Getting Around NYC From 555TEN

June 2022

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.
