Algin’s Curated Guide to Walkable NYC Parks
When you live in one of Algin Management’s no-fee rentals, you’re likely never far from a beautiful park. Here are four of the finest green spaces—just a hop, skip, and a jump away from various NYC apartments in the Algin portfolio.
Washington Square Park near Hilary Gardens
Across the road from Hilary Gardens is Washington Square Park—a leafy spot where there’s always something going on. Street entertainers perform for passers-by. Kids and parents cool off near the fountain. Studious chess players consider their next move in the shade of the elms. Pooch owners chat while pets let off steam on the dog runs. Join in with the fun or simply take a stroll along the park’s pathways, pausing to admire the grand Washington Square Arch.
Stuyvesant Square Park near The Liane and The Townsway
This refined park is a fleeting walk from both The Liane and The Townsway—offering respite from NYC’s hustle and bustle with its attractive fountains, English elm trees, and tulip beds in the springtime. It’s a fitting location to delve into a book on NYC’s history; after all, the park is named for Peter Gerard Stuyvesant, cofounder of the New-York Historical Society. Go seek out his statue here, as well as that of composer Antonin Dvorak, who once called this neighborhood home.
Asphalt Green Park near 330 East 85th Street
If you’re looking to rekindle your love of sports—or discover a new sport to fall in love with—Asphalt Green is for you. This wedge of green space boasts soccer and baseball fields, tennis courts, running tracks, swimming pools, and lots more. You can join a league with friends, focus on individual training, or get stuck into a wealth of other activities. Residents of 330 East 85th Street are just a 10-minute walk from these facilities. Or a five-minute jog.
Central Park near Algin Apartments
Covering a staggering 843 acres, it’s little wonder that Central Park neighbors with a number of Algin Management properties. From ARO, you’re less than 15 minutes from the tranquility of Hallett Nature Sanctuary. The apartments at 1476 and 1486 Lexington Avenue are moments from the world-class museums just across from the park, including the Cooper Hewitt and the Jewish Museum. From The Parkview, take Sunday strolls through the serene Conservatory Garden. Go on reinvigorating jogs around the reservoir’s Shuman Running Track from the brownstones on East 96th Street. 461 Central Park West, meanwhile, overlooks Central Park’s Great Hill and its North Woods—bristling with wildlife and ripe for exploration.
A green stroll is never too far away from your Algin home. Contact us to learn more about all the no-fee Manhattan apartments that are currently available for rent.

Laurence Towers: No-Fee Apartments Available to Rent in NYC
New York City’s Laurence Towers offers one- to three-bedroom residences with spectacular Manhattan views. A handful of apartments are currently available for rental; here’s what to expect from them.
Hallways and Kitchens
Stepping into any Laurence Towers apartment, you’ll immediately appreciate the freshly laid wood flooring. High-quality, hard-wearing, and beautiful to behold, these floors continue throughout each residence, from hallway to living room to bedroom. As you enter, you’ll also discover the kitchen, fitted with stainless-steel appliances, including refrigerator/freezer, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. It’s everything you need to rustle up meals or prepare dinner parties. Each kitchen’s modernist-style cabinetry is effortlessly stylish, and ample in size.
Continuing into the living room, you’re drawn to the generously-proportioned windows. Sunlight streams in, creating an inviting, light-filled space for enjoying meals, reading books—or even performing your daily yoga routine. The windows also offer enviable New York City views—across rooftop gardens and parks. Some look out over the East River, too. Laurence Towers’ living rooms easily accommodate sofas, coffee tables and dining furniture. Some also walk out onto a terrace or balcony—perfect for coffee (or cocktails) al fresco.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
The bedrooms at Laurence Towers command more urban panoramas: think skyscrapers, treetops, those iconic water towers—what a way to wake up each morning. Additionally, each bedroom boasts the kind of walk-in closet space that’s sorely sought-after in this part of NYC. Adjacent is the bathroom, gleaming white with brick-shaped glazed tiles. You can shower in the mornings—perhaps after using Laurence Towers’ on-site fitness center—and indulge in evening soaks in the tub. Fixtures and fittings, from vanity to towel rail, are all freshly appointed.
Amenities and Neighborhood
All Laurence Towers residents have access to impressive amenities, including a 24-hour doorman, attended parking garage and a live-in manager there to address any queries. Step outside, and you’re in the highly desirable part of town where Murray Hill meets Kips Bay. Within easy walking distance is a wealth of restaurants, cocktail bars, green space like Madison Square and Bryant Parks—plus Manhattan icons including the Empire State Building and Grand Central Station.
