Living With Over The Top Amenities In New York City

June 6th, 2015

When it comes to residential real estate, there is no other like New York.  And for a price, you can every amenity you ever wanted.

Amenities usually come with purchasing one of the newer condo developments in Manhattan. But if for some reason you can’t afford to buy just yet, consider renting and getting those same over-the-top amenities.

Renting with amenities in Manhattan will come at a price but will offer you a basketball court like the one at the Mercedes House (pictured), have indoor and outdoor movie screens, bowl or play Bocce and volleyball, enjoy beautiful decks with fireplaces and barbecue grills, work at home in your business and conference center, use the Internet cafes, lounge in resort type cabanas and more. You’ll never have to leave home because these buildings have full gyms with steam rooms and saunas, yoga and spinning classes and many have swimming pools and running tracks. There are pool tables, party rooms, children’s and teen rooms, courtyards, food courts, coffee shops and grocery stores, spa treatment rooms, sun decks, tennis courts, game rooms, valet parking garages, golf courses, wine cellars, ATMs, maid services, concierges, laundry and cleaners right on the premises, and storage and bike rooms. Some of these rental buildings even offer shuttle services. 

One day you may want to purchase in a Manhattan Condo that has these outrageous amenities, but until then, renting could be the answer. 

While you definitely pay a price for these incredible amenities, it’s a great way to live in Manhattan. It gives you the opportunity to enjoy your home, not leave your home in bad weather, and you can socialize, make friends, network for business … and who knows – you might even meet that special someone without ever having to leave home!
