Lexington House - 141 East 56th Street
It’s a good thing the gym is included in the rent because with P.J. Clarke’s a block away, you’ll need to jump on the bike to work off their world famous German hash browns and top rated burger.
I love this building. I don’t know who thought of the arched built-in bookshelves, but they are a fantastic touch. This art deco influenced rental property features sunken living rooms, windowed kitchens and spacious layouts. Of course you get your 24 hour doorman, stainless steel kitchens and laundry in the building too.
If what you are after is pre-war elegance with modern amenities, then definitely consider Lexington House as one of Midtown’s best options. A great comp for this would be Oxford House located at 333 East 39th or 210 East 68 ST.
As always, give me a holler before heading over so I can give you the latest info on what’s going on at Lexington House.

About Midtown East
Midtown East stretches from 42nd to 59th Street on the East side of Manhattan. Trump World Tower dominates the skyline, but Midtown East also has its share of classic brownstones and post-war buildings. Many iconic New York landmarks can be found here, including Grand Central Station, The Chrysler Building (my favorite building in New York!) You will also find an abundance of classic New York steakhouses including such classics as Sparks, The Palm, Bobby Vans, Michael Jordan’s and Jack’s-just to name a few. World class shopping, easy access to Central Park and Rockefeller Center make Midtown East a perennial favorite with many New Yorkers.
