A Coffee Lover’s Paradise in Midtown Manhattan

New Yorkers are fueled by coffee. New Yorkers drink seven times more of the stuff than average for Americans, and the city has more coffeehouses per capita than anywhere else in the country. Takeout coffee cups are even an important accessory in New York fashion, from clear plastic domes with iced lattes inside to the iconic blue and white Greek coffee cup full of hot java. New Yorkers pay close attention to the coffee shops near their building, and the many high-quality coffeehouses around 555TEN make living in these Midtown rentals a treat for connoisseurs.

555TEN residents will want to pick up their morning cup at The Jolly Goat, which has been brewing exquisite espresso beverages since 2014. Using beans roasted by their sister company, Urban Rooster Coffee, The Jolly Goat serves the full range of drip and espresso drinks as well as specialty versions like Turmeric or Beetroot Wellness Lattes, which combine the classic flavors of a latte with root powders that boost vital functions. The Jolly Goat also serves tea and seasonal beverages like hot apple cider, keeping customers coming back for more all year.

For a lunchtime treat and refuel on caffeine, 555TEN residents can head to Bibble and Sip, the cute coffeehouse bringing French baking and Asian flavors together to create a line of unique and mouthwatering pastries, backed up by a line of specialty lattes. Creations like the Earl Grey Vanilla Cream Puff and the dessert cakes inspired by Japanese kawaii-style confections are as eye-catching as they are delicious, while drinks like the Matcha Jasmine Latte and Iced Black Coffee Float are sure to tempt even the most diehard coffee purists. Not to worry, though; Bibble and Sip’s menu also features delicious standard drinks like Americanos and Cortados.

When the time comes for that mid-afternoon pick-me-up, 555TEN residents will love swinging by Bird & Branch, the avian-themed coffeehouse serving flavorful coffee concoctions and delicious baked goods. Seasonal offerings like the Mockingbird (a latte made with kabocha and fresh cinnamon) live alongside the full range of traditional espresso and drip coffee options as well as baked goods from around the globe, including everything from Yuzu Ricotta Toast to Horchata Granita. Customers will have a hard time resisting one of the shop’s pie slices, which this season include Blackberry Ginger and Black Sesame Brown Butter Pies.

These are just a few of the many high-quality coffeehouses within easy walking distance of the Midtown luxury apartments at 555TEN. So, enjoy a fresh cup of joe and schedule a virtual or in-person tour of 555TEN today!

Winter Wonderland!

When you’re in the midst of New York City at the “most wonderful time of the year,” that means (frosted) window shopping, sipping hot apple cider and cocoa from the farmers’ market, and bundling up to go ice skating in some of the city’s magnificent public rinks. Just around a few corners from the Midtown Manhattan apartments at 555TEN is one of the season’s most beloved destinations—Bryant Park’s Bank of America Winter Village.

Unlike anything else in the city, this aptly self-proclaimed winter wonderland is every holiday lover’s paradise—with shopping, food, and festivities spread out in a European-inspired open-air market. But the piece de resistance of this holiday village is its 17,000-square-foot ice skating rink, the only free-admission rink of its kind in the city. Bring your own skates (or rent a pair) and show off your spins and jumps or clutch your partner as you glide along for the fun. Children under 10 can rent skate mates as they learn the basics safely.

This year, the skating rink has taken on added safety protocols to ensure skating remains safe for visitors and staff. Rental equipment will be sanitized, and high-touch surfaces disinfected throughout the day, with hand sanitizer and washing stations located around the park. Convenient online booking will guarantee skaters can stay safely distanced, and masks will be required for staff and skaters alike.

After a final brisk lap around the rink, a visit to the après-skate Lodge Deck cocktail bar is in order. Visitors can enjoy cocktails or hot beverages to warm up, as well as food items, including toasted marshmallows while taking in the Christmas Tree and skaters whizzing by.

For those who prefer staying off the ice, plenty of attractions still await. Nonskaters can book a 90-minute session of iceless curling at the curling cafe. Or, for a relaxing afternoon, cozy igloos are available for renting. These private, dome-shaped pockets of furnished space are ideal for an intimate gathering of friends of up to eight. Best of all, you can stay warm in the heated space while enjoying food and drink items ordered straight to your igloo, all in the center of one of the most bustling spots in the city.

Everyone can enjoy browsing or doing gift shopping in the holiday shops lining Bryant Park. The panoply of shops, all housed in custom-designed kiosks, include food purveyors; clothing and accessories vendors; home and pet suppliers; art, jewelry, and wellness gifts; and holiday wares for a true one-stop holiday shopping experience. Meanwhile, kiosks selling sweets, crepes, waffles, Chinese street snacks, and Italian dishes can fuel another round of shopping, skating, or ambling through the winter village.

This year, whether it’s for an ice-skating outing or a last-minute gift for the hardest-to-shop-for family member, residents of the Midtown rentals at 555TEN can experience the best of winter right near home at Bryant Park.

Cooking for the Holidays

The holiday season is all about bringing together family and friends with fantastic food. And there’s no better place to host than the no-fee luxury rentals at 555TEN. The kitchens here feature premium stainless-steel appliances for storing and cooking—plus quartz-stone countertops for food prep and dishing up in style. Here are some delicious recipes to try in your apartment as part of a seasonal soiree.

Spinach Tortellini Soup

A steaming bowl of soup is just what’s called for on a chilly Midtown day. This spinach tortellini recipe is blissfully simple to make: add cheese tortellini to stewed tomatoes, chicken stock, and spinach, then season with minced garlic and basil. Top tip: this soup tastes even better if your guests have begun their visit to 555TEN with a bracing dip in the Skytop Pool, with its dazzling views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. Send them up there first, and it’ll give you the time you need to finish making the meal too.

Black Bean Spaghetti Carbonara

Carbonara is a sure-fire winner in the winter months. But for this particular main course, eschew the usual weighty pasta in favor of this black bean spaghetti dish. It’s got all the rich flavors of a carbonara—smoked pancetta, eggs, double cream—but it’s lower-carb and a tad healthier. The unusual color of the spaghetti provides a talking point as well. Serve it up in the apartment living room, accompanied by wintry vistas of NYC plus a bottle or two of organic Toscana red from local Odyssey Wine & Spirits.

Barefoot Contessa’s Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp

Here’s the show-stealer for your get-together: a good old-fashioned apple crisp spiked with zingy orange and lemon juice and spiced up with nutmeg and cinnamon. This scrummy dessert is all about the juxtaposing textures and tastes: a soft, molten apple filling; crumbly, chewy oatmeal topping; and a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream to finish. If you hadn’t already won your guests over, you have now.

After-Dinner Digestif

The food may be polished off, but the party’s not over yet. Ascend to the 56th story of 555TEN to indulge in post-dinner digestifs with a view. While you and your friends and family sip a Calvados or Armagnac in the intimate lounge and bar—complete with indoor-outdoor fireplace—drink in the expansive views and regale yourselves with stories of holiday seasons gone by. 2020 may have been a strange year, but your guests will always remember this party fondly.

Outdoor Dining in Midtown West

According to the New York Times, there are about 25,000 restaurants and bars in NYC. And so, it’s no surprise that the city has a reputation as one of the world’s culinary capitals. Chefs and dishes from around the globe abound, offering a plethora of dining possibilities that every New Yorker knows is one of the great things about living here. Another aspect of the city is its resilience; the food scene is adapting to these unpredictable times, with flexibility and safety as a priority. Outdoor dining is here to stay, and by following a few simple precautions — like mask-wearing for staff and patrons (when not eating, of course), and distancing tables — you can enjoy all of the flavors of a night out at some of the best spots in town right near the Midtown luxury apartments at 555TEN.

While the well-appointed kitchens of 555TEN, with their state-of-the-art appliances and elegant design, are an ideal place to create your own meals with ease, why not don a mask, keep your distance, and sample some of the foodie delights to be found in the vicinity of your Hudson Yards luxury rentals?

Here are some top picks for dining al fresco within minutes of 555TEN:

Ponche Taqueria | 420 West 49th Street

There’s nothing quite like biting into an expertly prepared taco. While this signature Mexican dish may seem simple, once you tilt your head slightly and take a bite, you’ll find that it’s anything but. The tortilla, filling, and sauces combine to create a complex flavor that’s hard to describe — but which makes ordering more easy. Ponche Taqueria is one of the best places to indulge in authentic Mexican food in Hell’s Kitchen. This classic melding of street foods and contemporary touches is sure to please, whether you’re nibbling on chips and guacamole, digging into a tasty torta (a Mexican sandwich), or ordering taco after taco. As a bonus, you can BYOB, but there is a nominal corkage fee. Aprovecho!

Westville | 809 Ninth Avenue

It’s easy to see why Westville is a New York staple. Their dishes are ingredient-focused and unfussy — without being boring. See classic comfort food in a new light as you treat yourself to a decadent bowl of smoky mac and cheese or a crispy buttermilk chicken sandwich. Even the healthier options here are elevated. Think: dijon-dabbled Brussels sprouts or a tangy arugula and parmesan salad.

Boqueria | 260 West 40th Street

Are you dreaming of a trip to the capital of Catalonia, where the bounty of the Mediterranean meets an up-all-night dining culture? Boqueria transports your tastebuds to Barcelona’s lively tapas scene — and the outdoor setting helps to create the proper mood. You don’t have to dine as late as the Spanish, but no matter what time you decide to dig in, start your meal with a glass (or pitcher) of sangria. Then, let yourself go as you order small plates of signature tapas, like crispy and spicy patatas bravas, crunchy croquettas, and seafood-filled paella.

Live Above it All

The Midtown luxury apartments at 555TEN are known for their extensive suite of amenities, extraordinary city views, and central location in the heart of the city.

But the residences in the 555X collection, soaring high above the Manhattan skyline, offer much more — providing residents with a penthouse experience.

These premium residences represent truly elevated levels of comfort and style. One stunning feature is the panoramic views of the city, stretching from the Hudson River to the west; the East River, Queens, and Brooklyn to the east; and the Statue of Liberty on the horizon to the south. And in the kitchens, you’ll find top-of-the-line Miele appliances, an eye-catching kitchen backsplash, and custom-designed lighting fixtures and finishes created by celebrated interior designer Paris Forino. Residents can apply their own personal touches by selecting from custom paint palettes for their bedrooms and living rooms.

The benefits of the 555X collection extend beyond the homes themselves. Exclusive perks for residents include two personal training sessions, a massage, and Wi-Fi — all complimentary. Not only will residents have access to all of the extensive on-site amenities, they will have discounted valet parking and prioritized reservations to the private bowling alley at 555PLAY, which also features an arcade and a children’s playroom. Pet owners can rejoice with special rates for on-site grooming, play groups, and vet visits from pet care providers Throw Me a Bone. And let’s not forget about the climate-controlled dog run on the 12th floor; this four-legged paradise features trees, benches, and water fountains for dogs, in addition to the spectacular views of the city and the Hudson River.

And who better to help you than the pros? Take some time to peruse MasterClass.com, where you can learn from some of the best chefs on Earth. Tap into the farm-to-table movement with lessons from Alice Waters. Hone your skills with instruction from Gordon Ramsay — don’t worry, it’s a video class, so Gordon can’t critique you in person.

Meditation

Human beings have probably always felt the occasional need to step back from everyday life, take a deep breath, and ground themselves. With the stress of today’s world, centering yourself is a necessity, and there’s no better way to do it than with meditation. But if you don’t know how to get started, the Calm app is a popular choice for learning. And, perhaps best of all, you can use it anywhere. The app offers meditation tips, classes, and guided sessions for all levels of practice, along with a series of narrated stories to help you sleep. And, thanks to double-paned glass at 555TEN, you’ll be able to get your moment of zen a little more easily.

Yoga

In addition to calming and focusing the mind, it’s important to connect with your body. Yoga helps you do just that. Get some expert guidance online from Gaia (formerly known as Gaiam), a leader in yoga and wellness for over three decades. This renowned wellness company has fostered a community of yogis through products, classes, and online content. The options are endless — bend, stretch, and give yourself a relaxing workout with yoga practices ranging from kundalini to vinyasa flow.

Whether you’re in one of 555TEN’s lofts or a three-bedroom penthouse, there’s more than enough room to roll out the yoga mat and do your sun salutations. And in these Midtown West luxury apartments for rent, you can do all your health and wellness activities surrounded by stunning views of NYC.

5 NYC Rentals With Outdoor Pools to Beat the August Heat, Off The Mrkt

The summer heat may be at its peak, but residents of 555TEN have an easy way to keep cool right at home. Atop the 56-story building’s Midtown luxury apartments sits a stunning roof deck with a spacious pool and sweeping views of the city and the East River from its perch 650 feet above street level. In addition to taking a dip, residents can relax in one of the roof deck’s private cabanas or on a chaise lounge or enjoy some quality time at the building’s all-seasons club and bar.

 

555TEN’s Midtown West

With summer in full swing, bicycling along the Hudson River Park or soaking in the sights, shops, and sounds of Midtown West are just a few ways to take advantage of the sunny weather and the best the city has to offer. Residents of the 555TEN luxury rentals can enjoy an unparalleled suite of rooftop amenities, including the pool, sundeck with cabanas, and club and bar, perfect for lounging with the latest bestseller and a well-deserved cocktail. But just a stone’s throw away from these Midtown West apartments is the Hudson River Greenway, which provides abundant options for staying active while soaking in the greenery and the great outdoors. And, of course, the ideal way to cap off a summer evening is a meal from one of the city’s finest restaurants, which are serving their world-class fare for no-contact delivery, takeout, and limited outdoor dining.

For a breezy jaunt on a bright weekend afternoon or a long-distance cycling session to keep in shape, the Hudson River Greenway is the right destination. One of New York City’s most welcoming outdoor spaces, the well-maintained thoroughfare extends over 12 miles across the West Side of Manhattan, just parallel to the Hudson River, and offers spectacular, unobstructed water views. The Greenway is also removed from city traffic, with separate lanes for cyclists and pedestrian traffic, for added safety and convenience. For additional summer action (or relaxation), the pathway is dotted by kayaking facilities and well-manicured lawns for rest or a casual picnic, as well as playgrounds and basketball courts for an impromptu pickup game.

After a day in the sun, 555TEN residents can return home to prepare a replenishing meal, with the aid of top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances and quartz-stone countertops, ideal for spreading out and preparing the season’s freshest ingredients. But for maximum convenience, a range of superb dining options are all close by. For the latest from veteran chefs David Bank and Brian Ghaw, Taladwat features what Eater NY describes as “exceptionally delicious” seasonal Thai. Their authentic “countryside” recipes represent the best of Thailand’s regional cuisine, with a range of coconut stews, satisfying mains, and a colorful assortment of spice-infused dishes. Order the tom turmeric with a thick crab cake as its centerpiece, or the pork belly in a sweet and spicy soy broth, or anything really, for convenient takeout or delivery to your door.

One of the neighborhood’s perennial crowd-pleasers, B Side, serves up brick-oven pizza baked to perfection. The crust is quite chewy, and their inventive signature pizzas include the Carbonara, which combines fontina, pancetta, panna with egg, and the Killer Bee, which mixes sweet and spicy with soppressata, garlic puree, chili oil, and honey. For a healthy accompaniment, the roasted Brussel sprouts or black kale salad with pickled, dried apricots, almonds, and mint present the same complexity of flavors as B Side’s beloved pizzas.

For a pastry to accompany your morning coffee or for a warm, crackling baguette to accompany every meal of the week, a visit to Sullivan Street Bakery is in order. This quintessentially New York City bakery was founded by Jim Lahey, the first recipient of the James Beard Award for Outstanding Baker, and has become the destination for foodies and anyone who appreciates an exquisitely baked loaf of bread. The soft community loaf, cornetto, pains au chocolate, focaccia pizza, and pasta, among other delectable goods, are now available for delivery and pickup, along with their cookbooks, which will enable you to recreate some of Lahey’s tasty treats at home.

With a wealth of options for each meal of the day—and for staying active with fresh air, sun, and Hudson River views—residents of the luxury apartments for rent at 555TEN can always make the most of the summer, all within the dynamic Midtown West neighborhood.
