A Virtual Tour of The Townsway
Looking for a new, no-fee rental in NYC? The first step is to take a virtual tour of the apartments available at The Townsway—giving yourself a feel for the size and quality of these covetable NYC residences. Like what you see? They’re available for immediate occupancy in 2021. Let’s get a taster of the one-bedroom and studio apartments on offer right now.
A Wonderful One-Bedroom Home
A virtual walk around Residence 8M shows off this light and airy one-bedroom rental. From the comfort of your current home, picture yourself rustling up something delicious in this Townsway kitchen, fitted with stainless-steel appliances and custom cabinetry. Take an online stroll—across the hardwood floors—into the living room, visualizing the sofas, prints, and plants you’ll use to make this apartment a home. Do the same in the bedroom, with its capacious walk-in closet and Manhattan skyline views. You’ll notice there’s an additional walk-in closet in the hallway outside the bedroom. Then admire the freshly appointed bathroom with European tiles and updated fixtures. Something else to admire is the price of this one-bedroom apartment: just $2,695 per month.
A Superlative Studio
Step into Studio 1E, and you can immediately picture yourself hosting socially distanced gatherings with your close family. The bedroom walks out onto a private ground-floor patio, ensconced by a smart wooden fence, lending privacy and quietude. This kind of outdoor space is a real find in New York City and will prove perfect for mulled drinks around the fire pit in the winter and BBQs and picnics in the spring and summer. Studio 1E’s interior is equally welcoming: the open-aspect kitchen—again, with stainless-steel appliances and custom cabinetry—looks out over the bedroom and living space and forms an inviting and practical place to work, rest, and play. Elsewhere, walk-in closets provide ample storage space. All this, for just $2,650 a month.
All the Added Bonuses
While The Townsway’s virtual tours are ideal introductions to the apartments, they can’t show you everything the building has to offer. They don’t, for example, show you the 24-hour doorman, the dedicated laundry room, the live-in resident manager who’s there for any questions and requests, or the on-site parking*. The tours also don’t show you the slew of Manhattan shops, bars, and parks situated on the doorstep of these no-fee apartments. Then again, if—as we think—you like what you see, you’ll be calling in early in the New Year to see The Townsway in person.

International Cuisine in Murray Hill__ Read article
International Cuisine in Murray Hill
If you want a central Manhattan location, there’s no better place to look than the lively neighborhood of Murray Hill. Residents have easy access to Wall Street and Midtown’s business hubs for work, as well as the unique culture of the East and West Villages, Chelsea, and the rest of Downtown. To top it all off, no-fee Murray Hill rentals from Algin Management afford you access to one of NYC’s most important features: food, food, and more food.
No matter what no-fee Algin Management property you reside in, you’re always a short walk away from some world-class international cuisine. So, let’s take a grand tour of some of the delectable international delicacies without ever leaving Murray Hill.
Holding off on travel plans to our southerly neighbor, Mexico? Just take a quick—under five-minute—stroll from 530 Second Ave. to Park Avenue South and indulge in the delicious and authentic Mexican dishes of Dos Caminos. Start with their freshly made tortilla chips, paired with a salsa flight ranging from mild to muy picante, or street-food-style “bocaditos,” like cheesy fundido dip or crispy taquitos. Dig in and get ready for the house specials of rich and spicy enchiladas, enveloped in handmade tortillas smothered in savory sauces, or a sizzling fajita. You’d be remiss in visiting Dos Caminos without ordering their “made-to-order” guacamole and their expertly prepared signature margaritas. Best of all, if you don’t feel like dining in, Dos Caminos is currently offering takeout.
If you’re in the mood for some genuine Italian food, we suggest you try a dish or two from Tarallucci e Vino. This isn’t your typical “red sauce joint”; it’s part of a restaurant group, initially focused on European expats, that’s been around for almost 20 years, and for a good reason: the food is unparalleled. Bring a bit of Abruzzo home when you order delivery from Tarallucci e Vino to your apartment at 148 East 30th St. Indulge in cheese and cured meat with a Salumi E Formaggi board or go meatless with a transcendent lasagna made with an “Impossible Meat” ragu. Recently, Gambero Rosso hailed this spot as one of the “Top Italian Restaurants in New York.”
Sushi and sake lovers in Murray Hill worship the delicate, almost artistic rolls and sashimi at Sushi Yasuda. One Zagat review hails its culinary artistry as the sushi “of your dreams.” And the best part is you can have it ordered straight to your home.
If you feel like forgoing dining out or ordering in and want a more hands-on approach to dinner, skip the grocery store and go straight to the source of delicious food. Lebanese restaurant ilili serves at-home cooking kits of their fare. Impress your family with a fall-off-the-bone roast chicken or a distinctive and succulent braised lamb.
When you’re in Murray Hill, you’re surrounded by some of the most incredible food in the city—and the world. To find the ideal home for you, contact Algin Management’s team for more information about their no-fee rental apartments today.
