Bergen County Rentals for Newcomers

Advice on Bergen County Rentals for Newcomers

Advice on Bergen County Rentals for NewcomersIf you have never been to Bergen County, New Jersey before, here’s a great article from jerseydigs.com, on Bergen County’s city of Englewood.

The word “Palisades” refers to the line of cliffs in northeastern New Jersey and southeastern New York extending along the west bank of the lower Hudson River. It is a stretch that is about 15 miles long, and 300–500 feet high. The Palisades were the site of 18 documented duels and probably many unrecorded ones in the years 1798–1845. The most famous duel was between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, which took place in 1804. On the north side of the Palisades is the New Jersey section of the Palisades Interstate Park, encompassing about 2,500 acres along the Hudson River from Fort Lee to the New Jersey state line.

Englewood, in Bergen County, is situated just a few miles west of the scenic Palisades Interstate Park and is filled with a variety of residential offerings, from apartments to townhouses and Colonials to massive mansions set on large lots, according to the article. Englewood is home to many Bergen County apartments including Towne Centre of Englewood and VIVIAN.

The Towne Centre of Englewood is unique in that the new apartments are built around a retail shopping center in an amazing downtown neighborhood. Towne Centre at Englewood, located at 20 West Palisade Avenue, offers luxury one, two, and three bedroom apartments featuring a game room, movie theater with cushy recliners and a 24-hour fitness center with complimentary weekly yoga and exercise classes.

The ultra-stylish VIVIAN Luxury Rentals are located at 75 Sterling Boulevard in Englewood and offers 195 luxury residential apartments. VIVIAN proudly presents different amenities, such as The Deck, a landscaped outdoor lounge with fire pit, relaxing outdoor sitting, and swimming pool, the Japanese-inspired experience of Kumano Springs and Spa, and on-site electric car charging stations.

Not far from Englewood, in Fort Lee are other luxury Bergen County rentals at The Modern – 800 Park Avenue, definitely worth investigating. Check out what luxury units are available to lease and The Modern’s fine list of amenities.

New Eco Residences Coming to Fifth Avenue in Nomad

Published by:

260 Fifth Avenue will be the base of the new eco residences in NomadIt looks like EOS, at 100 West 31st street won’t be the only amazing apartments in Nomad for much longer. Three new constructions are progressing in the neighborhood. Two along Fifth Avenue and the third on East 31st Street, just 2 blocks from EOS.

Back in May 2017, we learned from 6sqft of a new 1,001 ft tall super skinny skyscraper being developed by Meganom, a firm based in Moscow. The original plans called for a 928-foot tower with 54 floors, but that seems to have changed. The architect has disclosed the new eco residences in Nomad at 262 Fifth Avenue “will include several ‘firsts’ in terms of its design and environmental sustainability features”. The sleek tower will be comprised of aluminum and glass exterior walls with floor-to-ceiling windows on the buildings North and South facing sides. The roof top will have an observation deck from where residents can view the New York skyline.

Down the street at 281 Fifth Avenue, Rafael Viñoly is designing a 52 story condo tower, for developers Victor Group and Lendlease, that will accommodate 130 luxury condos averaging 1,500 square feet each. Viñoly is an Uruguayan architect with offices in 4 countries (2 in the United States, 2 in England, 1 in the United Arab Emirates, and 1 in Argentina). Viñoly’s 1st New York City design can be seen at 432 Park Avenue.

Meanwhile, Morris Adjmi is working with the Elkstein Development Group on a 469-foot tall condominium complex at 30 East 31st Street. The site was the former home of the Madison Avenue Baptist Church which was demolished in 2015. The design of the 40 story luxury building will pay homage to its predecessor with diagrid pattern near the top resembling the vaulted ceilings you see in cathedrals. Expected to be completed in 2018, 30e31 will have a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom condos and penthouses totaling just 41 units.

With all of this new construction on Fifth Avenue and 31st Street, I am wondering how residents in the area are getting along.

Suffolk County Apartments Financed by Affordable Housing Program

Published by:

Suffolk County Apartments for Rent in RiverheadThe town of Riverhead, Suffolk County, New York, was created in 1792, and rests on the mouth of the Peconic River, from which it derives its name. Riverhead is situated on the north shore of Long Island and is home to three separate beaches which are open year round – Iron Pier, Wading River and Reeves Beach – making real estate in Long Island a wise location in Riverhead.

Last month, Community Development Corporation of Long Island (CDCLI) and Conifer Realty, LLC, hosted a groundbreaking event for 45 mixed-income apartments to be constructed on Main Street in the downtown area in Riverhead to be named Peconic Crossing. Peconic Crossing is financed through the Affordable Housing Fund program to support the preservation or development of rental housing lost as a result of Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene, and/or Tropical Storm Lee, with a preference for households displaced by Superstorm Sandy.

Artists will also be attracted, as this development will bring an artistic element and fresh energy due to the offering of gallery spaces and preference given to local artists. Riverhead has been progressive and welcoming to artists over the last several years, and it shows by the growing number of public art displays, the success of the performing arts venues, and the approval of Peconic Crossing. Not only will Peconic Crossing further encourage artists to engage in the community, it will also ensure housing costs remain affordable.

Peconic Crossing is receiving federal and state low income housing tax credits, CDBG Disaster Recovery funds through the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery, infrastructure funds through Suffolk County (in the amount of $350,000), REDC funds through Empire State Development, and a grant from New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. CDCLI Funding Corp. is also investing $200,000 into the development.

The new Suffolk County apartments for rent will be spacious energy-efficient, one and two bedroom apartment homes at Peconic Crossing. The 5-story apartment building will include laundry facilities, maintenance and property manager onsite, and a fitness center. And if you can’t wait for Peconic Crossing to be completed, there are always Long Island apartments in Amityville.

 

New York’s Affordable House Program Helps Finance New Apartments for Rent in Suffolk County

Published by:

Finding real estate in Long Island can be tough. Available housing is few and far between, and finding affordable Long Island apartments in Amityville can be even tougher. In Suffolk County, the process of finding housing may be a little easier in the future thanks to a new affordable housing program that will help finance new apartments for rent in the area. A groundbreaking was recently hosted by Conifer Realty, LLC and Community Development Corporation of Long Island for mixed-income apartments that will be created in the downtown area on Main Street. The five story building will have one and two bedroom apartments, all of which will be energy-efficient.

The community has been working for some time on redevelopment efforts and the Peconic Crossing development is one way that the revitalization will happen in Downtown Riverhead. Housing is needed for the workforce, as well as those who were displaced by Superstorm Sandy. $4.55 million has been committed by the Governor of New York’s Office of Storm Recovery via the Affordable Housing Fund program. This money will help to finance the new apartments.

According to Steve Bellone, an executive of Suffolk County, the new housing options for downtown will help to support the local economy, as well as preserve open space, enhancing the quality of life for those involved. Infrastructure funding will go a long way to supporting the growth of affordable housing for the area.

With the addition of the new apartment complex, there will be more Suffolk County apartments for rent in the area. This will help to provide affordable housing for workers in the area, as well as those who were displaced due to natural disasters, and anyone else looking for housing. Overall, the new complex is much-needed, and further helps the redevelopment efforts in this region of New York State.

Bronx Apartment for Rent and Traffic Free Too?

Published by:

bronx apartment for rent in ParkchesterThe 56th Governor of New York State, Andrew M. Cuomo, recently announced a $1.8 billion plan to transform the Sheridan Expressway and Bruckner Boulevard in the Bronx as reported in the New York Post. The project will create more than 4,000 new construction jobs in the South Bronx.
The infrastructure project, which will include pedestrian crossings and will better connect residents to the Bronx River waterfront, will cost an estimated $700 million with a scheduled completion date of 2019. “This is a road construction project and a bridge project larger than anything we have taken on in The Bronx in decades,” Cuomo said at the announcement.
Everyday more and more people are moving to the Bronx. New apartment buildings are constantly under construction. New commercial businesses are finding affordable offices and shops in the Bronx. And this new traffic free plan for Bronx is exactly what is needed to sustain the growth and progress of the Bronx.
New is great but sometimes the stability through time is even better. Consider Parkchester which was built in 1942 and has stood the test of time. Parkchester is composed of 171 four-sided brick buildings, either 8 or 13 stories in height and was designed with aesthetics in mind as evidenced by intricate patterns of brickwork. The development contains 500 terra cotta statuettes and 600 plaques such as bullfighters, animal figurines, soldiers, mermaids and Native American chiefs. Parkchester, the most vibrant and affordable in Bronx NYC rentals, offers reasonably priced apartments that are spacious and airy with windowed kitchens and bathrooms.
The heart of Parkchester lies in the Aileen B. Ryan Oval, formerly called the Metropolitan Oval, where residents relax on benches as they gaze at the water-spouting nymphs in the plaza’s central fountain. Children ride scooters and parents push babies in strollers. There are also art classes, salsa dancing and knitting circles, etc. Supermarkets, clothing stores, restaurants, banks, hair salons, laundromats and a post office are at residents’ doorsteps. The main commercial strip on Metropolitan Avenue has a Starbucks, an Applebee’s restaurant and a Macy’s.
While most new constructions are limited in acreage, Parkchester is laid out over 129 acres with outdoor recreational facilities that include playgrounds, a baseball field and basketball and handball courts.

Homes for Rent in the Long Island Area That You Can Really Call HOME

Published by:

Greybarn Apartments for Rent in Long IslandOne of the most important decisions we make as adults is choosing a place to call home. Whether you are looking for a permanent place to raise a family, or something a little more short term, the place you pick should reflect your lifestyle and be a comfortable refuge from your hectic day.

The dream situation is to live in a place where your landlord is transparent. Meaning, the only time you hear from them is when you need them. Have you ever lived in a place where you couldn’t hang a picture on the wall, or painted a room with your favorite color? Having the flexibility to decorate your place with your style is what makes a house a home.

I did some searching, and found a few houses in Suffolk County, NY that, with the right touch, look like they would make a comfortable home.

153 Canal Road, Port Jefferson Station, NY

This 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom, 1,100 square foot single family home has been recently remodeled. It has new carpet in the living room and bedrooms, and new kitchen appliances. There is a patio in the back with a deck and large yard. It is listed as pet-friendly on zillow.com, and is available for $1600 per month.

32 Holiday Blvd, Center Moriches, NY

This 3-bedroom single family home, with 1-1/2 bathrooms, has a full basement with washer and dryer hook-ups. The living space is 1,000 square feet, and the back yard has an enclosed fence to keep your pets safe. I assume, the landlord wouldn’t have a problem with painting. Currently, one bedroom is yellow, and another bedroom is light blue, and the kitchen is green. With a few upgrades to the paint, this house looks like it could be very cozy. The asking price is $2000 per month.

21-39 45th Road, Long Island City, NY

A little more expensive than I would care to pay is a 1,000 square foot 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment in Long Island City. What I like about this one is the fact that I do not have to mow a lawn. The patio has a very small patch of grass that I could maintain with a pair of scissors. The unit has hardwood floors throughout, except for the kitchen which has tile. The living room has a built in shelving unit that looks like a shadow box frame. The location is great, just across the street from Court Square Station, and down the block from the John Murray playground.

10 Greybarn Lane, Amityville, NY

This one is most definitely my favorite. Although, it’s not yet complete, Greybarn has a comfortable vibe to the property. An average 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment is 1200 square feet, and rents for about $2700 per month. For the same price as a single family home, I could have the same amount of space, plus the luxury of having a community centered atmosphere that makes socializing with neighbors easy and fun.

700 Broadway, Amityville, NY

This one seems almost too good to be true. It is a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment for $1450 per month. It has a large living room, with a built in shelf along 2 walls. The complex is called Broad Hollow Gardens. Just off of the living room is a small outdoor space. The pictures I see from Google maps shows a lot of open green space between buildings.

No matter what kind of dwelling you are searching for to call home, the Long Island area has a variety of apartments and homes for rent that would fit anyone’s needs.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous: NJ Residences with Private Terraces

Published by:

Do you remember that old show, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, hosted by Robin Leach? The show aired from 1984 to 1995, and featured the extravagant lifestyles of musicians, actors, athletes, and wealthy business personalities.

Today’s luxury apartments and condos remind me of some of the homes on that show. High rise luxury towers with two- or three-story lobbies lined with marble walls, a doorman, concierge service, valet parking, swimming pool, fitness center, movie screening rooms, game rooms, lounge areas, business centers, playrooms and playgrounds for the kids, and some even have a golf simulator. It’s like living in a mansion with a very large family.

The interior designs show the decorated apartments with stainless steel kitchen appliances, hardwood floors, custom cabinets and counter tops, floor to ceiling windows in the living rooms (with solar shades), oversized windows in the bedrooms, walk-in closets, bathrooms with full size tubs and shower stalls. Some of the apartments have more square footage than I have in my house.

I just wonder how some of the older celebrities would feel about living in a high rise luxury apartment complex. I found a list of celebrities that are either native Jersey City residents or transplanted themselves into the neighborhood after a long successful career in New York. The list is over 150 names long. One of the more famous names on the list is Frank Sinatra, who was living in an apartment at 137 Bergen Ave in Jersey City when his 2 children were born. Willie Banks, a former MLB pitcher was also born in Jersey City.

It is not uncommon for today’s celebrities to live the lifestyle that most people only dream of. However, with the increasing number of high rise residential towers in areas like Manhattan and Jersey City, it is becoming more common for regular people to find affordable luxury NY and NJ residences with private terraces overlooking the Hudson River.

The Bjarke Ingels Guide to High Rise Building Apartment Rentals New York

Published by:

My wife and I were contemplating relocating, and discussing career changes. I have been a production manager in the printing industry for 20 years, and my wife has been an accountant. As our discussions progressed, my wife tells me that before she got her degree, she had studied to be an architect, and maybe she would like to go back to school to get her degree in architecture.

Being the supportive husband, I decided that I would go online and see if I could find some books on architecture that were available to download. If she was serious about going back to school, I thought it would be in her best interest to find out what direction the industry is going.

I came across this guy, Bjarke Ingels, who is only 41, and apparently, is having some major impact in the world of architecture. He is from Copenhagen Denmark, where is firm BIG has a headquarters building. He also has a a full staff in New York City. He designs high rise building, apartment rentals in New York, as well as, a new headquarters for Google and a football stadium for the Washington Redskins. One of his mot recognizable designs is in Midtown Manhattan at 625 West 57th Street, called Via 57 West. It is a pyramid shaped luxury residential complex for which he has won several awards. So, I thought this would be a good example of modern architecture for my wife to get to know.

Mr Ingels has published at least 3 books since 2009. “Yes, is More” published in 2009 is a little more my speed. It was designed in comic book fashion about the evolution of architecture. In 2015, he published 2 books, “Social Infrastructure: New York” and “Hot to Cold: an odyssey of architectural adaptation”. Christian K. Narkiewicz-Laine authored a 145 page book titled “ Bjarke Ingels Architecture” which was published in 2012. There is even a new documentary series on Netflix called “Abstract: The Art of Design” that will feature Mr. Ingles.

I can’t say for sure if these books will help her decide if she wants to pursue a degree in architecture, but it’s interesting to see how one guy with a dream can change the face of an industry.
