garde options like cucumber mint, carrot ginger, pumpkin pie, and butternut-apple flavors, there’s something for all palates here.

These are just a few of the vendors frequenting the Down to Earth Market this fall. Click here for a full rundown.

No Dog Walker, No Problem

October 2017

Owning a pet in New York City can be challenging at times—and stressful. Finding a capable groomer, reliable pet-sitter, punctual dog walker, and talented trainer can be an arduous exercise. But for residents of the Midtown West apartments at 555TEN, every pet service imaginable is available right at home, courtesy of the renowned pet care experts at Throw Me A Bone.

If there is a building more pet-luxurious, not simply pet-friendly, we’ve yet to find it; this is as all-encompassing as it gets.

Throw Me A Bone and 555TEN offer “pet-specific amenities” that include a grooming spa, a veterinary clinic, a daycare facility, and a covered, outdoor play space where pups can socialize with their four-legged neighbors. As for services, they offer dog walking, cat sitting, grooming, traditional training sessions, training boot camps, in home drop-bys, overnight care, 2-hour play session, house call vet visits, and “yappy hours.”  For those who are unaware, “yappy hour” is a dog/owner social gathering. Your pup can get to know other pups, and you can get to know your neighbors.

One of the biggest stressors for the NYC dog owner is ensuring your dog gets enough outdoor time and enough exercise. At 555TEN, your dog can spend the day playing with other dogs or exploring the neighborhood. If you’re stuck late at the office, there’s no need to worry about your pal being cooped up inside all day. Moreover, on the days you are home to take your dog for a stroll, the Pier 84 dog run is right nearby and is open year-round.

When building this pet-centric partnership, 555TEN wanted to collaborate with the best in boutique pet care, and that’s why they chose Throw Me A Bone. They are dedicated experts who take their job very seriously—and it shows. They always take meticulous care, and, above all else, they really love the pets.

The services offered will free you (the fortunate resident of the 555TEN luxury rentals) to spend more quality time with your dog, while not having to worry as much about the daily details. You can rest assured that your pet is being pampered, and/or worked out, and/or groomed while you’re stuck at work. A bit of jealousy may set in when you begin to realize your dog is living his/her best life while you toil the day away. But it’s a welcome revelation.

In the 555X Residences, located in the tallest part of 555TEN, you will inhabit spaces that Forino has helped to make light and serene via a choice of elegant paint palettes to give your home a personal touch, as well as an exclusive light fixture whose lines capture the elegance of her aesthetic. New York Post article listed her as one of the “20 biggest power players in New York City real estate” and described her “as one of New York’s most sought-after interior designers,” who uses “elegant, old-world design touches…executed with the clean, modern finishes coveted by today’s buyers.”

In an interview with luxe. interiors + design magazine about what inspires her, Forino said, “I love looking at how fashion designers put palettes together, especially at haute couture shows. The pieces that walk down those runways are works of art.” When you look at a room that Forino has helped to pull together, you see the work of a visionary who knows how art infuses design. And her work is completely in line with the vision behind the the 555X Residences, which, as part of this merging of beauty with purpose, will also include top-of-the-line, chef-quality kitchen appliances from Miele and a uniquely designed backsplash.
