A Day in the Life at 555TEN

Not only is 555TEN located in one of the best neighborhoods in Manhattan, this collection of Midtown luxury rentals is a community in and of itself. A day in the life at 555TEN is an elegant interrelationship between the city and a home that provides so much of what you need that it opens your life to possibilities both in and out of the building. It’s a way of living that connects you to neighbors in innovative ways and gives you a strong sense of belonging.

In a city where hectic schedules often make socializing something you have to plan in advance, the luxury apartments for rent at 555TEN offer you a world of amenities where chance meetings with neighbors can happen at any hour of the day, opening you to the conversations that often become the most organic and the most meaningful. One of 555TEN’s best spots to connect is the rooftop pool and lounge — a place that provides a perfect backdrop for a workout, a small gathering, or a relaxed hour to sunbathe while reading the paper or a new novel.

The fitness center takes the ancient Roman approach to wellness by creating a setting where staying in shape is a luxurious experience that is as social as you want it to be. It’s a place to take a class, organize a group of yogis to get your prana going, do laps in the saltwater pool, ride Peloton bikes, or create a personalized fitness program on state-of-the-art equipment that “remembers” you.

For a perfect evening of entertainment, you can take on Midtown West and its endless possibilities for adventure. Or, you can find the fun at home at 555PLAY, where you can meet friends at the bowling alley and arcade. But why not have some of both? Head to an art opening in Chelsea, see a Broadway play, or eat dinner out in Hell’s Kitchen, a neighborhood Ryan Sutton of Eater calls “one of the city’s best homegrown restaurant communities.” Feast on flame-grilled skewers at Torishin, the place Sutton calls “the city’s best and most ambitious yakitori joint.” Make a night of it with drinks afterward at Bar Centrale, where Broadway goes to celebrate. Finish off the night at 555TEN’s all-season rooftop club and bar with the freedom of knowing you’re already home.

When you’re ready for bed, the beauty of the skyline views as seen from your floor-to-ceiling windows offers the peacefulness of life high above the city — with the added bonus of double panes specifically designed to keep your space calm and quiet. The high-quality materials in your bathroom, like the Porcelanosa tiling and the fixtures from Waterworks, will turn an end-of-day shower into the centering experience that is found in so many aspects of life at 555TEN.

Shopping at Hudson Yards

Shopping should always be a pleasure—it’s merely a question of finding the right place to do it. Hudson Yards New York in Midtown West is a paradise of high-end stores: designer clothing boutiques, heaven-scented perfume shops from internationally renowned names, purveyors of fine jewelry. Even better, it’s all a short walk from the luxury apartments for rent at 555TEN. Fetch your credit card, and let’s get started.

Elegant Outfits

Summertime is a wonderful excuse to embellish your wardrobe, and at Hudson Yards, you’re utterly spoilt for choice. Find in-vogue puff-sleeved blouses and Wilfred daiquiri dresses at Aritzia. Pick up a linen blazer from Dunhill—ideal for evenings dining alfresco in NYC. Make the most of 555TEN’s fitness center by kitting yourself out in stylish yoga wear from lululemon. Discover luxury swimwear from Vilebrequin, such as the 1975 Rosaces one-piece swimsuit—guaranteed to make a splash at 555TEN’s skytop pool.

Sparkling Accoutrements

Adding boutique bling to your outfits is a must. Pore over diamond-encrusted love bracelets from Cartier or luxe gold pendant necklaces from MARLI New York. A pair of earrings from Tiffany and Co. will make you feel a million dollars; their collection of Jewel Box drop earrings is particularly exquisite. Need a new bag for your collection? Browse the cute tabby shoulder bags available from Coach. Stay safe in the sun with a new pair of Ray-Ban shades. And tell the time in style, courtesy of an elegant Nautilus watch from Geneva’s finest, Patek Philippe.

Heavenly Aromas

Hudson Yards doesn’t disappoint with its aromatic options; discover summery fragrances like Clémentine California from Atelier Cologne. Treat yourself to an iconic bottle of Flower by Kenzo eau de parfum from the brand’s own Hudson Yards boutique. Replenish your bathroom with essential oils and luscious creams from The Body Shop. Dive into the exquisite range of colognes from Jo Malone London—and while you’re there, purchase a deliciously fragrant candle for your apartment.

The Right Embellishments

Now you look and smell divine; it’s time to cast your attention to your no-fee rental at 555TEN. Buy a show-stopping piece of contemporary art to hang in your living space or bedroom, courtesy of Avant Gallery. Working from home more these days? Explore the elegantly ergonomic chairs and desks from Herman Miller. Then call in at MUJI to pick up organic cotton waffle towels for the bathroom and porcelain donburi bowls for noodle nights in your rental’s EXTELL Choice kitchen.

Biking in the City

Summer is the best time for taking the bicycle out of storage and exploring the city. Residents of the 555TEN luxury rentals can pedal to stay fit year-round in the luxury fitness studios equipped with state-of-the-art Peloton bicycles. But the fully equipped indoor bike service station and storage area add an extra incentive for taking up some seasonal (or year-round) cycling and getting onto some of the city’s most scenic bike paths.

555TEN is conveniently located near two of New York City’s most treasured biking destinations: Central Park and the Hudson River Greenway. Central Park is, of course, New York’s premier green space, with three designated bike loops that stretch 6.1 miles, 5.2 miles, and 1.7 miles—and are closed to cars on the weekends for added comfort for bicycles and pedestrians alike. A day of biking in the park can easily incorporate a well-deserved moment of rest with a picnic in the park’s rolling green areas, stocked with provisions from eateries near 555TEN.

For a longer stretch extending from Battery City Park and north to the George Washington Bridge, the Hudson River Greenway offers safe, designated cycling paths with sweeping, unobstructed views of the Hudson River and cityscapes beyond. Cyclists can stop along the way to enjoy a view of the USS Intrepid or enjoy the views from benches and resting spots throughout the path.

The beginning of an epic borough-crossing biking adventure to City Island awaits just a few blocks south of 555TEN at Pier 84 near the Intrepid Museum. The paved bike path near 43rd Street leads north to the George Washington Bridge and beyond the bridge to Inwood Hill Park. Cyclists can then cross the Harlem River into the Bronx along Pelham Parkway and over a series of charming, small bridges to City Island in the Long Island Sound. This fishing village is lined with antique shops and dozens of restaurants and pubs, perfect for enjoying a pint or the catch of the day after a long ride through the city.

Closer to home, residents of 555TEN can take advantage of New York City’s new Open Streets program, which allows cyclists and pedestrians safe and open access to city streets with limited or no incoming traffic. After a ride through the neighborhood, stop for a scoop or a cone of ice cream as a reward for braving a warm summer’s day outdoors—then enjoy the summer breeze as you zip back home.

And, if you’re not yet a lucky resident of 555TEN, finding your new bicycle-friendly lifestyle in Midtown West is as simple as contacting our leasing team today.

Summer on the High Line

Summer has arrived in New York City, bringing plenty of sunshine and a welcome opportunity for some much-needed leisure. Summer is also the best season of the year for exploring, or simply rekindling an appreciation for, the city’s cultural institutions, parks, restaurants, and the sights and sounds that make New York the greatest city on Earth. Residents of the 555TEN luxury rentals are just a few blocks away from one of New York City’s most famed and beloved destinations — the High Line. A walk through this 1.45-mile-long elevated park, which stretches from Gansevoort Street to 34th Street along the West Side of Manhattan, promises scenic viewing spots, newly commissioned art installations, and glimpses of New York’s history.

Groundbreaking on the High Line started in 2006, but its first visitors were welcomed in 2009. The park continued to expand farther north, with the Rail Yards section, which runs between West 30th to 34th Streets, completed for visitors in 2014. But the High Line’s origin story stretches back to the 19th century — when freight trains still operated at street level, causing perilous conditions for pedestrians. Years of improvement projects aimed at making the area safer led to the construction of an elevated rail line. The “West Side Elevated Line,” as it was originally known, debuted in the 1930s and carried goods to factories like Nabisco’s, better known today as the building that houses the ever-popular Chelsea Market.

With the advent of trucking, the High Line fell into disuse, and by the 1980s, it was headed for demolition. In fact, former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani even signed a demolition order in 1999. Enter the Friends of the High Line. Inspired by the natural beauty of the secret garden of wild plants that had sprung up there, the group was founded to advocate for the repurposing of the space for public use. The organization commissioned a competition for ideas to reimagine the old rail line. With community support and planning, the High Line was born — and has since become one of the city’s most popular sites and an exemplar of landscape architecture the world over.

While proposals to extend the High Line north to Hudson River Park have already been announced, 555TEN residents can easily make the short stroll to the 34th Street entrance. From there, they can enjoy a walk through the Interim Walkway, which offers panoramic city and Hudson River views. At 30th Street, the Pershing Square Beams pay homage to the High Line’s industrial past with preserved steel beams and girders, which have been repurposed as a safe area for play and exploration. Also found at 30th Street is the Spur — an open-air space that houses the High Line Plinth, which is dedicated to large-scale public artworks. Currently on view is “Untitled (drone)” by Sam Durant — an abstract fiberglass sculpture in the form of a drone aircraft, which Durant fashioned to bring visibility to usually invisible drone warfare and surveillance.

Farther south on 26th Street is a dedicated viewing spot, as well as stretches of trees and other greenery along the Philip A. and Lisa Maria Falcone Flyover. Still farther down, you’ll find the lush Chelsea Thicket between 21st and 22nd Streets. For a moment of rest during your visit, engage in a bit of people watching on the 23rd Street Lawn and Seating Steps or the 10th Avenue Square & Overlook. Cool off with the water feature and sundeck between 14th and 15th Streets, or, in the evening, pause at the partially enclosed 14th Street Passage, which offers a curated rotation of art videos and other programming.

Residents of 555TEN can make the most of the High Line all summer long. And why not? This treasured piece of New York history is right in their own backyard.

Outdoor Amenities at 555TEN

As the weather warms up in NYC, New Yorkers want to get outside and seize the summer days with gusto. After a year of being indoors, this summer is set to be one when everyone appreciates the fresh air more than ever. Think: outdoor dining at fabulous restaurants, meeting up with friends at a park, and long walks through the city. Residents of 555TEN luxury rentals have easy access to almost every al fresco activity Manhattan affords. These no-fee NYC rentals are just a five-minute stroll from the High Line, an even quicker walk to Hudson Yards, and two blocks away from the Hudson River. But you don’t need to look any further than home to get a healthy dose of outdoor fun — 555TEN has plenty of that for you.

Get the sunscreen ready!

The outdoor amenities at 555TEN are as exquisite as each of the homes inside. You could pass a sizzling summer day in the temperature-controlled splendor of your home, enjoying the striking views and taking advantage of every modern convenience one could ever ask for. Then again, you could also throw on your bathing suit, grab a towel, and take the elevator up to the rooftop pool. While rooftops abound in this vertical city, none are as sleek and stylish as this one 56 stories above Midtown West.

Imagine spending a day with family and friends luxuriating in a cabana or reclining on a chaise lounge in between soothing soaks in the pool. Float all of your cares away 650 feet in the air. As the sun begins to set, take in jaw-dropping vistas as you gaze toward the south and the Hudson River. Who needs to get tickets to the nearby Edge observation deck when this rooftop gives you views that are just as stunning? Watching the sunset from this unobstructed vantage point is nothing short of breathtaking — and it’s something you can see on any day. When night falls, head to the rooftop club for a drink at the bar, and gather around the indoor/outdoor fireplace.

At 555TEN, it’s not just people who get to enjoy world-class outdoor amenities: Dogs have their own outdoor area to play and get some exercise. No more dragging your pup to the dog park blocks away in inclement weather. Thanks to 555TEN’s covered outdoor dog park, both you and your furry best friend can get in some playtime whenever the mood strikes.

Enjoy all that New York City has to offer — both indoors and out — from these well-appointed, customizable, and amenity-filled homes. Want to see more of what 555TEN has to offer? Contact us today and make an appointment for viewing.

Summer on the Waterfront: Hudson River Park

Hudson River Park runs an impressive four miles along the western shoreline of Manhattan — and right past the luxury rentals at 555TEN. As NYC reopens for summer, make the most of this uniquely repurposed industrial waterfront, with its charming lawns, restaurants, and community activities, that sits on the doorstep of 555TEN’s Midtown West apartments.

Lazing on Lawns

Sometimes all a sunny afternoon calls for is a patch of lush, green grass for relaxing. Hudson River Park has plenty. Recline with a good novel at Linda’s Lawn, or top up your tan on nearby Locomotive Lawn. Pier 96 is home to Clinton Cove — walkable from 555TEN’s no-fee rentals, and it’s the perfect spot for picnicking. Walk around a bit and you’ll discover some of the park’s many public artworks. Particularly worth seeking out is Malcolm Cochran’s “Private Passage.” It’s a sculpture of an oversized wine bottle with an interior that mirrors a stateroom from the Queen Mary ocean liner.

Take to the Water (Or Stay on Dry Land)

You needn’t be a seasoned sailor to take to the Hudson River. Wander down to the waterfront from 555TEN to find Manhattan Kayak, offering kayak and paddleboard lessons and experiences — there’s even an after-dark excursion. Next door, on Pier 83, is Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises. Be a tourist for a change, and drink in Manhattan skyline views by day, or watch the city twinkle after dark on the Harbor Lights Cruise. Prefer to remain on dry land? Join the scores of joggers who use the park’s pathways for their daily routine, or hire a bike from Pier 84, and take off along the Hudson River Greenway.

Waterfront Drinking and Dining

On balmy evenings, nothing rivals refined cocktails followed by a meal under the stars. Try The Press Lounge for stunning views over the Hudson River, paired with summery sips, including pink negronis and spiked lemonades. Or, gorge on freshly caught seafood and prosecco aboard the North River Lobster Company‘s floating restaurant. Both are within comfortable walking distance of the luxury rentals at 555TEN.

Be a Volunteer

Want to give something back to this incredible park? Sign up to be a member of the HRPK Green Team. Twice-monthly sessions take place throughout the summer, inviting you to slip on your gardening gloves, and dig into planting, weeding, pruning, mulching, and various other horticultural activities. Not only is it a great way to keep the park looking fine and dandy, it’s another wonderful way to bask in the beauty of the waterfront — not to mention meet fellow New Yorkers.

The Public Square and Gardens at Hudson Yards

Spring is in the air, and New Yorkers are ready to get back outside and explore a reopening and reinvigorated city. One of the most beloved and quintessentially “New York” pastimes might be strolling through Central Park and admiring storied landmarks and architectural marvels. Residents of 555TEN’s Midtown rentals are close to some of New York’s most famed attractions, including the city’s latest destination and engineering masterpiece: the Public Square and Gardens at Hudson Yards.

Just a few blocks south of 555TEN and at the center of Hudson Yards, the square features parks, gardens, and space for taking in some fresh air in the shade or enjoying a morning paper and coffee from the shops and restaurants nearby. But the Public Square and Gardens is a bona fide 21st-century destination. In addition to fast Wi-Fi throughout, the square was built atop a working railyard and deploys state-of-the-art horticultural technology to deliver nutrients, irrigate and drain, and allow root growth to its thicket of trees and tens of thousands of diverse plants across five acres. Wildflowers throughout the park offer a colorful tableau of spring’s brightest—and also attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators to maintain plant life across seasons.

Visitors can enjoy the park year-round—with plants and greenery supported with temperature regulation control. As part of a sophisticated ventilation system, tubing embedded within the platform beneath the tree roots circulates cooling liquids to combat the heat emanating from the train yard below, while the roots of the large trees throughout the park are supported with soil beds to allow them to grow and stay healthy and aerated. The 60,000-gallon stormwater storage tanks irrigate the park’s greenery while limiting the greenhouse output of pumping extra water throughout—a commitment to providing a sustainable, all-seasons destination.

At the center of the Square is the Vessel, designed by Heatherwick Studio. This honeycomb structure is now one of New York’s most recognizable architectural triumphs. But the striking design of the Vessel isn’t meant to be taken in passively. Visitors can explore the interactive design by ascending the structure’s 16 stories through over 150 interconnecting flights of stairs and taking in the view at one of the designated viewing points high above the city.

Though 555TEN residents can enjoy the comforts of home in their exceptional NYC luxury rentals, stepping outside to the Public Square and Gardens at Hudson Yards is a perfect reminder of the best of New York in the spring.

Going Out and Open in Midtown West

There’s no question that the past year has been a time of adjusting, adapting, and getting through hard times. But New York City has been the center of resilience and innovation and has transformed its streets and public spaces to let people walk, bike, dine, and be out and about in the city like never before. Residents of Midtown rentals at 555TEN are ideally located to take advantage of the city’s new Open Streets program and to visit the still-flourishing small businesses, safely socialize with friends and family, and enjoy the warm weather for an afternoon or evening in the neighborhood.

 

The Open Streets program creates both Temporary Limited Local Access and Temporary Full Closures in areas throughout the city during designated hours throughout the week. Limited Local Access limits most through traffic, while Full Closures create open streets and block all vehicle access and parking. Both programs make streets and public spaces easier for pedestrians and cyclists to navigate and allow streets to be used for outdoor dining, retail, or other programming to support the city. 555TEN residents can enjoy limited Local Access and Full Closures on nearby 46th Street or along Broadway from 36th Street to 42nd Street and 47th to 53rd Streets to the north.

 

The program is designed to allow residents a chance to explore the city and get out and rediscover the offerings of their neighborhoods—and beyond—throughout the city’s boroughs. 555TEN residents can rediscover or create a new morning ritual with a stroll through the streets and grab an espresso and a pastry from their local cafe. While the exclusive 555TEN dog run is still in business for four-legged friends to enjoy, a long walk exploring the sights and sounds (and new smells, for your pets) will bring an exciting change of pace. Or it may be time to take the bike and helmet out of storage for a ride through Midtown to the East River or north to Upper Manhattan that will lend a whole new perspective on the city. Residents can also opt to dine out at their favorite local Italian, tapas, or seafood spot nearby or indulge in a Michelin-star meal for a celebratory occasion, then venture over to Broadway to see the landmarks and attractions at the heart of the Theater District.

 

While the city continues to adapt and make its streets more open and traffic-free for everyday enjoyment, residents of 555TEN can take advantage by visiting their beloved neighborhood shops, restaurants, and sights and discovering new favorites as they explore the city anew. And if you don’t live here yet, now is also an excellent time to explore our luxury Midtown Manhattan apartments.

From Yonkers to Hell’s Kitchen: Lured by a luxury building that checks all the boxes

Residents of the Midtown luxury apartments at 555TEN are in awe of the wealth of amenities the building offers at every turn. The doorman-attended building is home to a state-of-the-art gym, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a bowling alley, a rooftop deck, and a covered dog run, perfect for getting those furry friends some convenient exercise. Inside each apartment, residents can enjoy an in-residence washer and dryer, as well as stunning city views. Just steps from the building’s front door, residents also have easy access to the best the city has to offer, from restaurants like Empanada Mama and Totto Ramen to the bright lights of Times Square and the peaceful sanctuary of the High Line.

Learning and Reimagining the City with CUNY Graduate Center

We’re fully embarked on the third decade of the 21st century, and New York City and its people have exciting decisions to make about how we’re going to grow and thrive in an increasingly complex and sophisticated society. Residents of the luxury Midtown rentals at 555TEN will reap many of the benefits of living in our world city/cultural mecca, including the beauty of Hudson River Park to the west and the attractions and delights of the Theater District seemingly everywhere around them. A walk of just over 20 minutes to the east will also bring them to CUNY Graduate Center, one of the academic institutions that help define New York City.

Like many colleges and universities, CUNY Graduate Center has a public programming component. Its Public Events Email List keeps interested New Yorkers apprised of future happenings at the school, and a tax-deductible Community Membership allows them to support and “receive special access” to the programming, which is often free to the public.

The Center’s spring semester 2021 public events are virtual, although many require an RSVP. On April 21st at 4 pm, “What Matters Now? CUNY Teaches Living History” discusses “transformative activism” as a response to health emergencies like COVID-19. Later in the evening (at 7:30 pm), “City of Science” will reveal the ethical dimensions of artificial intelligence.

In May, there will be an exploration of hip hop activism (on May 7th), a dissertation showcase (on May 19th) in which Graduate Center students are challenged to present their scholarship “in language for a general audience,” and a presentation (on May 20th) on Asian American New Yorkers’ contributions to “educational equity and diversity.”

The Graduate Center’s YouTube channel is a resource for live broadcasts and archives of past events like the recent four-part “Rethinking NYC” series, which discussed bias in the city’s criminal justice system, economic “opportunity escalators” to move the city forward, the central role of the city’s “abundant cultural activities and its magnificent public spaces,” and the challenges of leadership as the city prepares for the mayoral election.

In the coming months, CUNY Graduate Center will continue to serve as an anchor and icon in Midtown. Its Italian Renaissance Revival building, located on a stretch of Fifth Avenue, is itself an example of NYC reinvention. For decades, it was the site of B. Altman & Co., one of the most elegant of the Midtown department stores in the 20th century. Evolution is surely a constant in the city, and learning and reimagining your own place in New York City (both metaphorically and physically) will keep you engaged in its transformations. If you want to inhabit a stylish home in a neighborhood with deep history, a vibrant present, and a strong sense of the future, contact us to find out more about the Midtown Manhattan apartments at 555TEN.
