Midtown West will add thousands of new apartments
New York City.
What I love about the West Side of Manhattan is the access to the Hudson River Park and the views of the water. I often run or walk with Jason & Radar all the way down to the Village or towards Riverside Park. Of course, with developers set to add a record new units of housing, the views of the sky and water were more abundant when we first moved to 37th and 10 Ave. It was also much quieter with a lot less people. There wasn’t even a decent super market or a place to dine out in the 30s west of 9 Ave. That has and is changing every day.
The recent opening of the Hudson Yards Park, phase 1, on 36th to 34 th Street (Between 10 & 11 Aves) and the September opening of the 7 train at 34/11 will bring much needed access to public transportation and open space. https://ny.curbed.com/tags/7-train-extension
With the rise of the 10 Hudson Yards skyscraper and the multi construction of new rental buildings: the Sky, the new Silverstein tower at 41 and 11th and another one taking away our favorite diner, Market, developers have begun to create an entire new neighborhood, with thousands of residential rental units and condos. New coffee shops, restaurants, bars and Brooklyn Fare (a high quality supermarket) have opened throughout Hudson Yards and along the West Side into Hell’s Kitchen. Gotham West Market, one of our favorite places to go, further north on 11 Ave, offers a variety of food and drinks. Gotham West Market is a fun fancier food court to socialize and work while eating a fattening fried chicken egg and cheese with a blue bottle coffee. https://gothamwestmarket.com
New Residential towers bringing thousands of new apartments

And the luxury resort largest New York City apartment building, Sky, will open up with large pools, yoga room, beautiful lobby and full amenities. Rents for one-bedrooms will start around $4100. https://ny.curbed.com/archives/2015/06/12/here_are_the_outdoor_pools_at_nycs_largest_rental_building.php#more
Hudson Yards/Hell’s Kitchen is about to get a lot more crowded. I recently noticed the Hudson Yards/Hell’s Kitchen Alliance workers cleaning the streets, which is very welcomed in a once unattended area.
I can feel our apartment building shake as the new construction booms. I am excited to welcome tons of new New Yorkers. It is really cool to see the mega-project of Hudson Yards and the West Side neighborhood of new housing being created and hoping it will make an already vibrant area of New York City even more fun and pleasant to live in.
