The Stratford- 1385 York Ave, New York, NY 10021

The Stratford_Glenwood.jpg

While a lot of Glenwood properties do have pools (which is amazing) the Stratford is one of the only ones to host it outdoors!  We know, a game-changer.

Price Range:

1 Bed $3,500 - $4,500
2 Bed $5,000 - $6,500
3 Bed $8,000 - $12,500

Adams Tower.jpg

If the stability and charm of the Upper East Side are what you are seeking, look no further than Adam's tower.  The property's great value and spacious designs are ideal for young professionals or families.  And look at that floaty, it's practically inviting you in.

Price Range:

1 Bed $3,500 - $4,500
2 Bed $5,000 - $6,500
3 Bed $8,000 - $12,500

Mercedes House- 550 West 54th Street, New York, NY, 10019

Mercedes House.png

The Mercedes club describes themselves as "the feel of a full-service resort within the comforts of your home.  Make it your destination of choice with a book and a drink once temperatures rise".... we're in!  P.S. If you prefer to do your swimming indoors, they have one of those too...because one is obviously not enough.   Their indoor pool is 25-meters and is heated to a temperature that "optimizes performance and comfort".  Cool!

Price Range:

Studio $2,500 - $3,300
1 Bed $3,500 - $4,500
2 Bed $5,000 - $6,500

Kips Bay/Murray Hill - Manhattan

300 East 34th Street, New York, NY, 10016


300 E 34th st_kibel.jpg

This neighborhood might not have the most glamorous reputation, but this plush residence does provide sophisticated interiors with a host of rewarding lifestyle amenities, including this pool and sundeck!

Price Range:

Studio $2,500 - $3,300
1 Bed $3,500 - $4,500
2 Bed $5,000 - $6,500

Greenwich Village - Manhattan

Hilary Gardens- 300 Mercer Street, New York, NY, 10003


Hilary Gardens.jpg

This building is great for many reasons, one of them being that you are a 5-minute walk from at least 4 different neighborhoods at any given time.... but to be honest, look at the pool, do you really need to leave?  Also, side-note, the views from the pool are spectacular, you can see both the Freedom Tower AND the Empire State Building.  How about that for a little slice of paradise? 

Price Range:

Studio $3,300+
1 Bed $4,500+
2 Bed $6,500+

Battery Park City - Manhattan

Gateway Plaza- 345 South End Avenue, New York, NY, 10280


Gateway Plaza_Lefrak.jpg

So let's be clear here about two important distinctions, 1) Gateway is not just a building but an entire complex... this isn't a problem we just thought you should know.  2) The pool is not technically on the roof, but when it is 100 degrees out and you need to cool down, do you really care?  Plus, the pool is RIGHT on the water, can't beat that.

Price Range:

Studio $2,500 - $3,300
1 Bed $3,500 - $4,500
2 Bed $5,000 - $6,500
3 Bed $8,000 - $12,500+

Financial District/Seaport - Manhattan

180 Water Street, New York, NY, 10038

180 Water St- Metro Loft.png

Gotta give it to them, the marketing on this is spectacular.  1) Let's all agree that's a sick picture.  2) Check this out from their website: "The saying 'Do a 180' suggests rethinking the way things have previously been done - and 180 Water does just that, with attention to every possible detail"... and honestly, we believe every word.

Price Range:

Studio $2,500 - $3,300
1 Bed $3,500 - $4,500
2 Bed $5,000 - $6,500
3 Bed $8,000 - $12,500+

Williamsburg - Brooklyn

1N4th-1 North 4th Place, Brooklyn, NY, 11249

1N4th.png

So obviously the first thing we noticed here is that its right on the water... are you noticing a theme here?  Well, this was obviously done by design (on their part) because after a quick look at their website we found that they are built farther out over the east river than surrounding buildings.  In case that isn't enough, they also have an outdoor movie screen right on their sundeck.

Price Range:

Studio $2,500 - $3,300
1 Bed $3,500 - $4,500
2 Bed $5,000 - $6,500
3 Bed $8,000 - $12,500+

568 Union Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11211


568 Union.jpg

Ok, well give it to you, this might not seem as glamorous as the rest of the guests on this page, and frankly, it does resemble the community pool at our grandparent's retirement community in Boca, BUT after all, this is Williamsburg people, where a pool is mostly unheard of, so let's not get greedy! A pool, is still a pool, is still a pool, and we will take what we can get!

Price Range:

Studio $2,000 - $2,500
1 Bed $2,500 - $3,500
2 Bed $3,500 - $5,000

Sheepshead Bay - Brooklyn

Avalon Brooklyn Bay- 1501 Voorhies Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11235

Avalon Bay.jpg

Not only does this picture transport us to Miami without the anxiety of having to go to La Guardia (otherwise known as Hell On Earth), but the price point for this luxury building is reasonable, and the amenities included make it so you never have to leave... and you probably won't want too either.

Price Range:

Studio $2,000 - $2,500
1 Bed $2,500 - $3,500
2 Bed $3,500 - $5,000
3 Bed $5,000 - $8,000

Long Island City - Queens

QLIC-  41-42 24th Street, Long Island City, NY, 11101

QLIC.jpg

I mean do we really even need to mention those views overlooking the Manhattan Skyline!  But it doesn't stop there, this rooftop pool comes complete with cabanas, an open-air theater, and an outdoor barbecue.

Price Range:

1 Bed $2,500 - $3,500
2 Bed $3,500 - $5,000
3 Bed $5,000 - $8,000

ARC- 30-02 39th Avenue, Long Island City, NY, 11101

I mean, WOAH!  ARC boasts the largest lifestyle-driven amenity program in New York City,  offering a culture of amenities that can be integrated into any lifestyle.  Additionally, they have a robust amenity programming – from fitness classes to wine tastings – and services and events, the ARC community has got its residents covered.  Brb, we're moving.

Price Range:

Studio $2,500 - $3,300
1 Bed $3,500 - $4,500
2 Bed $5,000 - $6,500
