Location

The Upper East Side is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan, thanks to its quiet, tree-lined streets and gorgeous architecture. Once a haven for the wealthy and upper class folks, it’s become a place that also suits the upwardly mobile. The neighborhood has drawn bars, eateries and shopping destinations onto its streets, so you’ll never lack for something to do.

Why You Would Want to Live Here

Most of the apartments at The Blake back onto quiet blocks; all are recently renovated with sleek, modern finishes and top of the line appliances and fixtures. The building is located in between Second and Third Avenues on the Upper East Side, which is a location beloved for its convenience, prestige and charm. The Blake doesn’t offer a ton of amenities, but it does offer the basics: concierge, doorman, gym and resident’s lounge. Best of all, the building is only thirteen floors, so you’ll feel as though you live in a building with community, not a place where no one knows your name.
