Eco-friendly Luxury Apartments in NYC Offer the Convenience of a Smartphone App

Eco-friendly Luxury Apartments in NYC Help do Away with PaperHaving a smartphone has its advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, a smartphone can make life so much easier, but it also leaves a person with very little down time.

With the smartphone, we can do away with things that used to be essential in our everyday lives. Things like a phone book, a newspaper, a road map, and yes, even your check book, are just a few of the simpler things that have gone by the wayside.

Nowadays, from the convenience of your phone, you can call anyone, let your friends know where you are, take pictures, get directions, listen to music, send and receive email, and pay for goods and services.

Say you are looking for green-living luxury apartment rentals in NYC. Open the apartment finder app on your smartphone, type in your desired area, size of unit, and any other amenities you want, and instantly, you have a list of apartments to go see. You can even use your phone’s GPS app to get driving directions.

There is at least one company in New York that offers a smartphone app to their residents in order to pay rent. Rose Associates is trying to make life easier and more convenient for residents of its luxury high-rise Manhattan apartments at 7 West 21st Street. The new app allows the resident to communicate with the building superintendent about maintenance needs, schedule a fitness class, get notified of package arrivals, pay the rent, and more.

The downside to having a smartphone is that you are never really able to get disconnected. Short of leaving your phone at home when you go out or go on vacation, you will always be on the grid. It takes a very disciplined individual to get away from work and not check their email as it comes in on their phone. That comes from personal experience.


How Did Apartments for Rent in Midtown NYC Get Their Names?

EOS apartments for rent in Midtown NYC are named after a Greek goddess

Have you ever wondered how buildings acquired their names? Most of the time, the name of the building is associated with the street address making locating it easier and recognizable. For instance, Rockefeller Center is located at 45 Rockefeller Plaza, New York City, NY.

Other times, their names are derived from the general location of the building. For example, New York has long been known as The Empire State. So it would stand to reason that the tallest building, towering 1,454 feet from ground to tip in New York City from the time it was built in 1931 until 1970, would be named the Empire State Building.

The Dakota Apartments at 1 West 72nd Street were built in 1884, designed by architect Henry J. Hardenbergh, who also designed the Plaza Hotel. According to popular legend, the Dakota was so named because, at the time it was built, the Upper West Side of Manhattan was sparsely inhabited and considered as remote as the Dakota Territory.

Some buildings are named after the owner or their family. Take Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue…obviously this building and the entire chain are named after President Donald J. Trump. However, I don’t think when he named his first tower he knew that one day he would be 45th President of the United States of America.

Another building with a family name is The Vanderbilt located at 235 East 40th Street. Some would think that the residential building was named after denim jeans heiress Gloria Vanderbilt. It’s named after her ancestor Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, and he is considered one of the men who helped build America in the mid 1800’s. The rise and fall of the Vanderbilt family still pervades American historical lore.  The Vanderbilts came from modest beginnings, rose to prominence with the arrival of the railroad and still reside in New York City to this day.

There are new, modern and elegant apartments for rent in Midtown NYC called EOS located at 100 West 31st Street, New York City. EOS is named after the rosy-fingered Greek goddess of dawn. According to Wikipedia, EOS rose each morning from her home at the edge of the Oceanus, and opened the gates of heaven for the Sun to rise.

If you’d like to find out what it’s really like to rise in the morning at EOS, check their website to find out which units are currently available.

Are Three Bedroom Residences New York in Short Supply

Three Bedroom Residences New YorkThe New York Times has an article in the December 23rd online edition in the real estate section about where to find three bedroom residences in New York. At the time of the article, the New York Times “Find a Home” site had 24,783 rentals listed, 3,145 of those had three bedrooms. The article goes on to list the 5 neighborhoods with the most available apartments, and gives the price range for the apartments in each neighborhood. Back in December, the list included The Upper East side (409), The Upper West Side (245), Manhattan Valley (164), East Village (131), and Lincoln Square (111).


Since that list is outdated, and doesn’t help me at all, I thought I would revisit the website and see how much has changed in 2 months. I selected the area of Midtown West, and the result was 1239 rentals. When I narrowed my search down to 3 bedroom options, the list dropped to 126 available rentals. The price range goes from $3500 – $17900.


One of the less expensive units is at 370 West 52nd Street, and is listed as a 3 bedroom, 1 bath for $3500 per month. Looking at the pictures, it looks like its a really old building, and not in the greatest condition.


As I scrolled through the listing, I found a 2 bedroom that says it is convertible to 3 listed by Caliber Associates. The listing didn’t give the exact address, but it was located on 10th Ave. The asking price for this one was $3600 per month, and has a fitness center, 24 hour concierge, swimming pool, laundry facility, and bike storage. That’s more of what I am looking for.


The higher end of the spectrum includes 2 apartments at Via 57 West. The first is a 1,933sqft 3 bedroom, 3 bath for $14,000 per month. The second is a 1,472sqft 3 bedroom, 2 bath apartment for $10,200 per month. So I went directly to the Via 57 West website and found out some additional details. The smaller apartment is on the 21st floor and faces South & West. The larger apartment is on the 26th floor and faces North & West.


After doing the research, I would tend to think that there is not a shortage of 3 bedroom apartments in New York, it’s just a matter of where you want to be and how much you are willing to pay.

The Bronx is Famous for its Diverse Culture


bronx apartments

People all over the world know the Bronx as home of the New York Yankees baseball team, the world-class exhibits at the Bronx Zoo and the free admission on Wednesdays at the New York Botanical Gardens. Tourists travel from all ends of the earth to visit the sites at the Bronx. Others come to live there and make the Bronx their home.


The Bronx: Borough of Diversity

The Bronx, the northern borough of New York City, is a cultural melting pot and the third most densely populated county in the United States. The Bronx has an amazing and rich history, it’s the birthplace of hip hop and, by extension, the dominant youth culture of the entire world. The name “Bronx” originated with Swedish born Jonas Bronck, who established the first settlement in the area as part of the New Netherland colony in 1639. According to a 2013 Census Bureau estimate, 54.6% of the population was of Hispanic or Latino origin, 45.8%  was white, 43.3% was African American, 4.2% Asian, 3.0% American Indian, 0.4% Pacific Islander, and 3.3% of two or more races making the Bronx an extremely diverse cultural borough.


Included in the 3.3% of two or more races is a growing community from Ghana. According to Sarpong,  a dean at a local high school and a promoter of anything that will bring attention to his fellow Ghanaians, “We’re an invisible community. The American mainstream, they simply don’t recognize this culture. This culture needs more spotlight. Ghanaians are so loving, so helpful and kind. They’re just invisible.” It’s a culture with deep religious roots—most émigrés, like most Ghanaians back home, are Christian, but there’s a substantial Muslim population as well—and one that places a premium on education. As a result, many have done well. The highest-status jobs in Ghana are likely doctors and nurses.  Estimates are that two-thirds of Ghanaians in the Bronx are working in the health care field, often beginning as home health aides and working to earn a nursing license.

LGBTQ Bronx Community Happy about Affordable Luxury Apartments for the Elders

apartment for rent in the bronx

apartment for rent in the bronx

So it seems everyone is happy about the possibility of older people finding an apartment for rent in the Bronx and at the same time taking advantage of certain benefits given by the state.

Such is the case of the LGBTQ community (which stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) who showed very pleased with this benefit.


These shiny, happy people think it´s fair for elders have the chance to rent affordable luxury apartments in the Bronx and to use this benefit if they really need to. This will give its tenants tranquility. Knowing that in the worst of the cases they can count with the government.



What is it about? Can you save money if you live in an apartment for rent in the Bronx NY?


The Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption program (known as SCRIE) will freeze rent for tenants over 62 years old who earn less than $50.000/year and for disabled New Yorkers. This way they´ll give the chance to seniors who can´t afford the rent to continue living at their homes without thinking about the possibility of moving. Of course, to apply to this program they must qualify to the conditions mentioned above.


LGBTQ is one of the largest communities in New York and the Bronx isn´t the exception as it offers a wide variety of services specially for clients who identify as LGBT.

Six months ago, the Bronx Community Pride Center closed after his executive director was charged with looting it and, Reyes, a gay Bronx teen said that when that happened, he and his peers felt really upset as they utilized the center for services, support and to find someone to talk to.


So now the community is planning to open another center to serve the borough´s gay and lesbian community. For them what´s most important is to meet the need of the community in this new center.


Since 1996 The Bronx Community Pride Center had offered services from HIV testing to support group and dance classes. Opening a new center will definitely change their lives. Fortunately they have good news about getting more affordable places to live, as Brooklyn and the Bronx will host housing developments aimed at LGBT seniors.


These two housing developments will be available for all seniors who meet certain requirements.  They will have services and Advocacy for LGBT elders centers that will offer support for residents so now they can have their own apartment for rent in Bronx.


The Ingersoll and the Crotona Senior Residences will be the first of their kind in New York, a place where people who identify with LGBT will be happy to find their own place to live and share their lives!
