Top Of The List



Midtown is New York Citys well-known Manhattan center. The area boasts hundreds of attractions, historical buildings, iconic buildings, shopping outlets and more which can appeal to both full-time residents and those who divide their time between multiple locations. Shopping includes Barneys, Bloomingdales, Macys, Tiffany & Co., and much more which can cater to both casual shoppers as well as fashion connoisseurs. Cuisine is never lacking in Midtown either. From contemporary American cuisine, to fine French dishes, as well as a large amount of sushi, ethnic and even the ever-popular BBQ and Deli style sandwiches.

Grand Views of the East River

The East River is a saltwater straight which divides Long Island from the Bronx. This waterway is popular with boaters, photographers and fishermen. It has also been featured in a large number of songs, featured in television shows, and has been a part of numerous works of art including the popular 1862 Edward Hopper oil on canvas Blackwells Island. The river has often been at the center of efforts to use it for tidal power, many of which have failed due to the exceptionally strong current. In 2015, however, Verdant Power will begin operations to install up to 30 tidal turbines which will not only make the East River one of the most popular inland straights for boating and fishing in New York City, but also the most important to harnessing hydroelectricity and potentially making NYC more sustainable.

Spending Time in Manhattan and New York City

The luxurious new condos and apartments of the 252 East 57th Street building will offer residents panoramic views of Central Park, the Manhattan skyline and distant skyscrapers of NYC. Buildings such as this will cater to both full time New York City residents as well as those who would like a second home for business or pleasure. The City offers attractions which are known around the world including the most popular Central Park. Often featured in television sitcoms and feature films, this massive 843 acre landscape provides a place for joggers, bikers, dog walkers, and sports enthusiasts. It can serve as a haven for those who simply want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life for a time, and is an excellent place to watch and enjoy birds, squirrels and other animals. For those who love art, Central Park boasts hundreds of sculptures and independently established sidewalk art installations. For residents and tourists alike, Central Park is definitely a place to visit.
