How to live in America: apartments in Manhattan, Upper West Side

As part of the architectural tour, Roomble editorsmanaged not only to inspect the famous American buildings, but also to see the interiors of modern housing. Today we will show you an apartment in one of the most prestigious new residential complexes in Manhattan. Right on the banks of the Hudson on Riverside Boulevard, the building of the modern residential complex The Aldyn is located. It is positioned as the most comfortable housing, which has no equal in the whole of New York. The architects tried to satisfy the requirements of future tenants, people who are very demanding and accustomed to comfort in everything. The building has 40 floors and 136 luxury apartments, a huge glass area and ceilings that sometimes reach 9 meters. What can we say about the views of the river or the city center and the Empire State Building. It seems that every inhabitant of the planet, not just New York, dreams of living in such apartments.

Splashing in cool water under the scorching sun is the envy of the whole New York - what could be cooler? Maybe! It is here, in the building of The Aldyn, that the largest sports club in Manhattan, La Palestra, is located, its area reaches 40 thousand square feet. And the club's visitors definitely have something to brag about to their friends: gyms, swimming pools, basketball courts, bowling, squash, yoga and Pilates classes, bowling and even slot machines - and that's not all that can be found in La Palestra. Most of the apartments are offeredexclusively for rental purposes, therefore special attention has been paid to the interiors. As the website of The Aldyn says: "This place will become your home, where you will want to return again and again." The interior of the apartments was created by Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors. Its founders Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch once made sets for Hollywood films, and then suddenly successfully decorated a house in Los Angeles and have been doing interiors since 2002. Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch To one of the apartments, which is now inlooking for a new owner, we managed to get into the Roomble editorial office. Here we have the principles that Roman and Williams follow: eclecticism with a thirst for modernity, but at the same time a complete feeling of a cozy and "living" space. Every thing can and should be used, and in such an interior, residents can relax and feel at home. Everything is exactly as it says on The Aldyn website! A two-story apartment full of air, a living room with glazed windows on two floors, a comfortable dining room for a large family, bedrooms fully adapted for real life, bright, cozy textiles and many lighting scenarios, not counting natural light, which is definitely enough in sunny weather. I wish I could settle here! Related Articles But this is not all that we managed to see in New York! Very soon, expect from us new interesting details and travel photos.

How to live in America: an apartment in Manhattan, on the banks of the Hudson

In New York, we managed to see how those livefor whom the American dream has come true. Let's take a look at these ideal apartments, the future owner of which we already envy. On the Upper West Side, at the intersection of 62 streets and Riverside Boulevard, is one of the most luxurious residential complexes in New York - One Riverside Park. The house has 35 floors, 219 apartments, and its location is simply stunning: residents can admire Manhattan, the serene Hudson or Riverside Park, depending on where their apartment windows face. The complex was built by Goldstein, Hill & West Architects. Since 2009, this architecture firm has been constructing high-rise residential and hotel buildings, shopping and mixed-use complexes, and even took part in the work on the New York subway. In the case of One Riverside Park, the architects chose a simple but sophisticated approach - "from the ground to the sky": the lower floors do not have a large glass area and are made mainly of natural limestone. But the higher, the less it becomes, and the glass is larger, and the upper floors already boast panoramic windows.

For this amount, the future owners will receive 12 living rooms - of which 7 are bedrooms, 9 bathrooms - and a spacious terrace with a private pool. From time to time, those who want to buy elite housing come here, as well as those lucky ones like us, who were allowed to look at the ideal apartment with one eye. Once inside, we found that everything here is already ready to receive the owners. Every little thing, including textiles, decor and lamps, stands in its place, although no one has lived here before. How did it happen? The explanation is simple!In order to profitably present and sell the apartment, the developer negotiates with well-known brands and completely furnishes the apartment with designer furniture, appliances and accessories. Each item appears as an exhibit, as if in a museum, and buyers will be able to better appreciate the scale and convenient layout if they see not bare walls, but real housing. The main thing is that apartments can be bought both with or without furniture, or you can keep only individual items you like. In any case, the interior is thought out to the smallest detail, so the chances that the owners will not want to part with it are quite high. A library with a fireplace, a functional kitchen with state-of-the-art technology, bedrooms ideally equipped for relaxation, and decor that meets all the trends - frankly speaking, you don't want to part with all this.
