#3 - Two Blue Slip, 41 Blue Slip

No fee rental in Greenpoint

A key component of the Greenpoint Landing development, which Two Blue Slip is a key part of, is the outdoor space and connection to the Greenpoint waterfront, which directly faces the most recent July 4 fireworks show. Apartments enjoy river vistas, and the amenity package includes a Pool Club with airy, landscaped terraces facing the East River.


#4 - Waterside Plaza, 30 Waterside Plaza

No fee rental in Murray Hill

As architecture critic Carter Horsley observes, the stepped and faceted profile of the buildings at Waterside Plaza gives every apartment in the development spectacular views. Its location, beautiful apartments, and abundance of amenities attract a vibrant young crowd to a community rather than a simple complex. In addition to a gym and day spa, Waterside Plaza is home to a gracious esplanade overlooking panoramic East River views.
