Location

River Place is located in the heart of Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen/Clinton neighborhood. It’s just a few blocks away from both Penn Station and Port Authority. The building is also close to Times Square, Bryant Park and a bevy of subway lines, making it an ideal location. Hell’s Kitchen is one of the up and coming neighborhoods in Manhattan thanks to its small-town feel in the big city. It’s chock full of hip bars, eateries and boutiques, and it’s getting better and better every day. Best of all, however, is the fact that River Place is literally right on the water – you’ll have the best water views around, thanks to oversized windows and a high-rise building that feels as though you’re towering on top of the Hudson.

Why You Would Want to Live Here

You might not possess the power to walk on water, but at River Place, you can live on it. The residences in this building are nothing spectacular, but the amenities, especially for those who love sports and exercising, are unbeatable. The location, given the views, is pretty spectacular – especially for under $60/square foot. It’s rare to find a building in Manhattan that offers basketball courts, tennis courts and water views – all in one place. It’s not heaven, it’s River Place – and it’s a great building if you’re looking for affordable luxury in a Clinton apartment.
