Algin’s Curated Guide to Walkable NYC Parks
When you live in one of Algin Management’s no-fee rentals, you’re likely never far from a beautiful park. Here are four of the finest green spaces—just a hop, skip, and a jump away from various NYC apartments in the Algin portfolio.
Washington Square Park near Hilary Gardens
Across the road from Hilary Gardens is Washington Square Park—a leafy spot where there’s always something going on. Street entertainers perform for passers-by. Kids and parents cool off near the fountain. Studious chess players consider their next move in the shade of the elms. Pooch owners chat while pets let off steam on the dog runs. Join in with the fun or simply take a stroll along the park’s pathways, pausing to admire the grand Washington Square Arch.
Stuyvesant Square Park near The Liane and The Townsway
This refined park is a fleeting walk from both The Liane and The Townsway—offering respite from NYC’s hustle and bustle with its attractive fountains, English elm trees, and tulip beds in the springtime. It’s a fitting location to delve into a book on NYC’s history; after all, the park is named for Peter Gerard Stuyvesant, cofounder of the New-York Historical Society. Go seek out his statue here, as well as that of composer Antonin Dvorak, who once called this neighborhood home.
Asphalt Green Park near 330 East 85th Street
If you’re looking to rekindle your love of sports—or discover a new sport to fall in love with—Asphalt Green is for you. This wedge of green space boasts soccer and baseball fields, tennis courts, running tracks, swimming pools, and lots more. You can join a league with friends, focus on individual training, or get stuck into a wealth of other activities. Residents of 330 East 85th Street are just a 10-minute walk from these facilities. Or a five-minute jog.
Central Park near Algin Apartments
Covering a staggering 843 acres, it’s little wonder that Central Park neighbors with a number of Algin Management properties. From ARO, you’re less than 15 minutes from the tranquility of Hallett Nature Sanctuary. The apartments at 1476 and 1486 Lexington Avenue are moments from the world-class museums just across from the park, including the Cooper Hewitt and the Jewish Museum. From The Parkview, take Sunday strolls through the serene Conservatory Garden. Go on reinvigorating jogs around the reservoir’s Shuman Running Track from the brownstones on East 96th Street. 461 Central Park West, meanwhile, overlooks Central Park’s Great Hill and its North Woods—bristling with wildlife and ripe for exploration.
