New York’s Luxury Real Estate Is Going to the Dogs

The Extell-developed rentals at 555TEN in Midtown have something for every resident—including the four-legged ones. The luxury tower is home to a covered, climate-controlled dog run on the building’s 12th floor, meaning that Fido can always get plenty of exercise, no matter how brutal the weather outside. The pet-friendly building, which already has a number of animal Instagram influencers among its ranks, also offers walking and pet-sitting services from Throw Me a Bone, as well as “Yappy Hours” for residents and their furry friends.

Four Developments Every Pet Owner Will Love

Getting your dog plenty of exercise and socialization doesn’t have to mean yet another trip to the dog park—if you live in one of the Midtown rentals at 555TEN, that is. The Extell-developed luxury rentals offer the city’s most expansive set of pet-friendly amenities, including a covered dog run where pups can socialize while their owners do the same. The building is also home to Throw Me A Bone’s pet-specific amenities, including skilled handlers who can feed, walk, and play with residents’ furry friends when they need an extra set of hands on deck.

Autumn Event Roundup

Summer may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean the city has slowed down. In fact,
as the crisp days of fall settle in, there’s a special energy buzzing around the Midtown West
apartments at 555TEN. Living in one of the city’s most bustling neighborhoods means you
can always find something happening nearby. And this time of year, navigating the sheer
volume of local events can be daunting. But don’t fret, we are here to help. Here are some of
the events we’re looking forward to as the leaves begin to change.

MODA
It’s no secret that New Yorkers have great style. Fall in the city is an exciting time for
fashionistas, many of whom will be flocking to MODA, one of the world’s premier fashion
trade shows. Bringing designers and retailers together, MODA is a high-end trade show put
on by UBM Fashion that “translates high-end women’s fashion for your customer’s everyday
life.” Besides providing a platform for designers to show their work, MODA also offers a
selection of seminars on relevant topics and issues for fashion industry insiders, such as
sustainability and the power that social media influencers wield on the market. The show
runs from Sept. 15 to 17 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center — just a short walk from
the 555TEN luxury rentals.

FAME
If MODA interests you, you might also want to check out FAME. Another highly
anticipated UBM Fashion trade show, the event is aimed at a slightly younger demographic
than MODA. Where MODA presents timeless fashion, FAME is on-trend, showcasing of-
the-moment labels like Elan, which makes high-end, travel-ready clothing for women who
have “mastered the balance between comfort and making a statement.” Think relaxed fits,
chunky sweaters, and maxi dresses that billow in the wind; basically, pieces that are
functional enough to travel in, but still look chic once you arrive. This trade show runs
alongside MODA from Sept. 15 to 17 at the Javits Center.

Anthos Day New York
Let’s switch gears from fashion to technology. If you’ve been on the lookout for ways to
take your business to the next level, consider attending Google’s Anthos Day. At this event,
industry leaders will provide a day of educational talks on using Anthos, a technology that,
according to Google, “lets you build and manage modern hybrid applications, accelerating
your application development and enabling your business with transformational technologies
like service mesh, containers, and microservices.” If that sounds like something you could
use, check out the event on Sept. 16 at Center415.

Bard in the Park
The autumn chill is just around the corner, but there are still a few warm days left for some
satisfying outdoor fun, particularly in the form of a theatrical performance. On Sept. 13 at 7
p.m., Hudson River Park’s Bard in the Park has one final performance on tap, and it’s a
good one: Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Song.” A Shakespeare play is almost always
stirring, but add the unique open-air setting at Clinton Cove, and you really have something special. You may need to bring a sweater, sure, but attending one last outdoor performance
is an ideal way to mark the end of summer.

Wining and Dining: The 555TEN Way

Recently, residents at 555TEN enjoyed a spread of delectable hors d’oeuvres and tantalizing rosé wines in the sky-high residents’ lounge as part of the building’s Rosé Hour event. Parcelle Wine, a local purveyor of fine vino, provided the bottles, which included offerings from California, France, and Italy, all 2018 vintage, while 555TEN provided the gorgeous setting — the spacious 56th floor lounge that looks out at the Midtown skyline.

Residents of these Midtown West apartments, glasses in hand, took in the spectacular views from inside or from the adjacent private deck, and met or caught up with their neighbors. The wines ⁠— Lorenza Rosé from California, Moulin de Gassac “Guilhem” Rosé from France, and Mount Herman Rosé from Italy — were paired with tasty bites, including soft and hard cheeses, fresh fruit, guacamole and chips, pretzels (chocolate-dipped and plain), breads, and even a bowl of miniature cinnamon rolls.

The location, the 56th floor lounge at 555TEN, is a common area adjacent to the open-air deck, which features an outdoor pool and a combined indoor/outdoor fireplace. While no logs were burning during the Rosé Hour, residents took advantage of the warm weather and strolled around the deck with their glasses and plates, taking in intimate views of the nearby towers, including those at Hudson Yards.

Parcelle Wine, which provided the event’s selection of rosés, is located just around the corner from 555TEN and features a rotating selection, refreshed monthly, of the finest wines. Parcelle Wine is the first retail project from the folks behind the popular Manhattan restaurant Charlie Bird, and their team seeks to bring the restaurant’s high level of curated quality to the new storefront. If the wines at 555TEN’s Rosé Hour were any indication, residents are fortunate to live so close to the shop.

As the event wound down, residents returned to their Midtown West apartments elsewhere in the building. Homes at 555TEN range in size from lofts to three bedrooms and feature high-end finishes in the resident’s choice of color scheme. And conveniences abound, including in-unit washer/dryers, and high-tech Urmet MAX intercoms with 7-inch touchscreens that connect to the building’s front door and lobby.

With luxury interiors, a suite of high-end amenities, a fantastic location near Hudson Yards, and events like Rosé Hour to bring all of the residents together, 555TEN is the most exciting place to live in Manhattan. But don’t take our word for it. Head over to the 555TEN website to begin your journey today.

A Self-Care Spa Day in Midtown West

New York has been called “The Big Apple,” “Empire City,” and “The Capital of the World.” There are a host of beloved nicknames for NYC, but perhaps the most apt moniker is “The City That Never Sleeps.” For better or worse, New Yorkers are notorious for fast-paced living. Long work hours and never-ending social engagements can leave scant time for rest and relaxation. Fortunately for residents of the 555TEN luxury rentals, taking a break is as easy as booking an appointment at one of the many top-notch day spas near these Midtown West apartments. Here’s to making time for self-care.

Luxe Den Salon & Spa | 519 Eighth Avenue

Luxe Den Salon & Spa bills itself as “an oasis of tranquility in the heart of New York City,” and they’re not speaking figuratively. The spa includes a light-filled Himalayan Salt Jacuzzi and a Eucalyptus Steam Room where you can soak and let the stress melt away.

Does your best friend desperately need a massage? Or does someone in your family deserve to be treated to a facial? There are few things as gratifying as gifting something special to the people you love. So give them (and yourself, too) an uplifting and energizing experience by booking a spa party. Customized to suit individual needs, the spa party format allows everyone in your group to choose the services they want. Whether you meet up for a quick hour-long recharge or spend an entire day luxuriating, chances are, you won’t regret time spent relaxing and rejuvenating with the ones closest to you.

That said, sometimes it’s nice to escape your social life and go it alone. For the ultimate in self-care, go all out and try the Royal Facial. Harnessing the detoxifying power of active oxygen, the exfoliating properties of fruit acids, and the moisturizing qualities of hyaluronic acid, this facial promises to “help the skin attain and maintain a youthful luminous radiance.” Your friends will wonder why you’re suddenly glowing.

Grand Central Bodywork | 135 West 29th Street, Suite 403

Is there anything as indulgent and restorative as a massage? If there is, we haven’t heard of it. However, with the multitude of methods and schools of massage available in the city, it can be difficult to find the one that is best for your needs. At Grand Central Bodywork, the staff is trained in a wide range of massage services, meaning they can advise you on which type is right for you. If you’re still unsure, try them all! Both the deep-tissue massage and Swedish massage are effective at relieving neck, shoulder, arm, and leg pain, though they employ different methods. The Thai Yoga Massage combines massage and stretching, and the Hot Stone Massage Combination encourages blood flow by combining deep-tissue methods with the use of smooth, hot stones. Athletes will benefit from the Sports Massage, which is aimed at addressing issues that arise from whatever your sport of choice may be.

Sparsely decorated and flickering with candlelight, the atmosphere is as simple as it is serene. You’re sure to leave feeling lighter, calmer, and ready to face the day, however fast-paced it may be.

Stargazing at the High Line

It’s a myth that the city lights prevent stargazing in our grand metropolis. Yes, we have a bright night sky, but one only needs to learn how to look past it, and know the best places for doing so. While you could head uptown to use the telescope at the Adler Planetarium, an equally splendid experience awaits much nearer to the Midtown West apartments at 555TEN. Every Tuesday, celestial enthusiasts and citizen scientists gather on the High Line for a night of fun and learning under the stars. Come out to take a peek at the cosmos through high-powered telescopes, or enjoy a romantic nighttime stroll along the park’s path. Or do both. Inspiration awaits you. You just have to take the time to wander out — and to look up.

From the dawn of humankind, we have turned to the sky in celebration of the heavens above. Inquisitive minds sought knowledge of all kinds from the movement of the various objects they observed. Early people saw gods and later developed beliefs that one’s actions were under the sway of celestial patterns and cycles. Later, scientists would discover immutable laws governing our universe and came to the conclusion that newly defined rules of physics and celestial mechanics were at play in the change of seasons and the movements of the tides. And just 50 years ago this past July, we took our first steps on the surface of our own nearby moon. In 50 more years, who knows what discoveries we will make…

That sense of wonder and discovery is within your reach on the High Line each Tuesday at dusk. From April through October, you can come to the High Line where the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York will be on hand to guide you in your exploration of our galaxy. The evening is free and requires no RSVP. Simply show up when the sun goes down and prepare to see true wonders: Saturn’s rings, the stormy eye of Jupiter, or even an assortment of comets making their way through our solar system on their travels through distant space. In the process, you’ll discover facts about space and its effects on our own terrestrial existence. You’ll also learn how to spot common constellations in the night sky, find planets and learn the best times to see them with the naked eye, and get tips on how to make the most of your own stargazing — with or without a telescope. Come early or late, for what’s visible can change depending upon the time of evening and weather conditions.

Use the rest of your night to enjoy the many pleasures of the High Line. Bring along someone special, and look skyward together, picking out celestial bodies that you were taught to spot earlier in the night. If clouds block the view, the High Line and its gardens are more than just a consolation: They are their own prize. Flowers and various plants bloom and grow in orchestrated plots throughout the season, offering a glimpse of flora native to Manhattan and the region. Or, you may stumble upon a summer or fall festival, a talk, or other events focused on music, the written word, or visual art. The High Line is more than a park, and no matter when or how you explore it, there’s always something new to see and discover.

With close proximity to the 555TEN luxury rentals, the High Line is a wondrous vantage point from which to take in the night sky. Mark your calendar for a few Tuesday evenings this summer and fall, and come at dusk to renew your fascination with the worlds beyond our own. And come prepared to enjoy the rest of the High Line as you meander among the gardens and installations of one of NYC’s most remarkable public spaces.

A Deep Dive: Pools in NYC condos and rentals making the biggest splash

Beating the heat this summer is easy for those lucky enough to call one of the Midtown Manhattan apartments for rent at 555TEN home. The Extell-developed tower is home to a long list of amenities, including a stylish residents’ lounge and state-of-the-art fitness center, but its most impressive attribute is its rooftop pool, which provides stunning views of the Hudson River and the Manhattan surroundings. Residents can even take a dip after summer’s come and gone—the building is home to an indoor saltwater lap pool, too.

Neighborhood Treats at the Hudson Yards Farmers Market

We all go to the farmers market with the best intentions — namely, to buy plenty of fresh, local vegetables for making healthy, home-cooked meals — but sometimes, we leave with tote bags full of baked pastries, and end up spooning down some freshly made ice cream. Whatever your go-to farmers market treat is, foodies who live at the 555TEN luxury rentals will find something to love at the Hudson Yards Farmers Market. Stock up on summer staples like juicy tomatoes and dark, leafy greens, or indulge in a handcrafted treat. Either way, you’re turning what some consider a tedious chore — grocery shopping — into a chance to spend time outside, run into friends, taste local treats, and support local farmers and artisans. Here are some of our favorite vendors to check out at the Hudson Yards Farmers Market on 34th Street and Hudson Boulevard East. The market is open every Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. until November 21.

Nancy’s of Woodstock Artisanal Creamery

When it comes to summer treats, the siren song of Nancy’s of Woodstock Artisanal Creamery is nearly impossible to ignore. Straight out of the Catskill Mountains, Nancy’s of Woodstock uses only ingredients grown or sourced from the New York mountain range — including the milk — and leaves out additives, such as gluten, dyes, and preservatives. The result is a rich homemade ice cream that harkens back to an earlier time, when most foods were made by hand at home rather than produced in a factory. So, the foundation is solid, but what about the flavors? Nancy’s offers varieties that range from the “familiar flavors of your childhood to modern, whimsical, even exotic new tastes.” We’re looking at you, Blackberry Basil. There’s even a handful of vegan options that make use of coconut cream, so even the milk-averse can find something to love.

Abandoned Hard Cider

Have you ever visited an apple orchard? If so, you probably saw stately rows of neatly pruned trees, bursting with pale blossoms in the spring or succulent red apples in the summer. But not all apples come from such beautifully kept farms, lovely as they may be. The minds behind Abandoned Hard Cider know this, and they’ve made a business of seeking out feral apple trees, both in the wild and in overgrown orchards that have been long forgotten. It started when owner Martin Bernstein tasted fruit from the derelict apple trees that sprawled across his 100-acre Catskills farm and discovered unique, surprising flavors. Bernstein teamed up with Eric Childs, known as “The Fermentation Guy,” to use both the apples on his farm and other rare strains found in feral apple trees across the state. As a result, the two have handcrafted a selection of distinctive ciders, perfect to take home and sip in your Midtown West apartments.

Horman’s Best Pickles

In the heat of summer, it’s difficult to deny the appeal of the cold crunch of a fresh pickle. But not all pickles are on the same level. Pickles that are processed in a massive factory aren’t likely to have the flavor or texture of Horman’s Best Pickles. At the helm of the operation is Nick Horman, a self-described “third-generation pickle guy.” What sets his pickles apart from the rest? The process, of course. Horman uses cucumber growers that he trusts, monitoring the process from seed to harvest. He’s also inflexible when it comes to the temperature of his pickles, keeping each cucumber cold from the moment it’s picked to the moment the jar is sealed, unlike factory-made pickles that are heated during processing. This cold pickling process creates a pickle that is fresh and vibrant, perfect for adding to your picnic sandwich or dunking in a Bloody Mary. Oh, did we mention? Horman makes his own Bloody Mary mix, too. Your brunches are covered.

Splash cash: New York renters pay top dollar for access to pricey rooftop pools

The most-coveted amenities in luxury hotels are now becoming fixtures in high-end Manhattan real estate. The luxury Midtown rentals at 555TEN, for example, are topped by a spacious rooftop pool on the building’s 56th story, one of numerous amenities the Extell-developed building offers. The tower’s outdoor pool is also surrounded by a cabana-dotted deck, perfect for lounging when the weather heats up, as it offers sweeping views of the Hudson River and Midtown.
