The Lyric

255 West 94th Street   |   Upper West Side

The many cultural attractions of the Upper West Side have long been central to the neighborhood's enduring appeal. But while a great many apartments for rent on the Upper West Side offer access to the neighborhood's distinctively New York charm, only The Lyric can say that it truly encompasses an Upper West Side landmark. The Lyric, a new-construction rental apartment with a stunning suite of amenities, elegant apartments for rent, and a peerless location, also shares an address with Symphony Space, an iconic UWS cultural institution. That combination of luxury, style and prime location give The Lyric an appeal that places it above other no-fee rentals on the Upper West Side.

The corner of 95th Street and Broadway has been a cultural center on the Upper West Side for decades, thanks to Symphony Space and the former Thalia Theater (now the Leonard Nimoy Theater), but The Lyric which inhabits the air space above these UWS icons allows those looking for apartments for rent on the Upper West Side to enjoy an ultra-contemporary luxury Manhattan living at a famous address. The Lyric offers all the amenities discerning NYC dwellers expect from a luxury rental listing the sun-drenched state-of-the-art health and fitness center features modern cardio and strength equipment; the children's playroom is well-stocked with toys, books, games and other fun stuff; the business and internet lounge functions as a contemporary, wired office space. The landscaped rooftop sun terrace is a special highlight, thanks to stunning city views and plenty of seating, from lounge chairs to cafe-style tables. Most unique of all is access to the ultra-luxe Related Personal Assistant service, which is available at each of Related's luxury rental buildings in Manhattan. Related Personal Assistants work like, well, personal assistants they specialize in getting hard-to-get reservations and tickets, but can also swing any errand and find tenants just the right housekeepers, massage therapists, dog-walkers... in short, whoever or whatever renters might be too busy to find for themselves. Related's on-site resident service specialists are available to field any and all questions and requests, while the company's electronic payment system makes paying rent even on Visa or American Express easier than it has ever been. The expected 24-hour doorman, concierge and valet service are also available, as is copious storage space for bicycles. Membership in the Related network also affords The Lyric's residents access to exclusive holiday parties, barbecues and off-site celebrations ranging from wine tastings to gallery previews.

Of course, with some of the Manhattan's most interesting cultural goings-on happening right downstairs at Symphony Space, innumerable fine restaurants and terrific shopping just outside the door and nearby mass-transit options, crosstown bus service is a block away, and it's just steps to the subway with 1, 2, and 3 train service at 96th putting the rest of the city within reach, renters at The Lyric don't need to look hard to find exciting things to do. And, of course, the elegant rental residences at The Lyric make a quiet night in an equally appealing option.
