The Avery NY condominium luxury homes are located in the Upper West Side with a view of the Manhattan skyline and the Hudson River. In the front yard, you’ll find the span of Riverside Park and a river walk. In the back yard, you’ll find restaurants, convenient shopping, parking, and The Lincoln Center 1 block east. The Upper West Side neighborhood provides the most unobstructed river view as well as an abundance of greenery and landscaping, combining urban living with luxorious city escape.
The nearest subway is the 1,2, and 3 line at 72nd Street and Broadway. Crosstown Buslines are located at 57th, 66th, and 72nd streets.
The nearest gyms are the one in the building, the Crunch on 64th and West End Avenue, the Equinox in Columbus Circle, and the New York Sports Club on 61st and 9th. Again, fitness-oriented folks will also appreciate the West Side Highway’s 6 mile-long bike and jogging path just one avenue away.
The Avery is nestled between Trump Place and what is soon to be The Rushmore, also being developed by EXTELL. The Avery shares a block with one of the famous ABC studios, as well as an Ethan Allen and a public parking garage. There is a Gristedes food market across the street and daycares scattering the area as well. So, your kitchen and your children can be taken care of in this neighborhood.
Many investors would agree that virtually anywhere on the island of Manhattan is a great investment, generally speaking, as people continue to migrate to the City That Never Sleeps. But when you get down to it, there are definitely pros and cons to each “neighborhood” on the island. The Avery has great investment potential simply because of the incredible unobstructed view of the Hudson River. Waterfront views are always a popular and good choice when looking for real estate. According to the space and laws, no structure can be built to ever compromise The Avery view. The Upper West Side is always appreciating in value as a whole, and the space that The Avery is nestled in proves no exception.
The Bottom Line:
This is a great family-friendly luxury condo in a family-oriented neighborhood.
