Even the most die-hard, fast-walking and fast-tweeting Manhattanite needs a little respite from Gotham’s unique brand of grit and glam. An end-of-the-day retreat that mixes the outdoorsy with the urban, with simple pleasures and sophisticated touches.
Sound dreamy? Check out 515 East 72, which is having an open house this Sunday 1-3 p.m.
The 41-story Upper East Side condominium on 515 East 72nd Street offers one- to -four bedroom units from $779,500 to $4.075 million. The 329-unit building boasts the largest on-premises private park in New York City, with 20,000 square feet of greenery 2 stories above the street.
The half-acre park includes an outdoor lounge, yoga sanctuary and children’s play area. If the weather is less than ideal, residents can take a dip in the 56-foot indoor heated swimming pool, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the courtyard. The fitness center includes sauna and steam rooms, a basketball/squash court and a rock-climbing wall.
For a good dose of pampering, there’s also a spa, lounge/game room, children’s playroom/art studio, a cafe and weekly classes that range from poetry to kickboxing. A concierge and on-site parking round out the amenities.
Interior pictures and exterior shots below — we’d call them “drool-worthy,” but that seems too gauche for a classy place like this.
Peek here for more details and mark your calendars for Sunday afternoon: we figure swimming in that pool has got to be way cleaner than going to McCarren.
