A Day in the Life of a 555TEN Resident

Perched atop the Midtown Manhattan apartments at 555TEN is a swimming pool where taking a dip is like floating along the skyline. It’s the sort of activity New Yorkers would line up for, but at these NYC luxury rentals, it could be an everyday activity. The pool is just one part of an unprecedented amenities package that lets you make the most of staying home, so that you can make the most of a night on the town in Hell’s Kitchen when you’re ready for it.

Imagine evenings after work unwinding by the pool 56 stories up in the sky with the city stretching out far below. Or picture weekends gathering with neighbors or out-of-town guests on the sundeck, where you can use private cabanas or chaise longues, with proximity to the lounge and bar to really make a night of it. With the warmer weather on its way, this is the kind of space you’ll use as an anchor for both relaxation and for socializing in equal measure.

Indoors, the amenities continue, with a saltwater lap pool — ideal for cooler or rainy days — where you can tap into a spa vibe, do a round of laps, or just relax and read a book with the sound of the water lapping at the travertine marble tiles. The rest of the Health and Wellness floor includes studios for group classes as well as personal use, a designated cardio area, and a weight room. Find your personal groove with Peloton bikes or the Nexersys Boxing Exergame.

For the playful side of residents of all ages, 555PLAY includes a bowling alley, a children’s playroom, and an arcade — another great place to gather with friends for some afterwork fun or a full-on celebration when the week is done.

Your days will fall into a different rhythm when so much of what you need is at your fingertips morning and night. These luxurious conveniences will also open time in your schedule to be out and about in the city to experience the aspects of Midtown life that brought you here in the first place, like destination restaurants and on- and off-Broadway plays. For a truly special night out, try the tasting menu at Kochi, a Korean restaurant where the focus is on grilled skewers of things, like Berkshire pork, shrimp, and halibut — all of which will attest to the restaurant’s having earned a Michelin star.

While watching the chefs at Kochi prepare your 12-course meal is a kind of theater in itself, you can follow your meal with a trip to the actual theater, which, in this neighborhood, means top actors in productions people half a world away dream about seeing, like Tom Stoppard’s “Leopoldstadt” or “A Doll’s House,” featuring Jessica Chastain. It’s the kind of perfect night that could happen only in New York, after a day of pampering and relaxation at your home base above it all at 555TEN.

Explore the Drama Book Shop

Residents of the Midtown rentals at 555TEN are accustomed to being squarely in the center of Manhattan’s finest cultural establishments and entertainment venues. From Lincoln Center and, of course, to Broadway, the area around 555TEN is a mecca for all things dramatic and the finest theater productions, new and those with storied, decades-long runs. 555TEN residents are also just a few blocks from another iconic New York institution, which is part of the city’s theater lore: the Drama Book Shop.

For over a century, the Drama Book Shop has been proving its mettle as New York’s finest shop for theatrical works, boasting upwards of 8,000 plays, as well as accolades, including a Tony Award Honor for Excellence in Theatre, which is given in recognition of achievement in theater in categories outside the Award’s traditional categories. Its central location on West 39th Street became home in 2020 when it came under new ownership.

Its new owners include another theater legend, Lin-Manuel Miranda, along with friend and fellow Drama Book Shop patron Thomas Kail, as well Jeffrey Seller and James Nederlander. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s history with the store began long before he took on the mantle of owner. In fact, the beginnings of his career can be traced to December 2001, when Wesleyan University theater troupe Back House Productions, founded by Kail and others, became the store’s resident theater company. In 2002, the group began rehearsals for a new musical in the Arthur Seelen Theatre below the store’s then 40th Street location. That musical, directed by Kail, was none other than Miranda’s In the Heights, which became a Tony Award-winning sensation and a mixing of theater greatness only possible in New York City.

The Drama Book Shop’s current location was designed by Hamilton’s scenic designer, David Korins, and his team. The old-world ambiance, with dark wood shelving and pendant lights, is complemented by a full-service cafe, which adds to the shop’s homey appeal. Today, the Drama Book Shop continues to serve the theater and arts scene and the greater community with a welcoming space for its patrons. 555TEN residents need only walk a few blocks to browse the shelves and check out the offerings over a pastry and coffee, all while steeped in a true piece of the city’s theater past and future.

Take a Walk on the High Line

With sunny days and blue skies ahead for the foreseeable future, it’s time to celebrate all that summer has to offer. Residents of the Midtown rentals at 555TEN are within walking distance of one of New York City’s most beloved destinations—and one of the most idyllic spots for spending a summer afternoon or balmy evening: the High Line. From its proximity to some of the city’s finest art galleries to its summer events calendar, the High Line has something to offer all its visitors throughout the season.

Formerly an elevated freight train rail along Manhattan’s West Side, the High Line stretches just under a mile and a half from Gansevoort Street to 34th Street. Since its debut in 2009, the High Line has attracted millions of visitors every year, thanks to its planted gardens, landscape architecture, trails, play areas, and gathering spaces. Whether for a sun-soaked amble through the park or to check out the public art displayed throughout, the High Line remains one of the city’s most popular draws, not just through the summer season.

In addition to its key attraction—of natural beauty embedded within the broader city landscape—the High Line also offers a sense of community. On Tuesdays, the park is open for evening strolls and an opportunity to do some stargazing. High-powered telescopes are provided between sunset and the park closing, as well as guidance from members of the Amateur Astronomers Association, who can offer some wisdom throughout the process of identifying and reveling in astronomical sightings.

Visitors can make the most of a trip to the High Line by enjoying everything along its path on the West Side. 555TEN residents can peruse the dining options, wine shops, and flower stalls at the Chelsea Market near 15th Street for some shopping, a meal of lobster rolls and oysters, or a taco to enjoy while picnicking in the park. Meanwhile, Chelsea’s storied gallery culture offers residents an opportunity to check out the most cutting-edge works on display in the city—and the world.

Residents of 555TEN’s Midtown rentals can conveniently explore the city’s culture and green spaces all summer long. Contact our team to learn more about the benefits of living close to many of New York’s finest parks.
