A World of Cuisine Just Blocks From Home

When it’s time to pick a spot for dinner, living in Midtown Manhattan can be a blessing and a curse. Sure, every type of cuisine under the sun is just moments away, but how are you supposed to choose? And what if you and your dining partners are craving something completely different? Well, residents of the Midtown Manhattan apartments at 555TEN are in luck, thanks to the new Citizens New York food hall, where diners can select from a dozen counter-service eateries, a pair of full-service restaurants, and a bakery-turned-bar. Here’s a rundown of what residents can expect to find at this comprehensive food hall.

Open from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., Citizens New York is home to 10 food kiosks, a coffee shop, a cookie stand, a pair of sit-down restaurants anchored by renowned chefs, two bars, and a to-go shop, all housed in a 40,000-square-foot hall with plenty of seating. The kiosks are great when your party can’t agree on a restaurant, allowing everyone to get something they want and still sit and eat together. Choose from vendors and cuisines including Mediterranean bites at Soom Soom, classic burgers from Umami, succulent sandwiches from Sam’s Crispy Chicken, hearty meals from Stonie Bowls, and more. Vegetarian guests will love Plant Nation, while visitors with a sweet tooth will want to swing by Cindy Lou’s Cookies on the way out.

For a more formal dining experience, choose between the two full-service restaurants, which offer cuisines from different sides of the globe. Chef Katsuya Uechi’s eponymous eatery combines traditional Japanese cuisine with a California twist, serving a wide variety of exquisite sushi as well as entrees like a massive 14-ounce Australian Wagyu ribeye and Thai snapper with ginger chili sauce. On the other side of the hall, visitors will find Casa Dani, the latest creation from Michelin-star chef Dani García. From small tapas plates to family-sized slabs of aged beef and whole Spanish turbot, Casa Dani brings Spain to Midtown with a comprehensive menu that spans the Iberian Peninsula.

Whether you’re a gourmand on the hunt for the latest and greatest dish or just looking to explore some new flavors, Citizens New York is the perfect place to grab dinner with friends and family. Best of all, once you’ve eaten your fill and picked up some tasty to-go treats for a midnight snack, your spacious 555TEN rental is less than 10 minutes away!

Cooling Off at 650 Feet

Deep into summer, New Yorkers are on the lookout for ways to cool off while still enjoying a bit of sun. Let’s be honest: Amazing as it is, Midtown Manhattan, with its colossal towers and sweltering sidewalks, is far from what most of us think of when imagining the perfect place to chill out in August. But far above the bustling Midtown streets rests a sparkling oasis, where 555TEN residents can treat themselves to the sunny luxuries afforded by their favorite beachfront resort.

Surrounded by chaise lounges and private cabanas, 555TEN’s rooftop pool is a haven of refreshment in the heart of New York City. Cool off on the hottest days of the year while taking in the sweeping Manhattan, Brooklyn, and New Jersey views afforded by the 650-foot-high observation deck. When the sun sets, the deck becomes a lively club area warmed by a stylish indoor/outdoor fireplace that keeps the party bumping all year long.

And when winter does eventually come, residents will love the indoor lounge beside the outdoor deck, where floor-to-ceiling windows reveal the same vistas visible from the observation deck. If the fire isn’t enough to heat up residents, they’ll surely find something behind the fully equipped bar to help keep them toasty while they relax in the well-appointed lounge.

An Intimate Portrait of Jean-Michel Basquiat

For summer 2022, renowned architect David Adjaye has transformed the ground floor of the iconic Starrett-Lehigh Building into a biographical exhibition celebrating one of New York’s most notable modern artists. “King Pleasure” takes visitors on an immersive journey through the life and art of Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose work captured the complex intersection of art, culture, and politics as experienced by Black Americans as the 20th century drew to a close. Keep reading to learn more about Basquiat’s life and work and to get information on this unique exhibition, which is located just minutes from the Midtown rentals at 555TEN.

Jean-Michel Basquiat made a huge impact on the art world during his tragically brief career. He was raised in Brooklyn by his Puerto Rican mother and Haitian father, who encouraged their precocious son to learn multiple languages and express himself in myriad ways. By the time Basquiat was in high school, he had begun to develop his unique artistic style, which combined street culture influences like graffiti and rap with classical and literary forms.

Basquiat’s paintings soon caught the attention of art dealers in New York and Italy, and he became a part of a hip set of New York creatives, which included artist Andy Warhol, filmmaker Vincent Gallo, and musician Debbie Harry. The artist’s fame only increased after his untimely death at age 27, with one of his paintings, “Untitled,” selling for more than $100 million in 2017.

“King Pleasure” seeks to create an intimate portrait of this complicated artist by displaying more than 200 never-before-seen and rarely displayed works. The exhibit includes personal objects as well as rare paintings and drawings, all curated by the Basquiat family to tell the artist’s life story as only they know it. Overseen by David Adjaye, “King Pleasure” features distinct, immersive spaces that bring visitors into Basquiat’s world, giving them a peek behind the scenes at the artist’s influences — both personal and political.

Residents of the luxury rentals at 555TEN need only head west toward the Hudson River to reach the Starrett-Lehigh Building and experience “King Pleasure.” The exhibition’s website recommends reserving tickets ahead of time, which guarantees your ability to get in and (with the purchase of tickets at a special rate) allows you and your group to skip the line. Secure your tickets today.

And, if you’re looking for a home base from which to explore more great art and cultural landmarks, check out the availability at 555TEN, and find the perfect rental for your family.

Your Own Backyard at Hudson Yards

Living at 555TEN means never being far from the action. Hudson Yards, one of the
city’s most successful shopping and entertainment developments, is just 10 minutes
south of these Midtown luxury rentals, putting world-class stores right in the residents’
backyard. Best of all, Hudson Yards transforms into an outdoor entertainment space
during the summer — Backyard at Hudson Yards — complete with free concerts, film
and sports screenings, and a rotating lineup of food and activities. Keep reading for a
rundown of everything that’s happening at Hudson Yards this summer!

Home to the iconic sculpture known as the Vessel, Hudson Yards combines a traditional
shopping mall with an arts center and public square. The eye-catching Shed theater
features a dynamic polymer roof that retracts to turn the venue into an outdoor
performance space, while Edge is the city’s highest outdoor observation deck. And at
The Shops at Hudson Yards, you’ll find name-brand retailers and high-end boutiques
designed to create a comprehensive shopping experience.

This summer, Hudson Yards teams up with Wells Fargo to host a series of free concerts
to celebrate the city’s vibrant musical culture. On July 20, synthpop sensation Daya will
take to the Backyard at Hudson Yards stage to energize the crowd with her beat-heavy
tunes. One week later, New York’s own indie ensemble MICHELLE will play a set of
their heartfelt music in a show that’s sure to win them a new cohort of fans. All the while,
concertgoers will be able to enjoy food from a selection of food and drink vendors,
anchored by Hudson Yards’ own Jibs seafood restaurant.

For New Yorkers with a mind for sport, the Backyard is home to a massive 30-foot
screen dubbed, appropriately, The Big Screen, on which visitors will find every type of
sporting event imaginable, from the Grand Slam tennis tournaments to the MLB All-Star
Game and more. If you prefer working up a sweat to watching athletes doing that, head
to the Backyard for one of the Power Hour SoulCycle classes. Come fall, the Backyard
will open up for cinephiles with its Movie Nights, with the first screening taking place on
Sept. 15.

There’s truly something for everyone at the Backyard at Hudson Yards this summer and
fall. For more info, head to the Hudson Yards Events Page. And if you’re in the market

area of New York, reach out to the 555TEN team today!
