5 NYC Rentals With Outdoor Pools to Beat the August Heat, Off The Mrkt

The summer heat may be at its peak, but residents of 555TEN have an easy way to keep cool right at home. Atop the 56-story building’s Midtown luxury apartments sits a stunning roof deck with a spacious pool and sweeping views of the city and the East River from its perch 650 feet above street level. In addition to taking a dip, residents can relax in one of the roof deck’s private cabanas or on a chaise lounge or enjoy some quality time at the building’s all-seasons club and bar.


555TEN’s Midtown West

With summer in full swing, bicycling along the Hudson River Park or soaking in the sights, shops, and sounds of Midtown West are just a few ways to take advantage of the sunny weather and the best the city has to offer. Residents of the 555TEN luxury rentals can enjoy an unparalleled suite of rooftop amenities, including the pool, sundeck with cabanas, and club and bar, perfect for lounging with the latest bestseller and a well-deserved cocktail. But just a stone’s throw away from these Midtown West apartments is the Hudson River Greenway, which provides abundant options for staying active while soaking in the greenery and the great outdoors. And, of course, the ideal way to cap off a summer evening is a meal from one of the city’s finest restaurants, which are serving their world-class fare for no-contact delivery, takeout, and limited outdoor dining.

For a breezy jaunt on a bright weekend afternoon or a long-distance cycling session to keep in shape, the Hudson River Greenway is the right destination. One of New York City’s most welcoming outdoor spaces, the well-maintained thoroughfare extends over 12 miles across the West Side of Manhattan, just parallel to the Hudson River, and offers spectacular, unobstructed water views. The Greenway is also removed from city traffic, with separate lanes for cyclists and pedestrian traffic, for added safety and convenience. For additional summer action (or relaxation), the pathway is dotted by kayaking facilities and well-manicured lawns for rest or a casual picnic, as well as playgrounds and basketball courts for an impromptu pickup game.

After a day in the sun, 555TEN residents can return home to prepare a replenishing meal, with the aid of top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances and quartz-stone countertops, ideal for spreading out and preparing the season’s freshest ingredients. But for maximum convenience, a range of superb dining options are all close by. For the latest from veteran chefs David Bank and Brian Ghaw, Taladwat features what Eater NY describes as “exceptionally delicious” seasonal Thai. Their authentic “countryside” recipes represent the best of Thailand’s regional cuisine, with a range of coconut stews, satisfying mains, and a colorful assortment of spice-infused dishes. Order the tom turmeric with a thick crab cake as its centerpiece, or the pork belly in a sweet and spicy soy broth, or anything really, for convenient takeout or delivery to your door.

One of the neighborhood’s perennial crowd-pleasers, B Side, serves up brick-oven pizza baked to perfection. The crust is quite chewy, and their inventive signature pizzas include the Carbonara, which combines fontina, pancetta, panna with egg, and the Killer Bee, which mixes sweet and spicy with soppressata, garlic puree, chili oil, and honey. For a healthy accompaniment, the roasted Brussel sprouts or black kale salad with pickled, dried apricots, almonds, and mint present the same complexity of flavors as B Side’s beloved pizzas.

For a pastry to accompany your morning coffee or for a warm, crackling baguette to accompany every meal of the week, a visit to Sullivan Street Bakery is in order. This quintessentially New York City bakery was founded by Jim Lahey, the first recipient of the James Beard Award for Outstanding Baker, and has become the destination for foodies and anyone who appreciates an exquisitely baked loaf of bread. The soft community loaf, cornetto, pains au chocolate, focaccia pizza, and pasta, among other delectable goods, are now available for delivery and pickup, along with their cookbooks, which will enable you to recreate some of Lahey’s tasty treats at home.

With a wealth of options for each meal of the day—and for staying active with fresh air, sun, and Hudson River views—residents of the luxury apartments for rent at 555TEN can always make the most of the summer, all within the dynamic Midtown West neighborhood.

In addition to the pool, the 56-story tower offers residents access to an amenity-packed roof, where they can relax on a chaise lounge or in a private cabana, explore the building’s all-season club and bar, or warm up in front of the indoor/outdoor fireplace when the temperature dips.

555TEN: In-Person and Virtual Appointments in Midtown West

Social distancing guidelines are now a part and parcel of daily life in New York City — and 555TEN is no exception. The team here has created a comfortable viewing experience designed to keep prospective new residents safe, while showing them all that these Midtown West apartments have to offer. Here’s what you can expect.

Take a Virtual Tour
Think you might be interested in renting at 555TEN? The first step is a virtual tour. Request one from the leasing team, and you’ll receive high-quality video footage of these luxury rentals — from studios to three-bedroom apartments. Then, from the comfort and safety of your current home, you’ll “walk” through the 555TEN apartments, admiring such features as double-paned window walls, rich wood floors, open-aspect kitchens gleaming with quartz stone counters, and luxurious Porcelanosa-tiled bathrooms.

Because it’s a virtual tour, you can pause and go back as many times as you like. (You can even take a break to have a cup of tea!) If you have questions after the tour — either about the apartments or what the Midtown West district has to offer — you’ll be able to speak to a knowledgeable member of the team online or on the phone.

Take an In-Person Tour
If 555TEN seems right for you, book an in-person tour with the team, so you can see these residences in the flesh. Prior to your arrival, you’ll need to complete a COVID disclosure form, to ensure you understand and adhere to current health and safety policies. When the time for your appointment comes around, your designated leasing agent — and the prospect and broker, if present — will be wearing personal protective equipment.

Throughout your in-person tour of the apartment, social distancing will be maintained. That means you can picture life in your new home safely. At the end of the tour, the rental agent will wash their hands and sanitize, while keeping their mask on. It’s a great time to ask them any remaining questions you might have.

Get to Know the Neighborhood
Before or after your tour, take the opportunity to stroll around Midtown West. From 555TEN, you’ll be within easy walking distance of a slew of coffee shops, restaurants, and supermarkets, not to mention the Theater District and Hudson Yards. If you and your friends or family want to continue discussing your move, why not head to nearby Hudson River Park, where you can sip coffee, gaze out over the Hudson River, and embrace the tranquility. Soon enough, this may be your new local park.
