New York City Hall

New York City Hall

The Opulence of Lower Manhattan

Driving in Lower Manhattan has always been an amusing activity, especially in low trafficked streets. One can grab a sumptuous Ham Burger at Mickey Dee’s take away and just find arresting freshness of this city. The most striking view that you would love to see is the sudden cross of this grand opulence built in French Renaissance that just makes everyone look back from their windows. I am talking about the New York City Hall. Built between Broadway and Park Row, this gigantic attraction has always been a proud possession of New York City. The present building (replaced in the year 1700) has a very fascinating record. Government officials (then) held a major competition for the design, the winners were French and American architects called Joseph Francois Mangin and John McComb.

The most eminent part of the City hall is not just the intermingling of architectural style, but also the city hall park. Sprawling across the hall, this park is fertile green space, and is marvelously maintained, something too hard to stumble on in this busy branch of Manhattan. The innermost pathway of the park leads along with shrubbery enclosed by benches. At the entrance of the enclosed park is a tablet with a brief portrayal of the park’s history.

Tourists come here for its inimitable blend of the American Georgian style of construction mostly found in the exterior, with interior touches of French Renaissance, added by the influence of Joseph Francois. You will notice an airy rotunda, as you ascend a majestic marble flight of stairs. On the second floor, Corinthian columns bear the dome.

Considering the meager distance from East Village Apartments where you take pleasure in an economical holiday in holiday flats and houses, at Manhattan rentals it’s hard to defy this aesthetic distinction. Enjoy the ride!

Last minute stay, success!!

This apartment worked great for a quick business trip to NYC. We stayed in the Sol suite. Even though I was booking day of, Sudha got back to me within 10 minutes with a special deal and left great instructions for our late check-in (including a recommendation for amazing thai food up the street). The location was perfect – we had meetings in Brooklyn and Midtown and there were multiple subway lines just blocks away. Also the East Village provides for a lot of great night-life and restaurants once we wrapped meetings and our apartment was less than 10 minutes walking from both East Village and Soho. Despite there being an awesome Irish bar across the street, our apartment was perfectly quiet. The water pressure in the shower was amazing and there is a full washer/drier & full kitchen- which if we had a longer stay would have been very helpful. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet spot in the middle of one of New York’s trendiest neighborhoods. Thanks for the great stay, Sudha! Looking forward to returning.
