A Summer at Sessanta__ Read article
A Summer at Sessanta
With a season of sheltering in place already under our belts, Americans are looking at their homes with new appreciation, and interior space is becoming increasingly premium. With sleek, spacious interiors and a suite of amenities that rival most resorts, the no-fee rental apartments at Sessanta are some of the most desirable homes in Manhattan right now. These modern homes combine comfort, security, and recreation without sacrificing proximity to New York City’s best public spaces.
The building’s 301 homes range in size from studios to three bedrooms and feature spacious terraces—dependent on availability and residence type—as well as interiors decked out with the finest finishes and equipped with state-of-the-art appliances. Conveniences like the in-unit washer/dryer and stainless-steel appliances make doing chores a treat, while bathrooms clad in Italian porcelain tile with Kohler fixtures make the morning routine a joy. Floor-to-ceiling windows admit ample natural light and provide unobstructed Upper West Side views, while private terraces allow residents to take a breath of fresh air from the safety of their own home.
Sessanta also really comes to life and summer living in the amenity spaces*, which give residents the ability to exercise and relax without leaving their building. Social distancing of six feet and masks are, in fact, required in all common spaces, and the building has also installed sanitation stations. In the fitness center, Sessanta residents will find a full-size indoor lap pool as well as an exercise room with a full range of modern equipment. Outside, Sessanta features a full-size tennis court for exclusive use by the residents, an exceedingly rare amenity in Manhattan and one that sets the building apart from the competition. Next to the court, a peaceful English garden, with perennial and annual flowers, paints the colorful backdrop for taking a break during a day spent working from home. Residents will also love enjoying their morning coffee or an evening cold brew in the garden, which brings a verdant, cool vibe to the concrete and edgy Manhattan landscape.
The building was named “Sessanta,” which means “sixty” in Italian, because of its address on 60th Street between Amsterdam and West End Avenues, a location that grants residents convenient access to some of NYC’s best outdoor spaces. After all, Sessanta sits just two blocks from the border of Central Park, which holds more than enough activities and exploration for any summer, while Riverside Park South is just a block in the opposite direction. Whether they desire a cool stroll along the Hudson River or a ramble down park paths beneath tall trees, residents will appreciate how close these famous green spaces are to Lincoln Center.

Surprising a Loved One in Murray Hill
Now more than ever, people are appreciating the simple gestures in life. Show someone you love how much they mean to you by arranging a romantic evening in. Plenty of nearby places, including restaurants, florists, and cocktail bars, can help you throw together an intimate occasion in your Algin Management apartment in Murray Hill.
Nothing says “I love you” like a beautiful assortment of flowers, so get your surprise underway with an order of blooms. Gabriela Wakeham offers same-day delivery on upscale bouquets: think arrangements of orchids, tulips, and lisianthus—or red roses with long stems presented in nautilus vases. Sahola will deliver to your apartment at short notice too: their artfully concocted bouquets include themes on Monet, Orchid Obsession, and Moulin Rouge—and will leave your Murray Hill apartment looking splendid (and smelling fragrant) for days after.
Missing your favorite Midtown cocktail bars? Some will bring their drinks to you. While your partner is still enjoying their flowers, galvanize your wooing moves with drinks couriered directly from Patent Pending. Usually dishing up the liquid goods in their Radio Wave Building venue, right now they’re serving up the likes of an Illuminated Manhattan (an explosive mix featuring Campfire Whiskey, aged rum, scotch, Madeira, gunpowder tea, and mole) or an AC/DC (Blanche Armagnac, peach, fennel, and genever—among other things). You may notice the names all relate to electricity: Patent Pending is based in the building where Nikola Tesla performed his experiments on radio waves. One or two of these concoctions will certainly spark up your evening.
It’s no secret that New York City is great for eating out, but right now, many of its best restaurants are offering at-home eat-in. Imagine the look on your partner’s face when they answer the door to a dinner for two of short rib spring rolls, followed by filet mignon served with frizzled onions and grilled tomato from high-end steak restaurant La Brochette. If you’re after a spicier evening, order in from Baby Bo’s Cantina, a beloved Mexican eatery that’s been serving Murray Hill locals for 25 years. ‘Wow’ your better half’s taste buds with smoky black bean soup, grilled green chile shrimp fajitas, and tortillas loaded with chicken, sweet plantains, Monterey Jack, and mole poblano. Then relax in your Murray Hill residence with romantic music playing and your stomachs—and your hearts—full.
