Tennis Pros and Picnics at Sessanta This Spring
Spring is in the air, and after a year spent sheltering indoors, New Yorkers are itching to get back into the swing of outdoor activities. Residents at Sessanta, the no-fee apartments in Manhattan from Algin Management, have access to a suite of private indoor and outdoor amenities centered around a professional-grade tennis court, a rare offering in the heart of NYC. Come with us on a comprehensive tour of the fitness, wellness, and recreation amenities that Sessanta residents can enjoy every day!
Sessanta’s amenity package* begins with its full-sized tennis court, which features a US Open-style finish and is surrounded by a charming English garden, transporting players temporarily away from the hustle and bustle of the Upper West Side. Experienced players will love having access to a private court just an elevator ride away, while novices and those who need a little help with their backhand are able to reserve court time and private lessons via Tennis Innovators, which connects tennis pros with learners of all ages and skill levels and brings them together at the Sessanta court.
Of course, residents who prefer other forms of exercise won’t be left out of the loop. Sessanta is home to a suite of health and wellness amenities, including a 40-foot, temperature-controlled indoor lap pool, a fully equipped fitness center with 30,000 square feet worth of cardio machines and weights, and a dedicated yoga and Pilates studio. Within these spaces, residents have their choice of web-enabled spin classes via Peloton bikes, peaceful meditation in the quiet yoga studio, and intense lap swimming, all without leaving the comfort of their building.
However, spring is about more than keeping your New Year’s resolution to hit the gym. At Sessanta, residents have access to a range of outdoor spaces designed to help make the most of balmy weather. In addition to the English garden, where the pop-pop of nearby tennis play creates a sophisticated ambiance, residents have access to the courtyard garden, a spacious, peaceful oasis, where perennial plantings create an atmosphere that’s perfect for some quiet reading time or a picnic with friends and family.
In addition to unmatched amenities, the building’s concierge and staff are ready to help with everything from a last-minute dinner reservation to a long-term parking solution. Just beyond the front door await the many attractions and conveniences of Manhattan’s Upper West Side. With all of this in mind, why not spend this spring making the most of life at Sessanta?

Algin’s Celebration of Women__ Read article
Algin’s Celebration of Women
March is Women’s History Month, which gives us a chance to reflect on those who have changed our lives personally and transformed the world. Since 1987, March has been a time to highlight innovative, creative, and revolutionary women. Throughout the year, Algin Management seeks to appreciate, commemorate, and amplify the voices of all the fearless women on our team, in our social circles, and in our families.
In fact, the founder of Algin, Albert Ginsberg, was so affected and inspired by the women in his family that he chose to name some of the most enchanting and alluring NYC no-fee rentals buildings in our portfolio after them. An unabashed family man, Ginsberg celebrated his daughters with two apartment buildings, The Liane and Hilary Gardens, and gave their mother’s name to The Pearl. Let’s see why these buildings are notable enough for Ginsberg to honor the most important women in his life.
Gramercy is one of Manhattan’s toniest enclaves with tree-lined streets, easy access to Midtown East, Madison Square Park, and all points Downtown, and, of course, the eponymous Gramercy Park that is the centerpiece of this old-school neighborhood. On quiet 21st Street, The Liane stands out as a convenience-filled respite from the bustle of the city. Here, you’ll find homes with all the amenities you’ll ever need, including state-of-the-art appliances, laundry, a live-in superintendent. Let the elevator whisk you from the immaculately renovated lobby to your studio or one-bedroom home where you can experience the ultimate in Gramercy living.
This soaring high-rise right in the heart of iconic Greenwich Village is one of the city’s most desirable locations. At Hilary Gardens, you have access to the culture and cuisine that Downtown living affords in a modern and well-appointment home. These sun-flooded studios, one- and two-bedroom homes are the perfect place for you and your family to experience it all. But you don’t have to look too far to find fun. Just head to the rooftop sky deck and swim in a heated pool* as you take in truly breathtaking panoramic views of the entire city.
The Pearl towers 23 stories above the Upper East Side, affording residents world-class vistas from their luxury homes in the sky through floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s a lot of shopping and dining to be had on the UES, but with gorgeous hardwood floors, custom kitchens, terraces, and sumptuous bathrooms, you might never want to leave, whether you’re in a one-, two-, or three-bedroom abode.

A Gem in Greenwich Village
Located at the corner of Waverly and Mercer Streets in the heart of Greenwich Village, Hilary Gardens puts residents in the center of the world’s greatest city. This doorman building’s grand entrance and lobby create a passage between Manhattan’s iconic streets and spacious, light-filled homes, where large living room windows reveal the cityscape. For even better vistas, residents can head up to the building’s rooftop deck to enjoy sweeping Manhattan views.
Originally built in 1976, Hilary Gardens has undergone a full renovation, bringing the building’s lobby as well as the kitchens and baths in the residences up to modern luxe standards. The 24-hour doorman and on-site valet make sure that each resident’s return is smooth and comfortable as they welcome them into the lobby, where 20-foot ceilings make an immediate impression.
The residences themselves are perfect for entertaining, working from home, or just relaxing with family. Recently renovated kitchens feature stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and sleek wooden cabinetry, giving residents the tools and space they need to make gourmet feasts for visitors. The bathrooms also received a makeover and are now clad in luxurious Carrara marble and appointed with high-end fixtures. Large windows flood these no-fee rentals in NYC with natural light, and some select residences feature spacious private balconies with Empire State Building views.
During the summer months, all residents at Hilary Gardens have access to the building’s grand rooftop deck, which stands 35 stories above the street.

Between epic views, the large pool, and ample space to relax on chaise lounges, the rooftop deck at Hilary Gardens feels a million miles away from the sidewalks below.
But that’s what makes living at Hilary Gardens so special. Residents can grab a meal at one of their favorite spots on MacDougal Street, take a stroll through Washington Square Park on their way home, and be standing on the rooftop deck 15 minutes later. So, why not head over to the availability page and secure your new Greenwich Village rental at Hilary Gardens today?
