Algin Management’s Guide to the Best Florists for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and nothing says “I care about you” more eloquently than a gorgeous flower arrangement from one of the world-class florists in New York City. This year, everything’s coming up roses when you live in one of Algin Management’s no-fee apartments in Manhattan. With Algin, you’ll find yourself in a neighborhood where the best florists offer vibrant flowers in spectacular arrangements to discerning customers.
So, whether you’re trying to make love blossom, looking for a gift for a friend, or simply planning to add a bit of nature and color to your home, here is our selection of a few of the finest petals peddlers in the city to help you.
The tony and sophisticated Gramercy neighborhood is known for its luxe living offerings like the beautiful and spacious The Townsway, with its massive penthouses and extensive terraces that boast unique and charming views. Gramercy is also known for its proximity to Manhattan’s loveliest green spaces, like Madison Square Park and the eponymous Gramercy Park. Bring some of the neighborhood’s signature greenery home by gifting your special someone a rose arrangement from Ode à la Rose, just 10 minutes away. As the name implies, this shop specializes in the classic Valentine’s Day flower, the rose. Their elegant creations are made with a European floral style philosophy — meaning simple, unfussy, and striking.
Upper West Side
Residents of the Upper West Side have an abundance of options when it comes to celebrating Valentine’s Day. Just minutes away from many of Algin’s no-fee apartments available here, you’ll find quaint cafes, intimate restaurants and wine bars, and, of course, flowers! Forget the bodega bouquets this year, and pick up a custom arrangement from Flowers by Special Arrangement. With a large selection of blooms and a staff of skilled floral designers, this shop has been providing Upper West Siders with a dazzling array of flowers for more than four decades. As an area staple, Flowers by Special Arrangement also has a strong commitment to the neighborhood, donating to local events and even designing the landscape of Algin Management’s Sessanta.
The West Village
Those living below 14th Street know that one of the perks of living here is having access to the finest of everything you need, from the amenity-filled residences of Hilary Gardens to the remarkable restaurants to the ultimate in floral design. While visiting the charming streets of this area to get Valentine’s Day gifts, check out Fleurs Bella for some of the city’s most striking floral designs. This artistic studio takes the wildness of nature and pares it down — quite literally — to its essential elements. The arrangements you’ll find here go above and beyond what you will typically see in a shop; they are expressive and ephemeral masterpieces.
