Fall in Love With Fall on the Upper East Side
Autumn might just be the most delightful season in NYC. Think: strolls through the golden foliage of Central Park with a pumpkin-spice latte in hand, or taking in a seasonal show on the Museum Mile. Algin Management’s enviable collection of Upper East Side apartments couldn’t be better placed — right in the heart of the autumnal action.
An Afternoon in Central Park
The 96th Street Brownstones combine old-world charm (just look at the exterior’s decorative scrollwork) with freshly renovated apartments for the discerning no-fee renter. The buildings also practically neighbor with Central Park. This time of the year is perfect for filling a flask with cider and losing yourself in the crimsons and golds of the Ramble, or feeling crisp leaves beneath your feet in Shakespeare Garden. Spend a Saturday afternoon admiring the bald cypress and willows along the Harlem Meer, or revel in a spot of autumnal “forest bathing” in the Hallett Nature Sanctuary. Or admire the foliage as you stroll the Jacqueline Onassis Reservoir, all just a walking distance from home.
Taking in a Fall Exhibition
Fall in Manhattan is an enchanting show in itself — but autumn’s also the season for exploring the Upper East Side’s grand museums and galleries. Delve into the universe of Surrealism at The Met’s just-opened exhibition, or transport yourself to Europe with “A New Look at Old Masters.” At the Guggenheim, let Vasily Kandinsky’s avant-garde explosions of color warm the creative cockles of your heart. Or, explore the modernist French gardens of André and Paul Vera at the Cooper Hewitt. All these institutions have inspiring gift shops; from prints to textiles, you can treat your Manhattan apartment to a touch of autumnal spice.
A Warming Drink
Few things warm the belly and soul like a steaming hot beverage in fall. Both the 96th Street Brownstones and The Parkview are a short distance from Bluestone Lane. Here, you can sip a chai latte or a silky hot chocolate while watching the Museum Mile crowds go by. As for residents of 330 East 85th Street, you’re a mere seven minutes from Variety Coffee Roasters, where you can pair hot coffee with a scrummy slice of pumpkin bread.
No Place Like Home
When you’re done with your autumnal excursions, continue the seasonal festivities at your Upper East Side rental. At the 96th Street Brownstones, a toasty fireplace and a soothing bath await. At 330 East 85th Street, you’ll find recently refitted kitchens, where you can cook up a warming stew. Start living your best autumnal life today. Find your dream Upper East Side no-fee rental.
