Midtown East is filled with landmarks: Grand Central Station with its high ceiling full of stars and the Campbell Apartment, the United Nations headquarters in Midtown overlooking the East River, the Chrysler Building shooting into the sky with its Art Deco glory. What part of New York City is more iconic.
The Midtown area has the energy of commerce with the beauty of glorious old architecture – including great townhouses. There are also many condo and co-op skyscrapers with open city views, so at night you can see Midtown spread like a blanket beneath your feet. Some of the layouts in Midtown are loft-like with oversized windows, to take advantage of the spectacular views, while some are set up along more classic and traditional lines with foyers and en-suite baths. At 250 East 49th Street, the ceilings are nearly twelve feet high, and the condo units come with Poggenpohl kitchens and spa-like limestone baths. The amenities of these luxury Midtown apartment buildings often include health clubs, party rooms, storage and parking.
Once you live in Midtown, you’ll find the lifestyle isn’t just walk-to-work – it’s walk-to-everything. Midtown East residents find their shopping at Bloomingdale’s, a New York landmark since 1861, and their recreation in Central Park, one of the world’s most magnificent green sanctuaries, which offers bike riding, rollerblading, and ice skating as well as Shakespeare in the Park.
