The Tennis Courts at Sessanta
People flock to New York City not only to witness its world-class sporting events, arts, and culture but also to become a part of those communities. For tennis lovers, the no-fee Manhattan apartments at Sessanta offer the best of both spectator and participant sports, thanks to their location in the city where the country’s most important tennis competition takes place. And with its very own outdoor tennis court, everyone from the most ardent fans to beginners at the game can learn the sport from the inside out.
Located on the Upper West Side, Sessanta gives you easy access to all of the U.S. Open matches at Flushing Meadows, as well as the chance for your own court time where you can play in tandem with your — and the city’s — U.S. Open buzz. This year’s tournament, which runs from Aug. 28 through Sept. 10, will determine whether reigning champions Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Świątek will hang on to their titles.
In addition to these top tennis stars, there is a whole roster of players the world will be watching on these signature hard courts. Of Tallon Griekspoor, Tennis Majors has this to say: “Remember the name.” They base their excitement on his 72% win rate and his ranking of No. 25 in the live singles race. Another player to watch is New York’s own Jessica Pegula, who made the quarterfinals at Wimbledon — as well as those at all four majors — this year. If you’re planning to watch the action in person, make the experience as spectacular as the play with tickets for The Overlook or the 1968 Room, where you’ll pair courtside seats with fine dining and drinking.
Feeling inspired to hone your backhand yet? If so, you can do a tennis deep dive with your exclusive access to Sessanta’s court. Surrounded by the lush green of an English garden, and perched on an outdoor terrace, you can meet your perfect tennis match on this court without ever having to leave your building. Buddy up with a neighbor or local friend, or even someone in your household. Get equipped at the Wilson store at The Shops at Columbus Circle, where you can find the Pro Staff or the Clash rackets, or shop for the perfect outfit to wear on the court.
Whether you’re a tennis fan or a tennis player, Sessanta provides an opportunity to delve deeply into the sport with its very own tennis court. It’s exactly the kind of access that can bring new passions to your Upper West Side life. Limited inventory remains – contact our team today to learn how you can start calling Sessanta home.

Algin’s Guide to the Best Aperol Spritz in Greenwich Village
There’s nothing like a refreshing drink to put you in the perfect mood for the end of the Summer season. For us at Hilary Gardens, an Aperol spritz has become the ultimate symbol of summer chill. This zesty, bubbly cocktail is just right for those hot days when you want to relax, unwind, and take it easy.
Getting to Know the Aperol Spritz
Currently, this Italian charmer is having a moment. Its secret? A combo of Aperol — a lively apéritif with a touch of bitter orange flavor — mixed with Prosecco and a splash of soda water. Pour the ingredients over ice, garnish with a slice of orange, and you’ve got a sunny, sparkling treat that’ll cool you down in style. For an even easier way to get a taste of this summery favorite, we suggest three singular spots in Greenwich Village, all of which are just moments from the Algin Management no-fee apartments in NYC at Hilary Gardens. Read on to learn about them.
Dante: Enjoying an Aperol With a View
Dante, a snug Italian cafe on MacDougal Street, knows how to do an Aperol spritz justice. Plus, it has ample outdoor seating. It’s the kind of place where you can kick back, soak up the atmosphere of this picturesque Village street, and sip on a cocktail that strikes the right balance of bitter to sweet. Dante proudly presents a curated menu of modern Italian delicacies, an array of globally admired cocktails, and a bar experience recognized for its excellence.
Buvette: Homey and Cool
Next up is Buvette, a charming French bistro tucked away on the corner of Bleecker and Grove Street. It has a warm, inviting vibe and offers a perfect Aperol spritz that’ll wake up your taste buds. Whether you fancy a morning espresso to kick-start your day, a casual lunch to catch up with a cherished friend, or a midday cocktail at their inviting bar, Buvette has you covered.
Bar Pisellino: A Hidden Nook for Aperol Lovers
Finally, let’s pay a visit to Bar Pisellino, a low-key spot a stone’s throw from Christopher Park near West Fourth Street. Bar Pisellino’s focus is on the laudable art of Italian imbibing, with a repertoire that showcases an eclectic mix of wines, cocktails, vermouth, a curated selection of amari, and, of course, a lovely Aperol spritz.
