With nice weather ahead, it’s time to get the most out of ARO’s idyllic location in Midtown West. Residents can access the building’s rooftop where breathtaking city views and myriad architectural styles await. Additionally, residents have the benefit of being just a short distance away from Central Park, as well as their pick of nearby restaurants offering no-contact delivery during this time.
Take in the fresh air of spring with some time on ARO’s rooftop. Many of the iconic buildings of Manhattan’s skyline are visible, including the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower. To the south, catch a glimpse of the light as it shimmers off the Hudson or New York Harbor beyond. Enjoy the sunrise over the river or the colors of sunset as the cares of the day melt away, all in the quiet comfort of this rooftop retreat.
Keep in shape and keep your spirits light with a jaunt through nearby Central Park. With more than 840 acres to explore, there are numerous options for exercise or relaxation while still practicing good social-distancing habits. Bask in the sunshine and vibrancy of the Sheep Meadow, wander the woods of the Ramble, or take a stroll on any one of 58 miles of pathways. With spring in full tilt, much of the park’s flora is in bloom, creating a spectacular feast for the eyes.
Many excellent restaurants continue to offer no-contact delivery. Eat in with style with the finest Tuscan cuisine from Nocello. The doors may be closed, but they’re still serving delicate and delicious plates of Ravioli Nocello with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and walnuts. Treat yourself to a taste of Greece with savory Revithada (chickpea stew) from Loi Estiatorio, made from chickpeas, onions, dill, lemon, and olive oil. Carry out a signature New York Strip Steak finished with butter from Del Frisco’s or enjoy a delivery of Pozharsky made from the plumpest breaded chicken cutlet and served with mashed potatoes and a mushroom gravy at Russian Samovar.
Although your favorite neighborhood boutiques and shops are currently closed, most are still available to assist shoppers in multiple ways. Many are set up with web shopping options, while others allow call-in orders, including Shishi Boutique and its wide selection of unique fashions or Magpie’s interesting collection of stationery and gifts. To browse and buy, simply head to a store’s website or Facebook page to find the latest info. If you’re still having trouble finding a way to shop, just give the store a call, and they’ll be happy to hear from you. Show your support for the local community and pick up something nice for yourself in the process.
