Now Nikki Bella Doesn’t Want Kids Until Her 40s

Twin wrestlers Brie and Nikki Bella recently posed for a shoot at 555TEN, the Midtown luxury apartments serving as the perfect backdrop for the famous duo. The athletes discussed motherhood, relationships, and their careers while posing beside 555TEN’s travertine-accented indoor saltwater pool, part of the building’s health and wellness floor, which also contains a state-of-the-art-fitness center, complete with cardio equipment, including Peloton bikes and the Nexersys Boxing Exergame. The pair also struck poses on the building’s 56th-story observation deck beside its rooftop pool, with the sights of the city reflected in the background.

Jonathan Adler’s Maximalist Model Apartment at 555TEN

Jonathan Adler, who has been called “the authority on Modern American glamour since 1993,” has a genius for juxtaposing elegance with a sense of play, a trait which is everywhere apparent in the model apartment he has designed for the luxury Midtown rentals at 555TEN. As the man who hung a sign in his shop that reads “minimalism is a bummer,” he has taken his talent for striking the fine balance of clean lines and eye-catching shapes and patterns and run with it. His use of the space in 555TEN’s apartment highlights the stunning views, the gracefully constructed layouts of these homes, and their exquisite features like double-paned window walls that minimize noise via state-of-the-art acoustic technology. And, as a way to start their own customization process and channel the creativity of a master of design like Adler, residents are invited to make their own mark on their apartments by choosing a dark or light “Extell Choice” finish. The “Sunrise” or “Sunset” shades will accent wooden floors throughout the homes, the millwork in the modern kitchens, and the vanities in the Porcelanosa-tiled bathrooms with Waterworks fixtures.

Here is a look inside the Jonathan Adler model, which uses all the innate beauty and refined touches of the 555TEN rental homes to great effect.

As soon as you walk in, the Globo Console in the entryway will be the perfect introduction to Adler’s aesthetic. With its sleek white lacquer cabinet top, brass legs, and blue cabochons, it suggests a Hollywood starlet’s vanity and a Kubrick spacecraft so graceful it will prepare you for liftoff into Adler’s stratosphere, where each object of the home is a friendly, useful work of art.

Down the hall, you will find the living room, anchored by the Baxter Sofa and punctuated by the Pompidou Chair, whose continuous back and arms are as comfortable to be enveloped in as they are satisfying to look at. The whole room combines plushness and a light color palette with gleaming accents that mimic the way sunlight reflects off the buildings that make up the lovely skyline view.

The dining room centerpiece is the Caracas Table, which features an hourglass-shaped antiqued brass base and a pristine circular top that is ideal for lavish dinner parties and for catching the light pouring in through the corner windows. The master bedroom, which focuses on neutral color tones and accents of green and pink, contains a Connery King Bed, whose headboard and footboard manage to create a modernist piece that is paradoxically reminiscent of the beds of kings. In a signature move, Adler has added to the room his Large Mongolian Lamb Bench, whose interaction of hard and soft echoes the other textural juxtapositions throughout the home, creating a feeling of total comfort, imagination, and luxury.

In the kids’ room, Adler charges full steam ahead with lots of options for sitting, sleeping, and playing. The Maxime Lounge Chair has such a low-slung, wide, and cushioned seat that it encourages the best kind of sprawling. The Moroccan Pouf becomes equal parts chair and toy. It’s an excellent addition to a residence where the furniture is meant to please the eye, pamper the body, and give life that unexpected twist that keeps things interesting, in the true spirit of the Hudson Yards rental apartments at 555TEN.

The Return of Summer on the Hudson

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! (No, not “that” time of year.) We’re talking summer, particularly summer in NYC when the Parks Department holds Summer on the Hudson: a celebration of art, culture, and physical fitness in Riverside Park. The 555TEN luxury rentals, just minutes from the waterfront, bring you close to the Hudson’s concerts, dance performances, yoga classes, cardio sessions, and much more. Keep your mind and body moving from now until October with something for everyone just around the way from 555TEN’s Midtown West apartments.

Warm-weather wandering is always better when you’re feeling fit and ready to move and groove. Name your fave, and Summer on the Hudson probably provides it. Do you regularly perform a sun salutation followed by a downward facing dog? Stretch it all out with Yoga Flow after work, when veteran Nina Semczuk leads you on your yoga journey to more strength, greater flexibility, increased balance, and focus—all in the great outdoors. Never had a knack for those poses? Don’t fret. Pilates in the Park has you covered in your quest for a stronger core, body alignment, and, above all else, more energy. Of course, if you’re simply looking to lose a few pounds and get your heart pumping, Butt and Gut with veteran Donald Calliste will do both AND provide you with more tone and definition. Fitness fans, rejoice: Summer on the Hudson is here to help. Whatever your routine, switch it up on occasion with any number of dance classes or even some tai chi.

Summer on the Hudson also provides cinephiles and music lovers endless opportunities to indulge in new works and old favorites. Pack a blanket and some snacks and head to the Pier 1 Picture Show for an evening screening of Summer Wars, WALL-E, or Up. Grab a set of headphones and “quietly club” with the rowdiest no-noise event ever at the Silent Disco. This unique all-ages spectacular features live DJs spinning tunes while party-goers dance the night away in seemingly silent splendor. Or bring your friends and be the main attraction as you sing it loud and sing it proud at #TotallyPublicKaraoke. Don’t miss the Sweet Spot Festival featuring summer soundtracks of reggae, soulful house, disco, and Afro-beat music—all spun by a variety of “North America’s most-renowned sound architects.” If you love a sunset (and don’t we all?), make a play for Amplified Sundays with its live, infinitely danceable music playing through until day turns to night.

If you’ve got kids, then you won’t want to miss the numerous activities that Summer on the Hudson has planned for both the young and the young at heart. Learn a little something together about the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater’s efforts to restore the harbor. Missed the last eclipse? Then come out on a Sunday when the Amateur Astronomers Association brings out their solar telescopes. These special instruments are designed to allow for safe sungazing and sunspot spotting in the full light of the summer sky. Not sure what you’d like to do? Attend a Game Day for giant tic tac toe, lawn bowling, hopscotch, and jump rope. Play Dates and Super Soccer Stars give those under the age of five the activity that they need and crave and a matched dose of focused time that moms and dads will love.

Top 10 Coolest Rooftop Pools in NYC

The Midtown rentals at 555TEN are home to one of the city’s most eye-catching amenities: a rooftop pool located 56 stories above street level. The Extell-developed luxury tower is capped by not only the expansive swimming pool, but a rooftop deck outfitted with a lounge, bar, indoor/outdoor fireplace, private cabanas, and stunning views of the Hudson River. The rooftop pool isn’t residents’ only chance to take a dip, however: when the weather gets cooler, they can relax in the building’s indoor saltwater lap pool.
