Kips Bay Court - 520 Second Avenue

Kips Bay Court 520 Second Avenue

I have to say it’s easy living in here. There is a brand new health club called Hype where you can finish up your workout and get a relaxing massage. You get on-site parking and a mix of older and newer tenants. Totonno’s pizzeria is downstairs, which Mr. Zagat calls “perhaps the finest pizzeria in New York.” You’ll definitely feel your shoulders relax as you walk past the swaying maples right off of Second Ave.

These eight towers go from 12 to 27 stories high. They recently renovated all of the common space, so it has that new, clean look in the lobby and hallways. Another nice touch is that there are only 6 apartments per floor, so you can be assured of a little extra peace and quiet. The grounds themselves offer beautiful landscaping and two children’s play grounds.

Each building has a lobby attendant with concierge services, two elevators, and a laundry room on the ground floor with large windows. The 24 hour security patrol and video security system, and 24 hour maintenance and live-in superintendent further provide a sense of safety and well being. With an on-site management office, on-site parking (available for rent), and neighborhood stores just steps away on the avenue, Kips Bay Court has all of the conveniences that make city living comfortable, easy and fun.

The apartments themselves come in studio, one, two and three bedroom layouts. They also allow pressurized walls so-grab your roommates and get yourself some great share apartments. Many of these apartments have balconies and offer stunning river and city views. As a matter of fact, I have never seen a dark apartment here. The kitchens feature GE Profile appliances including dishwashers and new gas ranges. I loved the glass cabinets and marble breakfast bars. Closet space is never a problem-so bring all your shoes, ladies!
