Neighborhood Highlight: Upper West Side
Life for an Algin resident on the Upper West Side is one of convenience. Everything you could want in or near a no-fee apartment in Manhattan is on-site or just a moment away.
With three of Algin’s properties located in the Upper West Side, including Sessanta, 461 Central Park West, and 242 West 61st St., you’re never more than a few minutes from world-class facilities such as Lincoln Center, the American Museum of Natural History, and Columbia University. And the amenities at all three locations are second to none. The Upper West Side is the perfect place to become a part of a vibrant community.
In addition to the finest performance spaces and internationally renowned institutions, all three of these properties put you close to Central Park. The seemingly endless expanse of the world’s most famous green space makes for the ultimate playground. Explore miles of paths, lounge on the lawns, or play your favorite sport on one of many fields or courts. In the winter, ice skating sets the mood for the season, while spring flowers, summer sun, and fall festivals and leaf viewing put you in close touch with nature.
Gaze at beautiful views of the park from your home at 461 Central Park West. Then make a feast like no other in your stunning kitchen with stainless-steel appliances. A subway stop is a short two blocks away, ready to take you where you need to be.
The residences at 242 West 61st St., too, have elegant stainless-steel appliances that provide clean, contemporary styling and performance to your kitchen, while the laundry room with commercial washer and dryer eliminates having to go out to have those bulkier items cleaned. For those needing extra storage, storage bins are also available for an additional fee.
Families will find Sessanta to be an irresistible base for all sorts of excursions. Pier 96 with its kayak and canoe rentals and Pier 90 with its cruise terminal sits to the east for those looking for adventures on the river or even the high seas. The Hudson River Greenway and its miles and miles of scenic waterfront paths are perfect for running, walking, or biking. And if you feel like staying home, the 40-foot indoor pool, spa, outdoor tennis courts, and Sessanta Club are sure to keep you entertained. Residents from the other properties are welcome to use the amenities at Sessanta for an additional fee.
For those looking for no-fee apartment rentals in NYC, Algin has the perfect Upper West Side home for you. Conveniently located near shopping, culture, outdoor adventure, and entertainment, these homes provide the best of New York right at your doorstep. What’s more, the convenience and access to essential and luxury amenities such as an indoor pool are another bonus to calling one of these Algin properties home.

Sunsets at The Parkview
Manhattan boasts some world-beating sunsets. The combination of iconic cityscapes and languid summer evenings is the stuff dreams are made of. Even more so, when you’re gifted with somewhere special to watch it unfold. Residents of The Parkview—a 19-story luxury rental apartment building, steps away from Madison Avenue and the historic Carnegie Hill neighborhood—have just the alfresco on-site destination to drink in an NYC sundown.
While the city is more subdued than usual—and the usual rooftop restaurants and bars remain closed—what a joy it is to have your own spacious roof deck, festooned with pretty planters. After a hard day working from home (or harder still, doing the childcare), the roof deck’s comfortable wooden benches are ideal for reclining with a chilled beer or wine. Put a podcast or playlist on your headphones and watch the majestic skyline gradually change color.
The roof deck also features stylish picnic benches. On the weekend, why not whip up a few tasty salads and pasta dishes—in your contemporary kitchen with granite countertops—and pack them up in a basket? You don’t have far to go: your park in the sky awaits, with vistas of the East River, Upper East Side, and Central Park stretching out before you. And as a predinner aperitif, why not mix up a tequila sunset cocktail? Certainly fitting for the occasion.
We’ve already mentioned children—and if you do have little ones, they, too, are accommodated by The Parkview’s roof deck. If they aren’t yet worn out from playing in the nearby Central Park during the day, they can continue their escapades on the roof deck’s playground. How many kids can say they have their own outdoor recreation ground, 19 stories up?
The roof deck is there for you any time of day: a spot for early-morning yoga while the sun rises over the river, the right place for some fresh air while you’re on a long conference call or taking a half-hour lunch break with a view. Or maybe you’re doing a bit of bird or plane watching with the kids. You could even take a sketchbook up there one afternoon and recreate the dazzling summer views on paper.
Even as Manhattan begins to get back to normal—and the cornucopia of museums, shops, and bars surrounding The Parkview start to reopen—residents know that whenever they need it, their rooftop oasis is waiting for them.
