The best and nothing but the best, excellence in all its senses, in its amenities, location, services, etc.So here are five tips you should take into account and expect when renting or why not, buying these luxury high quality apartments in Manhattan:

1- High-Quality amenities-Find your place to relax.

A good building must include the necessary amenities so as to keep their hosts happy! An Olympic swimming pool, Playroom , Sauna and a complete Fitness Room for sure will make you feel in paradise and that it´s worth its value. An Spa could be a matter of health depending on your job because relaxing is the most healthy routine you can adopt. An SPA in the building can save you time and money because you will not need to go an SPA out there.

2. Spectacular views!-Feel in Heaven.

Yes! views must be spectacular, not just nice views of the city. You are paying to get the best, then expect the best. Try moving to a high floor as you are going to appreciate more its views, Windows should be very big so as to take advantage of the sun during the day and appreciate the city lights during the night. It´s eco-friendly and a money saver at same time. Put your slippers on, lay back on your couch and enjoy its wonderful view!!

3. Fine furniture-High quality inside your apartment.

You are searching for the best apartment in Manhattan, so the apartment you are moving to must offer the best building materials. Personally I love apartments with wood as they give a very homelike style and looks really nice! You can find beautiful designer decorated apartments with a unique style and don´t expect less than that, searched for the best? Get the best for your money because they will cash you the best!

4. Superb Location-Rock it baby!

If you are going to pay for one of the best apartments in Manhattan, take into account it is located at an exclusive place. Don´t pay more if your apartment is not excellently well located. Remember this is the place you are going to live every day, so the fact that it´s near the most fashionable places is not a minor thing. Now put on your best dress darling, that, as Bryan Adams says: “There will never be another tonight!”

5. Excellent service- Feel like a Queen in Queens!

Not only location, amenities and Fine furniture is important, excellent service in your building is a must. A helpful concierge, efficient chambermaids and nice charming people willing to help you with your bags, places to visit, etc is something to take into account. Maybe not all building apartments count with personnel working in it, but if you do have the chance to move to one of this exclusive apartments, definitely do it!

Manhattan is one of the crowded places in New York City. In the 1970s,as in the 1870s, certain tribes of Manhattanites staked their identities on their positions relative to uptown and downtown line.

Thinking about Rental apartments near Grand Central… alone or with roommates?

rental apartments near grand central

Pros and cons about sharing a 3 bedroom apartment with friends.

rental apartments near grand central
Ok, so when I have to start writing about this kind of articles I really get excited cause I know many women will feel identified with my experience, most of all teenagers who are, at this right moment, thinking about moving to an apartment with friends….well not sure if after they read this article they´ll still be willing to move, but…anyway…sorry if I spoiled your dream!

 

Moving to an apartment with friends near Grand Central or any other cool neighborhood could result in an excellent experience or in a complete disaster…believe me…not even comparable to the worst tsunami!

 

A few years ago, when I was young (still I am, of course), I was eager to move out of my parent´s house, but, as by that time I didn´t have a steady job, I couldn´t afford an apartment myself.  That´s when I decided it would be a great idea rent an apartment with two of my best friends who were also desirous of getting rid of their parents (yes, we were bad girls!)

 

So it was on July 9,th , ….and here you´ll ask yourself: “how the hell did she remember the date, and I´ll answer: “It was  midsummer with an absolutely unbearable heat, that believe, you wouldn´t forget either!” So, again, it was on July 9th that we moved to this three bedroom, beautiful apartment in Manhattan.

Wooww!! That felt sooo good! free girls, independent, pretty and young, ha! What else! But…every dream ends and soon problems started to show up…even in Grand Central area.

 

Head-desk- Yes, that´s how I felt every so often when I argued with my girls ( yes I call them that way lovingly) and I thought, if this happens while living with friends can´t imagine how it would be like living with a guy! Ughhh, I´d better stay single!

Here are some of the cons about sharing your apartment with friends:

cons-apartment-near-grand-central-with-roomates

  1. No privacy-AT ALL

You´ll never feel it´s YOUR home while living with other people, even if they are your fabulous best friends of your childhood, you will have to get used to walk around in underwear…. (Yes! After this I bet boys will start using their binoculars more often! ) and forget about watching your favorite tv show (fights over the remote control will be a constant!)

 

  1. Disorder!!!- Save me from this Tsunamiiiii!!!!!

 

You are going to sort your clothes, neat and tidy, and someone is going to mess it up right away! You are going to find, towels, cigarette butts and pieces of paper all over the place! Now I´m thinking if this is something that usually happens or is it that I have such bad luck that this things only happen to me??? Hmmm.

 

  1. Food will disappear from the fridge- Abracadabra

 

What??!! Where´s my delicious piece of cake I just bought with my last dollar!!! ( silence…..) Ok, nobody was! I should blame the dog then, which we do not owe! It´s not like you are going to starve if you live with friends but make sure to hide …YES HIDE!!! Your at least, favorite food in a very, listen to me, VERY SAFE PLACE. Specially if you are on an specific and strange kind of diet (Atkins, vegan, paleo ) and you are only have permission to eat that kind of foods the 24/7 mini markets at the corner will never offer.

 

Ok, are you panicking and taking Prozac after what you read ??? Relax dude!! Here are the best things you will enjoy while moving with your friends, so keep walking:

Leave tragedy behind and enjoy the following pros!
pros-apartment-near-grand-central-with-roomates

 

  • You will achieve your best experiences while living with your friends- Yes! “FRIENDS WILL BE FRIENDS”

 

There will be countless situations that will make you lough, cry, enjoy and realize your friends are the most in this world! So spend time with them and always value friendship above all….snif snif…I´m already crying….

 

  • Share expenses- SAVE YOUR MONEY!

 

Just think that if it wasn´t because of your friends you´d probably never think about moving yourself to that penthouse for rent in Manhattan, ever in your life! Now you have your own space, located in the city of your dreams and best of all……..you will still have money left!!! Your budget divided by 3 makes it not impossible at all, so take this ride and enjoy its trip it to the fullest!!

  • Feel safe! UNION MAKE FORCE!

So in a huge fantastic city like Manhattan, you too know, bad things happen, so living with friends will make you feel safe and sound, because, come on! you know that 3 woman together are more fearsome than the worst villain. So stick together and make the world stumble!

 

IMHO this are some of the things that would probably happen if you decide to move to an apartment with your friends.To me it was worth it!! You only live once so if you have the chance just take it and good luck!

West Side Pyramid and Other Current-Age Pyramids

west side pyramid
The West Side Pyramid in Manhattan is actually an apartments building.

As an architect I always felt attracted to shapes and modern buildings so it´s my pleasure to introduce you to the fabulous world of the most exclusive and awesome pyramid shape buildings around the world!

Oh! Wait a minute! So you thought Pyramids exist only in Egypt?

Nooo way!! After you read this article you´ll be so impressed about men´s power to create you will definitely want to visit or, why not, live in this huge edifications and feel like a real Pharaoh! So let´s start choosing some of my favorites and…OMG just take a look at this one! By far my favorite!

1. The Great Pyramid of Manhattan (or West side pyramid)- absolutely marvelous

I wonder why you never thought about finding a huge Pyramid in West Side  the middle of the Big Apple? Decades ago that would be nearly impossible, but…NYC always surprises us and makes everything possible!

Located in VIA 57West and a creation of the most talented architects worldwide , Bjarke Ingels, is this fabulous Pyramid Shape building that rises 467ft and is 35 stories tall!. Its artist (cause to me architects are also superb artists) prefer to call this building a Tetrahedron, although everyone knows it as a pyramid and the best of all you don´t need to be a Pharaoh to lay inside this “Pyramid”

TBH yes, average rent here´s still high but come on! Make your best effort and enjoy your stay, as studio apartments are yet affordable!

2.The Louvre Pyramid-to me one of the seven wonders of the world!

This is probably the most popular Pyramid known worldwide. There´s no doubt timeless Geometry is here to stay and that many architects had focused on creating this kind of buildings with pyramid shapes.

The Louvre Pyramid, located in Paris, is not only visited by millions of tourists around the world, but hides a treasure of the most famous paintings of renowned artists of all times. Ok I´m sounding kind of formal here, I´m taking out the architect in me!  Although no one is YET living at this building, maybe you get lucky and rent a room! Of course, only if you are a celebrity 😀

3. The Pyramid house- Get ready to turn heads!

This is undoubtedly one of my favorites! Love watching this picture of a house with pyramid shape! Isn´t it awesome? I find it so original, I´m planning to move to a place like this one! (not that I can afford it, but ok, that´s another problem)

This unique house was build my Mexican architect Juan Carlos Ramos and it’s a comfy three story home with two bedrooms, library, studio, bathroom with pool and all the etc´s possible! Ready to move in?? Okkk don´t forget about me! DAE?

4. Luxur Hotel-“What happens in Vegas…stays in Vegas”

Life doesn´t stop surprising me and that´s so cool! Just look at this pyramid-shape Hotel build. Nothing more and nothing less than in sin city!

This 30-story hotel owned and operated by MGM Resorts International is the best place EVER, to have fun!
Wouldn´t you love to spend at least, just ONE night here? Oh come on! This place is absolutely fabulous!! Invite your friends in and don´t worry babe! What happens in Vegas…stays in Vegas!! Yeah!!

Hope you had fun and at the same time got informed after reading my wonderful articles, ha! Remember I´m an architect and I´m here to serve you so… if you have any questions…AMA!!
See you at my next blog! 😉

New York City Dream Apartments and Buildings: Courtney House NY

Dream apartment picture
Dream apartment picture
NYC apartments that are some form of dream.

When I first arrived to NYC I haven’t had the slightest idea which place I could stay at. I knew I couldn’t afford a luxury hotel but at the same time I do want to find a nice, familiar place to spend the rest of my days at this amazing city. For the first week my friend, Carla, offered me to stay at her beautiful apartment to which I agree very happily, not until she told me she owed a cat…and I´m allergic to cats!

Oh my God…how stressful it was. My best friend was offering me with all her heart that beautiful place to stay at and I was afraid a massive allergic reaction would take me straight away to the hospital! Fortunately, nothing of that happened but…just in case… after a few days I started looking for another place to spend my stay.

Carla recommend for me to stay at Courtney House, she told me it was a beautiful place where I would feel really comfortable and enjoy its incredible services.
I went to visit this place and what I saw really amazed me, that same day I made my reservation and moved to Courtney House. (official website is here http://www.courtneyhouseny.com/ in case you want to check it out)

I´m going to name you 5 things I really loved from this place and that made my stay unforgettable:

1. Excellent service-staff at your disposal!

Nice, helpful people will surround you all the time, asking you weather if you need something or what can they do to make your stay pleasant. At Courtney House you will find a very familiar place to stay, it´s cozy and comfortable, so don´t doubt to choose this place when travelling to NYC.

 

2. Excellent location-Live in the middle of it all!

If you stay at Courtney House distances will be no stress to you at all as you will be living in the middle of it all! Imagine having the chance to access WALKING to different shops, fancy restaurants and malls, isn´t it great??? So take the chance!

 

3. Parking garage-Keep your car safe and sound!

One of the most common problems in a big City like New York is that it´s very hard to find a place to park your car and if you do you´ll probably get a traffic ticket, that, believe me, you won´t be able to afford.

At Courtney House your beloved car will sleep inside and you will relax knowing you can sleep without having nightmares of monstrous traffic tickets!

 

4. 24 hour concierge-That will be your sentinel!

Feeling safe and knowing you can count on someone if anything unplanned happens or if you are not feeling very well is awesome!! At Courtney House you will be able to count 24/7 with its Concierge, a very kind and helpful man who will always try to work things out for you the best as possible!!

 

5. Great value for money! – Pay less get more.

Why pay more if you can stay at a wonderful place with the services of a 5 star hotel, paying less! Courtney House is very accessible and yet it will offer you their best service ever. So come on! stop wasting your money and stay at this beautiful and friendly unique Hotel one of the best NYC buildings. You will love it!

 

So here is my humble opinion about Courtney House and hope after reading this article you make your mind and decide to stay at this wonderful place.

Feel free to comment or share this post! I´ll see you at my next article! 😀

4 Uses for Your 2nd Bedroom When You Live Alone in a 2 Bedroom Apartment

two bedroom luxury apartments nyc


If you are planning to move to a two-bedroom apartment in New York City and you live alone, it could yet be a great idea to turn the 2nd bedroom in something else than a forgotten stuff-storage area! Here some ideas you may love.

My friend Patty used to live with her sister Anna in a beautiful two Room apartment in NYC until Anna decided to move for work to another state. Not knowing what to do in such a big place, Patty thought about moving to a one bedroom studio and asked me for advice.

What I told her definitely made her mind and motivated her to stay where she was taking advantage of the fact of having a second room available. A week later her sis left and finding herself in a kind of “crisis” I spoke to her by the phone and told her:

“Patty, you know I love you, but…you are making a world out of this! Who doesn´t love to live in the center of New York City with a two bedroom apartment which fortunately you can afford!” She listened to me carefully and then I added: “Now I´m going to give you for reasons why I think you should stay where you are and then tell me what you think”:

1. Use the second bedroom as a walking closet area.

Yes! What woman does not love to have hundreds of different clothes and shoes and find no place where to keep them? Using this room will save you lots of space and your new “wardrobe” will look great with everything in sight!

2. Use that second room as your private office.

You are an executive worker, you work 24/7 with your cellphone and PC, you need you own space to keep everything need and tidy. You´ll feel great knowing you can use that space for work!

3. Create your own personal library.

I know you love reading so all those books you keep in the warehouse garage take them to that second bedroom and build a beautiful library where you will be able to read each book and relax as you always wanted.

4. And last but not least, create a beautiful playroom for your niece.

Your brother has a beautiful 2-year-old child and I heard you more than once protest saying you don´t have space to play with your little niece, so come on! Here´s your chance to build a place specially designed for her! Paint the room in pink, buy toys and decorate it as a real princess “castle”. I´m sure after that she´ll be so fascinated she´ll love you even more!! And will want to go and visit you more often….and your brother will definitely be grateful.

After she heard my reasons she automatically answered back and cried: “OH YOU ARE SO RIGHT!! NO WONDER YOU ARE MY BEST FRIEND!” 😉

She hasn´t decided yet which of the four tips will choose but at least she is sure of not moving to another place.

I hope this testimony was useful for you and come on! encourage yourself to transform your second bedroom and to make the most of it according to your needs, I´m sure you will not regret it! 🙂
