The person who said “you can’t beat Mother Nature” must not have had private subway access. After shoveling out from the last blizzard, New Yorkers can look forward a forecast filled with snow and its attendant inconvenience and drudgery. But 20 Pine The Collection has a solution — a private secured subway entrance to the 2,3,4,5, J and M trains. Residents need only take the elevator a few floors down to the sub-cellar level, where they can gain a snow free access to a passage that leads to the Chase Plaza Concourse. When returning home, 20 Pine residents can access the sub-cellar level through a private underground walkway via secure key card. The private walkway leads right to elevator banks that whisk residents to their homes.
A transportation option that was once the private perk of Presidents is not the only amenity at 20 Pine sure to keep the winter blues away. With 30,000 square feet of amenity spaces, one need not be bothered to leave the building and expose himself to the elements. A 20 Pine resident who finds his flight to Bermuda grounded by weather conditions can console himself with 20 Pine’s Full Swing ™ Golf Simulator. He can play a virtual round of golf anywhere from St. Andrews to Pebble Beach as he imagines the sounds of ocean waves hitting the beach, and he doesn’t have to worry about sitting on the tarmac at LaGuardia for hours upon his return.
A full service spa, Complete Body, located on the basement level is a haven for residents, offering everything from Swedish deep tissue massages to microdermabrasion facials. “Our most popular Spa Escape package during the winter months is called Euphoria, it’s a scrub that exfoliates and nourishes the skin followed by a hydrating wrap, facial and massage,” says Complete Body’s Aleca Borsuck, noting that it’s not uncommon for residents to come down for treatments in their bathrobes.
20 Pine also offers a 60-foot swimming pool located in a converted bank vault that dates back to when the building was Chase Manhattan Bank headquarters. Residents can engage in yoga, Pilates and cardio kickboxing in 20 Pine’s state-of-the-art fitness center. Other facilities to keep resident entertained include the Billiards Room with 2 regulation sized tables and four lounges, providing venues to meet, listen to music, play games or read.
For the residents who live on 20 Pine’s upper floors, a dedicated elevator accesses the Concierge Lounge, where a continental breakfast is served daily, and where you’ll find Quintessentially, a concierge service regarded as one of the most elite in the world. Quintessentially routinely secures reservations at restaurants in town and abroad, exclusive invitations to screenings of soon-to-be-released films or access to private lounges, the Sundance Film Festival and V.I.P passes to New York City’s Fashion Week.
