With the mighty East River flowing right below you, you’ll be riding high on the waves of New York City living in this stylish apartment. Clean lines, dark wood floors and bright white walls create an air of refined simplicity in the living room, with a dining table framed by large windows inviting you to start mornings off with a bagel and coffee before a day of sightseeing. The bedroom, too, is all about the light with a large window and comfortable bed providing an instantly soothing wake-up before you hit the on-site gym downstairs. When you’re not hanging out at home, go out and explore your surroundings. You couldn’t be better placed to visit some of the city’s most iconic sights, including the Chrysler and Empire State buildings (both a fifteen-minute walk away), the United Nations Headquarters (ten minutes away on foot) and Grand Central Station (a twenty-minute stroll away). With the bright lights of Times Square also just a thirty-minute walk from your door, there’s no end to the entertainment in store here.

About Kips Bay

Kips Bay is a mainly residential neighbourhood, moments away from the rush of Midtown, which has lovely waterfront views across to Brooklyn and Queens. The neighbourhood combines historic brick townhouses with new high-rise apartments, and is home to some of the country's best hospitals - a good neighbourhood for the hypochondriacs amongst you perhaps? Some people accuse it of being non-descript and, it's true, it's definitely not going to win...
