BLOG: Going Green in Murray Hill
Living in Murray Hill means comfort and convenience in a neighborhood of cozy brownstones and hip restaurants, where the beating heart of the world’s greatest metropolis meets a quieter lifestyle along the East River. But just because you make your home in the shadow of the Empire State Building doesn’t mean you can’t live a greener, cleaner life every day. Here at Algin Management, we encourage residents of our luxury no-fee apartment rentals in Manhattan to live the least wasteful and most efficient lives possible. And that starts with how we buy and store our food. Here are some simple steps Murray Hill residents can take when grocery shopping to help preserve a livable world for generations to come.
When shopping at a nearby grocery store, like the popular Trader Joe’s on Third Avenue, bring along reusable bags to carry and store what you buy. Single-use plastic bags are one of the most wasteful products used by Americans. According to the Center for Biological Diversity, “The average American family takes home almost 1,500 plastic shopping bags a year.” By simply buying a few reusable bags and using them for everyday shopping trips, Murray Hill residents can effortlessly help put an end to this type of pollution.
While shopping, look for recycled paper products, such as the paper towels made by Seventh Generation. Made from at least 80 percent post-consumer recycled fiber, these paper towels help mitigate the impact that harvesting forests for paper has on the environment. Simple decisions made while shopping can have a big impact on your family’s carbon footprint, and choosing recycled paper products is an easy and inexpensive way to promote stewardship of the Earth.
But what about when you get home with your groceries in your reusable bag? Take a look at the range of environmentally conscious items at Flying Tiger Copenhagen just south of Madison Square Park, where you will find metal and glass lunchboxes and storage containers that are perfect for keeping your dry goods fresh without generating a ton of used recyclables. Plus, with a host of fun cookware and serving options, Flying Tiger Copenhagen will help you stock your new kitchen with unique items.
Best of all, these items are reusable, making them a smart investment when moving into your new home. We hope these tips have been helpful and that residents of the Murray Hill homes from Algin Management will take them to heart the next time they head to the grocery store.
We look forward to welcoming you to your new, no-fee NYC apartment rental. Rent with us today!

BLOG: Upcoming Performances at Lincoln Center
For those fortunate enough to live in the luxury no-fee apartment rentals at 242 West 61st Street or Sessanta, Lincoln Center is a beacon of world-class culture right on your doorstep. Let yourself be lured away from the comfort of your living room to soak up the sounds of great performers bringing unforgettable moments to the hallowed stages of this legendary performing arts destination.
Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center | Feb. 7 through 18, Alice Tully Hall
Here’s a wonderful chance to familiarize yourself with the genius of Ludwig van Beethoven, courtesy of a series of concerts presented by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Delve into the German maestro’s catalogue of string quartets, played in the order they were composed between 1798 and 1826. Come to each concert to appreciate the incredible groundbreaking leaps in imagination and technique Beethoven made from composition to composition, or just treat yourself to a one-off night of immortal music, impeccably performed by the Danish String Quartet.
Feb. 14 and 15 | Rose Theater
Could there be a more romantic way to mark Valentine’s Day than spending it in the company of jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves? The New York Times describes her as “The most admired jazz diva since Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday.” Indeed, her talent for melting hearts with soulful vocals and hypnotizing storytelling is practically unsurpassed. Score a pair of tickets to this show and your partner will still be talking about it next Valentine’s Day.
Feb. 15 through March 14 | Metropolitan Opera House
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “fiancée swapping” opera arrives at the Metropolitan Opera House, with a distinctly NYC twist. Phelim McDermott’s staging brings the action to the raucous boardwalks of Coney Island — with a backdrop of big dippers and big wheels to go with the big voices of soprano Nicole Car, mezzo-soprano Serena Malfi, tenor Ben Bliss, and bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni. This is a unique way to revel in a European opera classic, with all the fun of the fair.
March 11 through 20 | Bruno Walter Auditorium
So accomplished are Zeshan B’s Indo-Pakistani renditions of soul classics, urban love songs, Memphis blues, and civil-rights anthems, that he was invited to perform at the White House at the request of President Barack Obama. Though this incredible performer sings in a range of languages — from Urdu to Punjabi to English — his songs of heartache, injustice, and loss resonate universally. This series of six shows at Bruno Walter Auditorium is targeted at a younger audience and makes for the ideal family outing.
