Getting Around NYC From 555TEN

The Midtown West luxury rentals at 555TEN get some of their appeal simply by being at the center of New York City’s action. With proximity to Broadway and world-class museums, Michelin-starred restaurants and beloved food carts patronized by foodies in the know, and, of course, the beating green heart of New York City, Central Park, 555TEN residents are close to many of the city’s more enduring attractions. In addition to all of this, residents have under (and atop) the 555TEN roof every conceivable amenity — including a fitness center with an indoor saltwater pool, a bowling alley, an arcade, a dog park and on-site pet care, and a rooftop pool and sundeck with cabanas — so there’s never any need to venture far from home.

But with the return to the office picking up steam, as well as other more festive activities, like visiting friends in the outer boroughs or trying new Downtown restaurants, commuting around town is back on everyone’s minds. Of course, it’s always possible to call a car or hail a cab from the curb to get from point A to point B. But during the summer months, there’s no method of transportation more pleasurable than a bike ride through the city. Residents with their own bikes can take advantage of 555TEN’s fully equipped indoor bike service station and storage. But these Midtown rentals are also close to multiple Citi Bike stations, making the commute from the West Side of Manhattan to any part of the city a breeze.

With Citi Bike in town, it’s easy to make a quick crosstown trip to the office in the morning, slicing through the rush hour commute. Residents can also take advantage of their proximity to the Hudson River Greenway to enjoy more than 12 miles of spectacular Hudson River views, as well as several of Manhattan’s most beloved parks — from Inwood Hill Park down to The Battery — with ample greenery and rest stops along the way. Best of all, this scenic route provides separate, dedicated paths for pedestrians and bicyclists to keep everyone safe.

When biking isn’t in the cards, the subway is ready 24/7 to take you where you want to go. And 555TEN is only a few blocks from almost every New York City subway line, so you can easily make your way around Manhattan or get to the outer boroughs. These luxury New York rentals are also near to a host of bus routes and offer easy access to Amtrak, New Jersey Transit, and the Long Island Railroad for adventures outside of the city. 

With all these options available for getting around the town, or to escape it for a summer day trip, 555TEN residents will have no trouble leaving the comforts and luxuries of home for their New York City adventures — that is, if they actually want to leave. 

Neighborhood Spotlight: Hell’s Kitchen

Hell’s Kitchen is a devilishly wonderful place to rent an apartment. This Midtown Manhattan neighborhood brims over with brilliant dining and drinking destinations and cultural institutions—not to mention top-class schools and commuting links. Here’s an amuse-bouche of what you’ll find on the doorstep of your luxury apartment at 555TEN.

The Culture

You could fill a thousand weekends with the glut of cultural happenings in Hell’s Kitchen. Report for duty at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, which is based aboard the World War II aircraft carrier “Intrepid,” and peer into the cockpit of F-14s and space shuttles. (You can visit for free on select Fridays.) In need of a soothing stroll? The High Line—located on a disused elevated railway—is one of the world’s most unique parks (plus the views of NYC and the Hudson from up here are something else). As for culture after dark, take the short stroll from your Midtown West apartment to Birdland Jazz Club, where heads have been nodding to noodling jams since 1949.

The Drink and Dining Scene

In this part of NYC’s Midtown West, you’re never far from a decent drink. Pull up a stool at Hellcat Annie’s and taste your way through a dizzying array of local craft beers. For sophisticated sips, check into the sleek deco surrounds of Ada’s Place and sample the Japanese single malts. When it’s time to eat, devour buttermilk pancakes and bubbles for brunch on the rooftop patio at Social Drink & Food. Have lunch at Friedman’s Hell’s Kitchen, featuring food for the soul like matzo ball soup and grilled pastrami Reuben. Or do things in style for dinner with Michelin-starred haute cuisine at Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare.

The All-Important Practicalities

As far as fun’s concerned, this part of Midtown West has you well covered. But what about the practicalities? Hell’s Kitchen has this in spades too. By public transport from 555TEN, it’s just 30 minutes to Wall Street, 40 minutes to Jersey City, and a breezy 25-minute stroll to Rockefeller Center. Got a furry friend who’s always demanding walkies? DeWitt Clinton Park, which is a comfortable 15-minute walk from the luxury apartments at 555TEN, has designated dog runs. GoodMigrations also says there are 14 schools, 60 grocery stores and markets, and more than 800 shops in the neighborhood. Oh, and did we mention that, with its leafy streets, 19th-century architecture, and preservation areas, Hell’s Kitchen is rather beautiful too?
