Spending Time Outdoors With Algin
The moment the sun peeks out from behind the clouds, you get the urge to leave your apartment, and make the most of the summer rays. With Algin Management properties, you needn’t travel far — in fact, you don’t even need to leave your own address.
Hitting the Court (and Courtyard) at Sessanta
The no-fee apartments at Sessanta, on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, boast an abundance of high-end amenities. There’s an indoor pool, media lounge, business center, and more. As for al fresco amenities, Sessanta has something rather special up its sleeve. For starters, it serves up a private tennis court, with U.S. Open finishes. Is there a better way to revel in the clement weather than playing a set or two with a good friend? The court is also a perfect spot for a laid-back rendezvous with business clients. Even if they’re not impressed with your forehand, they can’t fail to be wowed by the tennis court’s landscaping, surrounded on all sides by a verdant English-style garden. Speaking of which, Sessanta also has its very own courtyard garden. Here, in the shade of the mature trees — and ensconced in perennial plants — you can recline on a park-style bench with a book, enjoying a very exclusive kind of tranquility.
Taking Outdoor Amenities to the Next Level at ARO
Like Sessanta, ARO — the no-fee luxury rental in Midtown West — comes fitted with a wealth of amenities. With its golf simulator, indoor pool, and club room with billiards and table tennis, you are unlikely to get bored, no matter how long you stay. ARO’s outdoor amenities, meanwhile, are next level — quite literally. Ascend to the ARO Sky rooftop for a heated pool with astonishing views over Manhattan. There is also the Sky Club Lounge, a five-star-style area where you can sip coffee in the morning as you watch the sun rise, and savor cocktails in the evening as it dips over NYC’s iconic skyline. Elsewhere, ARO has a garden lounge and a garden terrace. Both of these urban oases are perfect for taking your laptop out during the day, and taking a glass of wine out in the evening.
A Little Further Afield
You needn’t venture much further to discover plenty more places to enjoy the NYC summer. At Sessanta, you’re moments from the waterside lawns of Riverside Park South and Rooftop Frosés at the Empire Rooftop. As for ARO residents, they’re just 10 minutes from the city’s ultimate green space: Central Park.
Make the most of this summer by renting a luxurious home with exclusive outdoor amenities. Speak to the Algin Management team today.

This Summer, Treat Yourself to Manhattan’s Finest Gelato__ Read article
This Summer, Treat Yourself to Manhattan’s Finest Gelato
Among the many summertime pleasures New Yorkers indulge in each year, few are more satisfying than stopping by a local gelato spot for a refreshing cup of rich Italian ice cream. From classic flavors like pistachio and hazelnut to modern twists including key lime and coconut, there’s an endless world of tastes to explore. This summer, take a tour of Manhattan’s finest gelato purveyors around the city, all of which are located within a short distance of the many no-fee NYC apartments available from Algin Management.
If there’s one name associated with New York City gelato, it’s Amorino. Founded by a pair of childhood friends in Paris in the early 2000s, Amorino expanded its footprint to Manhattan over a decade ago, and since opening its flagship store here, the chain has grown to include three locations spread across the island. Whether you’re looking for a refreshing scoop of handcrafted gelato on the Upper West Side, bustling Midtown West, or in hip Greenwich Village, Amorino has you covered with a nearby cafe serving high-quality ice cream alongside crepes, macarons, and much more.
Residents of Hilary Gardens in Greenwich Village are spoiled for gelato options, thanks to Figo – il Gelato Italiano, a new shop serving a mix of classic and new flavors sure to keep Villagers coming back for more. Built on the legacy of the classic shop Mo Gelato, Figo prides itself on crafting the finest ice cream with natural ingredients, producing flavors ranging from classics to experimental scoops, which include passion fruit, ricotta cheese and chocolate chips, and dark cherry. The shop also serves a variety of other Italian treats, like handmade cannoli, sumptuous tiramisu, and homemade cheesecake, all washed down with drinks from their beverage menu.
With the rest of the city covered, we haven’t forgotten the Upper East Side, which is home to a variety of luxury Algin Management properties as well as Anita Gelato. Founded by Mama Anita and her son, Anita Gelato brings real Italian excellence to every scoop, along with a wide-ranging menu of other Mediterranean delicacies, including fresh fruit and jams. Residents of classic buildings like The Pearl and The Parkview can spend summer evenings tasting any of the more than 150 ice cream varieties and flavors available from Anita.
So, if you’re ready to secure your next Manhattan home and explore the world of Italian ice cream, reach out to Algin Management to schedule a tour today!

Neighborhood Spotlight: Midtown West__ Read article
Neighborhood Spotlight: Midtown West
Life at ARO’s no-fee apartments in Manhattan is rooted in the heart of the city. Its central location means you are just steps from some of New York’s most exciting attractions, while its proximity to major subway lines means everything desirable about the city becomes an extension of your neighborhood. Every weekend, you can create a new itinerary of places you have yet to explore, or you might find that some of the most thrilling destinations in and around Midtown West are the kinds of places you’ll feel grateful to revisit again and again.
If you’re seeking some quality time in the great outdoors, Central Park is just moments away and offers a diverse range of activities. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the park to witness the breathtaking beauty of blooming flowers this spring. Alternatively, you could be among the first to experience the new pickleball court at Wollman Rink. There’s no shortage of options to choose from!
Some people fly to New York from all over the world just to see a Broadway show. When you live this close to the Great White Way, you can become a theater connoisseur—catching shows as soon as they open and seeing the shows that bear repeat viewings as often as you like. Experience a Hamilton matinee one week and Funny Girl the next Saturday night for a career-changing performance from Lea Michele the New York Times called “stupendous.” Make a true night of it with a pre- or post-theater dinner at Joe Allen, where you can feast on American classics like pot roast while rubbing elbows with the theater crowd who have made the restaurant a Broadway institution.
Another legendary NYC restaurant where you might want to become a regular is Le Bernardin, a restaurant that repeatedly gathers the highest culinary honors and lives up to them year after year, as Pete Wells observed in a recent four-star review for the New York Times. Here, each dish is an adventure unto itself, like the tuna tartare with sea urchin toast or the steamed halibut with truffled sunchoke puree. If you’re eager to indulge in Italian cuisine, Bad Roman is worth considering, but securing a reservation may be challenging
A stroll through Times Square at night can become a weekly ritual rather than a fleeting tourist experience, and unique shops like Japanese bookstore Kinokuniya will become
your go-to place to discover the latest manga, anime, books, and Japanese stationery. Also nearby are Madame Tussauds and SPYSCAPE, an immersive experience where, among other activities, you can literally enter the world of a Batman comic and take on a Gotham City you never thought you could see this close. Hop on the A/C train for a quick jaunt to Chelsea to see what’s being showcased in one of the world’s most influential neighborhoods or walk over to the MoMa and immerse yourself in the Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit. While the incomparable amenity package at the no-fee NYC apartments at ARO makes staying in a great option, it also provides the perfect way to recharge for your next neighborhood adventure–and beyond. Get in touch with our leasing team today to discover how you can make Midtown West your home today.
