Get Out of the Office

In our technological age, we can work from almost anywhere. When your home is at 555TEN’s Hudson Yards apartments, where the standards of luxury and convenience are as high and far-reaching as the views, you may find it harder and harder to leave for work in the morning. Luckily, with 555TEN’s amenities, building-wide Wi-Fi, and work-friendly environment, you can make that desire a reality. You may, in fact, find that the expansive outdoor and live-work spaces in the building, in addition to your masterfully appointed apartment, will give you not only greater ease, but an increase in inspiration and productivity.

At 555TEN, you can set up a home office where the parameters lie well beyond your own apartment. On chillier days, you can get cozy with your laptop in front of the fire in the 56th floor bar/lounge and work while taking in the views through the floor-to-ceiling windows. In the summer, you can take a conference call from a poolside chaise lounge. The rooftop means you can work alfresco whenever you want to feel the breeze or catch the sunset as you transition smoothly from work to play right where you are.

With so many options, it’s easy to combat the ever-dreaded health risks of being stuck at your desk all day. At  the 555TEN luxury rentals, you can transform a work break into a relaxing dip in the pool—getting to the water is a matter of feet instead of blocks or miles. Or, make it a workout break—take advantage of 555TEN’s Health and Wellness floor where you can get your cardio fix, do a high-intensity interval workout on a Peloton stationary bike, let off any work-related steam with the Nexersys Boxing Exergame, or take a yoga class. With a studio that’s also open to you to use on your own, you can develop your personal yoga practice, tailor-made to work with your needs and work schedule.

Working in and around 555TEN also means you don’t have to feel isolated by the convenience of working from home. The 555TEN community will always be there to help you feel more connected to other people “IRL.” But when privacy is what you crave as you work from home, or is something you need for especially important projects, your apartment just may be the perfect home office space. With double-paned windows to offer you the peaceful views of the city without the noise, and with interior designer Paris Forino’s serene color and texture combinations as a backdrop, work will start to feel like a seamless part of luxury New York living.

A Quartet of Local Sweets

Relaxing with a decadent treat after a tough work week can be a highly effective stress-reliever. Never underestimate the power of eating something monumentally delectable.

If you’re fortunate enough to live in one of the 555TEN luxury rentals in Midtown West, you’ll find yourself very close to many stellar options for flavorful indulgence. Here are four of our favorites:

Magnolia Bakery  |  1240 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10020

Just a few avenues east of 555TEN sits one of the city’s best bakeries. For over two decades, Magnolia has been creating incredible pies, cakes, cupcakes, scones, muffins, cookies, brownies, bars, and pretty much anything else sweet. Their cupcakes are amazing, and they rotate throughout the week, so they provide a calendar on their site to help patrons know exactly when their favorite flavor will be available. Their apple crumb pie is wonderful, and their famous banana pudding is the best in town. Go. Go now!

Baked by Melissa  |  526 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10018

A quick 10-minute stroll, and you’re in tiny-cupcake heaven. If you’ve been to a party in the last year or so, there’s a good chance someone brought a box of Baked by Melissa’s delightful bite-sized cupcakes. It’s kind of like a tapas experience for cupcakes. Instead of having to decide on one, you can try three of four flavors or more. The flavors are inventive and unique. They have everything from pb&j and Key lime to cookie dough, hot cocoa to mint cookie, electric tie-dye to chocolate chip pancake. They even have equally delicious gluten-free cupcakes! Each bite is its own experience.

Pinkberry  |  596 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10036

The frozen yogurt craze has ushered in many interesting options, but Pinkberry is our favorite, and it’s only four blocks from 555TEN. It’s their well-balanced flavors and the freshness of their yogurt and variety of toppings that put them a step above the competition. Currently, they are serving cinnamon churro, salted caramel, chocolate hazelnut, mango, coconut milk coconut, and a bunch of others. If you like something tart—they have you covered; if you like something sweet—they have you covered; if you like a bit of both—well, you get the point. The best part of Pinkberry is the ability to customize your dessert with any combination of their 27 toppings.

Little Pie Company  |  424 West 43rd Street, New York, NY 10036

For over 30 years, Little Pie Company has been offering up a stellar cast of pies in their, as they describe it, “theater of baking.” It’s a famous locale for good reason; the aroma of their cinnamon apple pie swirls through the street, almost daring you not to go in and try it. Luckily, it’s only a few blocks from 555TEN. Strawberry rhubarb, sour cream apple walnut, Key lime, three berry, Mississippi mud, and banana coconut cream are insanely delicious staples, and inventive, seasonal additions pop in and out periodically. The pies are made from locally sourced ingredients and are truly as fresh as can be.

Hudson River Park is Beautiful in the Winter

Haven’t yet spent a day at Hudson River Park? There’s no need to wait for spring. In fact, this 550-acre oasis, running alongside the Hudson, is a perennial beauty with endless activities to engage in. Next time you have a free afternoon, wrap up warm and make the short trip over from 555TEN. Here’s a generous handful of ideas for winter park inspiration.

Take a scenic stroll

Nothing rejuvenates mind, body, and soul like a brisk winter walk—especially when it takes in the scenic waterside of the Hudson. Put on your best walking boots and stroll a strip of the park. Planning on taking a furry friend with you? Four dedicated dog parks are dotted along the routes; let them off the leash and watch them make new pals, while you enjoy a hot coffee and a sit-down. Bringing children? They can let off steam at one of the four play parks. One of them even allows you to operate a miniature canal!

Appreciate alfresco art

Hudson River Park Pier has its own outdoor art gallery. Count the masterpieces that line the waterside, including the beautiful stainless-steel water wheel known as “Long Time;” the Serpentine Structures, which deftly reflect the surroundings; and The Apple, a fruit in bronze, which weighs three tons (talk about the Big Apple). If you fancy getting crafty yourself, how about trying your hand at boat building? No-fee community lessons are held in the park during the winter months.

Get on the water

Whether or not you crafted your own vessel, there are ample opportunities to get out on the Hudson, courtesy of the park’s superb facilities. Enroll in a community sailing or rowing course or explore the Hudson with the Manhattan Kayak Company. If you prefer to sail in the lap of luxury, take a dining cruise or board the anchored 142-foot sailboat “Grand Banks” and tuck into a plate of sustainably sourced oysters while quaffing a nautically inspired cocktail.

Meet with someone for a drink or dinner

Good cuisine is abundant at Hudson River Park, making it the perfect place to meet with friends and loved ones. Dine decadently on calamari and tuna tartare at Hudson’s; tuck into tasty snacks without the guilt at Sweet Love Snack Bar at Pier 25; or sip fine vintages paired with Chilean sea bass and blood orange pot au creme at City Vineyard.

Get stuck into sports

After all that indulgence, you might want to consider a little fitness and wellbeing. The park caters to healthy urges in style—even during the colder months. Dance figure eights at the indoor ice rink (or just succeed in staying upright), tackle Chelsea Piers’ 30-foot-high rock climbing wall, work on your baseball swing in one of the batting cages, or simply hike and bike—and see how much of this incredible park you can cover in a day.
