A Day in the Life of a 555TEN Resident

June 2023

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.
