Algin Management’s Retail Spaces
Retail helps define a neighborhood, and a neighborhood creates the community that comes in and out of a shop’s doors. New Yorkers sometimes say that it’s magically lucky when a business explodes into an instant neighborhood-defining favorite. In fact, there is an intricate network of factors, including architecture, foot traffic, and nearby dining and cultural attractions, that can make for entrepreneurial magic. The opportunities at Algin Management check all the boxes on the list of what makes retail tick, not least of which is a building’s prime location in one of the world’s most exciting neighborhoods in the world’s most exciting city. Here is a look at some of the retail and office spaces with a special Algin alchemy that can send business possibilities soaring.
The Upper East Side often feels like the center of the world, and Algin’s 330 East 85 Street, a streamlined white brick building with studio, 1-, and 2-bedroom no-fee Manhattan apartments, is right in the heart of it, sitting on the path between Museum Mile and the Second Avenue Subway line. People from all over the city will pass it on their way to take in a blockbuster painting show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or on their way back from receiving top healthcare at one of the many top-rated healthcare facilities in the area. With local favorites like Schaller’s Stube Sausage Bar and Bondurants just around the corner and Cafe D’Alsace just up the avenue, it’s also a magnet for local traffic, seamlessly woven into the life of the neighborhood. Establishing a business in an elegant Upper East Side residential building means that you are instantly integrated into the community, and you will reach both a local and an international clientele. First-floor and lower-level retail and office spaces with flexible layouts mean you can be a part of the design so that it speaks to your brand identity and optimizes operations. Other Algin retail locations on the Upper East Side include 96th Street Brownstones, The Parkview, and The Pearl.
The 65 stories of no-fee NYC apartments at ARO are themselves a fantastic resource, housing a potential clientele that doesn’t have to leave the building to take advantage of what its prime Midtown West retail space has to offer. Meanwhile, Hilary Gardens boasts an address in the heart of Greenwich Village, combining the vibrant Downtown culture scene with proximity to the entire population at New York University, Laurence Towers, and 530 Second Ave share a neighborhood with internationally renowned NYC destinations like Kalustyans and Dover Street Market.
The spaces in these select Algin properties provide the chance to change the map of retail in iconic Manhattan neighborhoods, where newcomers are set to become the new shopping and dining destinations sought out by locals and visitors alike.

WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE THE UPPER WEST SIDE__ Read article
WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE THE UPPER WEST SIDE
New York City’s five boroughs may occasionally engage in some interborough rivalries—not to mention the Subway Series and its loyal partisans—with each staking a claim to preeminence. And within each borough, there are, of course, distinctive neighborhoods, each with its own personality and history. However, when it comes time to find a place to call one’s home in the city, few neighborhoods can offer up the special blend of culture, proximity to parks and greenery, and restaurants like the Upper West Side. Living in one of Algin Management’s no-fee apartments in NYC’s Upper West Side means you’re just walking distance from a host of some of New York’s finest and most iconic destinations.
Firstly, when it comes to fine dining, the Upper West Side is home to an embarrassment of
riches. Maison Pickle, a classic eatery with a stylish decor, features true bistro comfort food and American classics—with a selection of signature dishes like French dip sandwiches, moules and steak frites, salads, seafood, desserts, and a delightful menu of cocktails, spirits, wine, and beer. Sarabeth’s may be known for its premium jams, but New Yorkers have long appreciated this beloved institute for its homestyle cooking and one of the best brunches in the city. Meanwhile, Lincoln Ristorante serves authentic Italian cuisine with ingredients sourced from local sources, including the Upper West Side’s own Tucker Square Greenmarket.
The Upper West Side is also home to some of New York’s most storied cultural institutions. The Museum of Modern Art, with its impressive and wide-sweeping collections of sculptures, paintings, and drawings, among other works, is widely regarded as one of the most important museums of modern art in the world. While known by a younger generation of filmgoers from the blockbuster A Night at the Museum with actor Ben Stiller, the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) has been steadily attracting visitors for over a century. Today, the museum houses more than 34 million specimens of mammals, rocks, meteorites, and plants. In addition to its permanent collection, the AMNH has an ongoing rotation of events—like its current special exhibitions on sharks, our solar system, and “dazzling diamonds”—sure to pique interest among visitors of all ages.
Of course, the Upper West Side is ideally located between Riverside Park and Central Park—the green, beating heart of the city and a short walk away from Algin Management’s UWS rentals.
