Why You Should Choose Murray Hill__ Read article
Why You Should Choose Murray Hill
With a Downtown edge and Uptown glamor, Murray Hill is high on the list of must-live neighborhoods in NYC. And with its food scene, charming architecture, nightlife, and quick-commute location, it’s easy to see why the area is popular with everyone from fashionistas to Wall Street traders. Add to that the amenity-filled, no-fee rentals you’ll find in Murray Park and Laurence Towers, and tree-lined Murray Hill is truly an ideal place to call home. Let’s see why:
Whether you work in Midtown or Downtown, Murray Hill’s location can’t be beaten thanks to easy access to trains, buses, and Citi Bike stations. Want to take the scenic route to work? Just head to the water and hop on the East River Ferry that will have you Downtown in no time.
An easy commute doesn’t just mean less stress during rush hour but more time for enjoying Murray Hill’s singular delights with the important people in your life.
A Foodie’s Paradise
While you could spend the night in at your no-fee Murray Hill rental and cook in your well-equipped kitchen, you’ll be tempted to explore the culinary scene in the area.
Step into the minimal and chic Kajitsu—a Japanese restaurant dedicated to the practice of “shojin,” which places a particular focus on the quality, freshness, and beauty of the food being served. Their menu changes seasonally, but the high caliber of their vegetarian menu stays evergreen.
For a more carnivorous culinary experience, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse gives you a chance to roll up your sleeves and indulge in the most mouthwatering, cuts-like-butter steak you’ve ever had the pleasure to consume. Start off with their crispy crab cakes, then work your way through their porterhouse for two—even if you get it just for yourself.
One of the most pleasant parts of living in Murray Hill is access to some of the city’s best outdoor activities and greenspace. So, pack a cooler, grab a picnic blanket, and get out there and explore. For a kid-friendly afternoon that’s just a few blocks away, Madison Square Park is a tranquil oasis with one of the city’s choicest playgrounds. Enjoy an afternoon in the sun chatting with friends in Bryant Park as you sit on the iconic green bistro chairs dispersed throughout the area. Or grab a drink from the Bryant Park Grill.
Sightseeing in Your Backyard
New Yorkers don’t often get the chance or the time to explore the city’s most famous landmarks. But in Murray Hill, you’re within 15 minutes of some of the biggest ones. Take a ride to the top at
the nearby Empire State Building. Watch the crowds scurry about the magnificent architecture of Grand Central Terminal. Or indulge in a little art deco with a trip to the lobby of the Chrysler Building.
No matter what aspect you enjoy most, Murray Hill gives you a chance to do it all. Contact Algin Management today to find world-class options right in the heart of one of Manhattan’s favorite neighborhoods.

Algin Management’s Best Rooftop & Indoor Pools
Looking to enjoy the remaining weeks of Summer outdoors at the rooftop pool? Or take a dip in one of the best NYC indoor pools as the weather begins to cool? Luckily, Algin Management offers a selection of luxury no-fee apartments in properties across Hell’s Kitchen, Midtown West, and Greenwich Village, each with their own private swimming facilities. Let’s dive in.
Sessanta’s 40-Foot Lap Pool
The jewel in the crown of these stunning luxury apartments on 229 West 60th Street is Sessanta Club*. Here, residents are spoiled with sporting amenities, including a lighted outdoor tennis court, on which to practice your backhand any time of the day or evening, and a sizable state-of-the-art gym. Right now, though, it’s all about the beautiful 40-foot indoor lap pool; a dip in this will immediately refresh and revitalize. Ceiling-height windows overlooking an English-style garden bring the outdoors in… minus the blazing heat.
Hilary Gardens’ Two-Level Sky Deck
Crowning Greenwich Village’s highly desirable apartments at Hilary Gardens is a two-level rooftop sky deck. At 35 stories high, the decks here command incredible views of the New York City skyline, including such icons as One World Trade Center. Get changed in the on-site locker rooms, then dive into the shimmering waters of the pool*. Alternate between bracing dips in the temperature-controlled pool and sunning yourself on one of the pool-side loungers. As the day wears on, change into light evening wear and reemerge with cocktail in hand to admire a glorious Manhattan sunset.
ARO’s Sky Club
Residents of the apartments for rent at ARO have no need for concern. After all, they have exclusive access to the Sky Club*—a rooftop haven featuring a pool, where you can bathe in the crisp waters while enjoying stunning vistas of NYC. Shower down, towel off, and recline on a lounger with a long, tall drink. (Something like a piña colada or mint julep would go down nicely.) ARO also boasts an indoor pool featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and stylish interior design. There’s a sauna, too, but perhaps save that for a month or two from now.

Sessanta: The Upper West Side’s One of a Kind Apartment Building
There are many apartment buildings on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, but there’s only one Sessanta. Residents of these no-fee rentals in NYC live in homes flooded with natural light and have access to their building’s suite of high-end amenities*, all while living within walking distance of Manhattan’s hottest restaurants, cultural institutions, and parks. Keep reading for a breakdown of just what makes these rental homes so special.
The first thing that prospective renters will notice about the homes at Sessanta is the natural light. Warm walnut floors and white walls absorb the sunlight that pours in through oversized windows, giving the interiors a glow that invites residents to bask in the natural light whether they’re brewing their morning cup of coffee or relaxing in their bedroom at dusk. The large windows look out on classic Upper West Side views, including the sweep of the Hudson River and the span of West 60th Street between West End and Amsterdam Avenues. Inside, these studio to three-bedroom homes feature chef’s kitchens equipped with GE Profile appliances and Caesarstone countertops, large baths with spa-style fixtures, and washer/dryers in most residences. With that lighting advantage, top-of-the-line design, and the prewar-style high ceilings, these residences feel like home from the moment residents step inside for the first time.
But it’s the rest of the building that makes living at Sessanta a real treat. Residents have access to a suite of amenities that have been curated to meet everyone’s needs, from recreational to fitness to social. The 3,000-square-foot fitness center contains state-of-the-art machines, including popular Peloton exercise bikes and a host of other cardio and weight-training equipment. Residents who prefer to work up a sweat in the fresh air will be drawn to the building’s outdoor tennis court with US Open finishes, which is set amid a cozy English Garden that transports players and loungers far from the street-level world and occasional honking horns of the Upper West Side. Guests can reduce stress in one of the saunas. And the 40-foot indoor pool is perfect for getting in a few laps before or after work.
Diligent remote-working residents will love the building’s pair of coworking spaces, which include a formal business center, complete with computers and printers, as well as the more relaxed media lounge. The media lounge is also home to a movie-theater-style projector and a pool table for unwinding after a long day of conference calls and spreadsheets.

Algin’s Curated Guide to Walkable NYC Parks__ Read article
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.
A green stroll is never too far away from your Algin home. Contact us to learn more about all the no-fee Manhattan apartments that are currently available for rent.

Algin’s Celebration of Women__ Read article
Algin’s Celebration of Women
March is Women’s History Month, which gives us a chance to reflect on those who have changed our lives personally and transformed the world. Since 1987, March has been a time to highlight innovative, creative, and revolutionary women. Throughout the year, Algin Management seeks to appreciate, commemorate, and amplify the voices of all the fearless women on our team, in our social circles, and in our families.
In fact, the founder of Algin, Albert Ginsberg, was so affected and inspired by the women in his family that he chose to name some of the most enchanting and alluring NYC no-fee rentals buildings in our portfolio after them. An unabashed family man, Ginsberg celebrated his daughters with two apartment buildings, The Liane and Hilary Gardens, and gave their mother’s name to The Pearl. Let’s see why these buildings are notable enough for Ginsberg to honor the most important women in his life.
Gramercy is one of Manhattan’s toniest enclaves with tree-lined streets, easy access to Midtown East, Madison Square Park, and all points Downtown, and, of course, the eponymous Gramercy Park that is the centerpiece of this old-school neighborhood. On quiet 21st Street, The Liane stands out as a convenience-filled respite from the bustle of the city. Here, you’ll find homes with all the amenities you’ll ever need, including state-of-the-art appliances, laundry, a live-in superintendent. Let the elevator whisk you from the immaculately renovated lobby to your studio or one-bedroom home where you can experience the ultimate in Gramercy living.
This soaring high-rise right in the heart of iconic Greenwich Village is one of the city’s most desirable locations. At Hilary Gardens, you have access to the culture and cuisine that Downtown living affords in a modern and well-appointment home. These sun-flooded studios, one- and two-bedroom homes are the perfect place for you and your family to experience it all. But you don’t have to look too far to find fun. Just head to the rooftop sky deck and swim in a heated pool* as you take in truly breathtaking panoramic views of the entire city.
The Pearl towers 23 stories above the Upper East Side, affording residents world-class vistas from their luxury homes in the sky through floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s a lot of shopping and dining to be had on the UES, but with gorgeous hardwood floors, custom kitchens, terraces, and sumptuous bathrooms, you might never want to leave, whether you’re in a one-, two-, or three-bedroom abode.
