Spending Time Outdoors this Fall with Algin
New York City’s parks are not only respites from the bustle of the city but entire worlds unto themselves—oases where the cultural and social excitement of the city meets the natural world. A fundamental aspect of the lifestyle envisioned in Algin’s no-fee apartments in Manhattan is the transformative influence of having a park nearby. In many of these buildings, the changing of seasons, especially the enchanting fall, can alter the very fabric of your daily experiences. It provides you with precious moments to connect with nature, savor the unique activities, and revel in the distinctive allure that these green spaces imbue upon the heart of New York City.
Residents of Algin’s Upper East Side, Upper West Side, and Midtown West properties will have easy access to Central Park, arguably one of the most famous parks in the world, where the possibilities for playing, biking, boating, picnicking, and relaxing are endless. Most importantly, residents are just minutes away from experiencing the mesmerizing fall foliage right in the heart of the city. With the park so close, you can build your biking or running routine along the park loop, and you can easily dip into the park for a quick weekday picnic or a more extravagant weekend feast on one of its many lush lawns. Attractions like Loeb Boathouse, the Delacorte Theater, the Central Park Zoo, and the Shakespeare Garden make the park feel like an extension of all the culture and dining the city has to offer—but in a place where you can experience it all under a canopy of trees.
Residents of Algin’s Midtown West properties will find Bryant Park just a short walk away. Nestled behind the main research branch of the New York Public Library, Bryant Park has the architecture of that building as an accent to its aesthetic, which includes long tree-lined avenues surrounding an open space where you can watch movies in the summer, experience the fall foliage and ice skate in winter. Dining kiosks mean you can grab a delicious lunch without having to carry it over to the park, and an abundance of seating gives the park a Parisian feel.
If you live at Hilary Gardens in Greenwich Village, Washington Square Park is just a short walk away. With its monumental arch and deep roots in New York history, this is one of the places in the city where the seamless connection between the park and the neighborhood works in an endless loop. Enjoy performers and musicians of all kinds while sitting near the famous fountain, visit the playground or the dog run, play chess with the locals at the chess tables, or just grab a falafel from Mamoun’s and bring it to a bench surrounded by the vibrant colors of autumn leaves, and you have yourself an afternoon worthy of a Frank O’Hara poem.
It’s all part of how Algin Management brings you the best of the city, both indoors and out. Contact our team today.
