The Metropolis

150 East 44th Street   |   Turtle Bay

In a neighborhood known for its architecture, it takes a lot to stand out. But The Metropolis accomplishes just that, thanks both to its handsome design and the simple fact that few luxury rental apartment buildings anywhere in Manhattan can match The Metropolis when it comes to prime location. Just steps from Grand Central Terminal and neighbors with the Chrysler Building, The Metropolis offers the premier amenities and spacious floor plans savvy NYC dwellers expect from a luxury rental apartment building, as well as the unique opportunity to walk to work. A luxury rental building at the very heart of Manhattan, The Metropolis is home to some of the most desirable luxury rental apartments in Turtle Bay. Also, it is very close to our favorite Manhattan cosmetic dentist - Dr Frederick Stange, whose office is just round the corner.

The apartments for rent at The Metropolis feature a variety of floor plans but offer a consistent and impressive array of condo-quality finishes in each rental apartment. The Metropolis' Gourmet kitchens feature chrome Kohler fixtures, Maytag appliances and granite countertops; The Metropolis' chrome-and-marble windowed bathrooms are equally striking. An exquisite attention to aesthetic detail is evident in every apartment for rent at The Metropolis, and floor-to-ceiling windows in each rental apartment offer stunning city views and copious natural light.

The Metropolis offers all the top-of-the-line amenities common to luxury rental apartment buildings in Turtle Bay, but adds just a little bit extra to each. The expected 24-hour doorman service at The Metropolis is complemented by valet and maid services; the landscaped rooftop sundeck offers unbeatable river-to-river views; the exclusive on-site gym and spa offers massage therapists and a golf driving range. Most impressively of all, The Metropolis offers a central water filtering system that provides residents with bottle-quality water right out of the tap. The Metropolis stands out for its stunning suite of building services, gracious rental apartments and supremely central location, and is one of the finest luxury rental listings in midtown Manhattan.
