In her acclaimed 2010 memoir, Just Kids, NYC music legend Patti Smith wrote, “I was born on Monday. It was a good day to arrive in New York City. No one expected me. Everything awaited me.” That’s how it often feels in New York: like everything is at your fingertips. And for the most part, it’s true. Regardless of what you’re into, you will find it here in varied and vibrant forms. In many ways, One Manhattan Square—and its staggering 100,000 square feet of amenities—reflects the manifold metropolis that surrounds it. Whether it’s fitness, relaxation, entertainment, or some combination, you’ll find it all right here at home.
The Lower East Side condos at One Manhattan Square feature the largest private outdoor garden in the entire city. Spanning over an acre, the area is a sprawling oasis, an exquisite and thoughtfully designed respite from the din of New York. There are nooks dedicated to relaxation, such as the birch garden and the tea pavilion, as well as ping-pong tables, a putting green, fire pits, a herb garden, a Wi-Fi-equipped treehouse, a playground, grilling areas, and an observatory built for stargazing. Crafted by the landscape design legends at West 8, the space represents a refined mix of serene, active, and functional.
Leaning into the active, let’s talk squash. The sport of squash has been growing at a rapid pace in the United States. And with growth comes demand. There are 1.6 million people currently living in Manhattan, which means finding court time can often be an arduous endeavor—not for residents of One Manhattan Square, however, who have access to a private squash court right in the building. Additionally, there’s a 75-foot saltwater pool, a cold plunge pool, a golf simulator, a full basketball court, and a two-lane bowling alley. Aside from the sports—and the water—there are four multiuse fitness areas, cardio and weights rooms, as well as a spin studio, a yoga studio, and a dance studio. It’s hard to overstate the convenience of having a wide array of premiere fitness options right at home. One of the biggest deterrents to going to the gym is the going part—and you don’t have to worry about that here.
The theater in One Manhattan Square is also uniquely impressive. It is large enough to seat 70 people—which is larger than many public theaters in the borough and beyond. Wide, comfy recliners, a large screen, and a massive stage mean that hosting screenings or television events and in-person performances are all on the table. And after the film, or play, or Super Bowl, you can shoot some pool in the billiards room, then head to the wine-tasting room for a nightcap. Thanks to a partnership with Somm Cellars Wine & Spirits, there is bound to be a plethora of available varietals to satisfy your palate. Whether it’s rest and relaxation, fitness, or entertainment, One Manhattan Square has you covered right at home.
