If you’ve never visited the High Line in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, you might want to book a trip. The unique elevated park, which has been nicknamed “Manhattan’s Park in the Sky,” presents a one-of-a-kind peek from 10th Avenue to beyond Midtown, with an amazing panorama of sky-filled views stretching across the Hudson River.
The New York Times featured the area this month in its Home & Garden section, noting that expanded development in the High Line is bringing even more excitement to this urban space.
The Times describes the section of High Line around 23rd Street as “a more intimate, domestic cityscape,” which features an architectural thrill in the form of newly constructed glass and steel towers—apartment buildings that “rise up and enclose the space on either side.”
Among these special living spaces, you’ll find Ten23, which opened a few steps down the High Line in January. Furnished Quarters is the exclusive corporate housing provider of Ten23’s twelve-story, 111-unit building. The residence is designed with spacious open floor plans and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide stunning views of the Empire State Building, the New York Times Building, and the Hudson River.
It’s no secret why we find the High Line area the right place to be at the right time. The Times notes that “the cutting-edge architecture, the bleachers and lawn, and colorful metal ‘Urban Rattle’ sculpture by the artist Charlie Hewitt, installed in May in the courtyard of Ten23, have all made this section of the High Line a popular gathering spot.”
In addition to being a destination in its own right by virtue of what’s right outside the windows, Ten23’s features and amenities keep visitors equally enthralled. The ceramic tile and hardwood floor interiors include:
·a fully equipped kitchen
·plush bedroom and bath linens
·luxury furnishings and housewares
·washer and dryer
·wireless Internet, Cable TV, DVD player
·a fitness center
·outdoor barbeque grill and picnic area
