The plaza is highlighted by a large sculpture, considerable seating and handsome food stands. Apartments at The Cameo feature renovated kitchens, updated baths and spacious layouts with hardwood floors and large windows.

The building boasts video security, a full service garage, 24-hour concierge and attended lobby, a rooftop terrace, a laundry room, garden, fitness center and self-controlled heating and cooling systems throughout.


The Cameo is close to the Theatre District’s mini-renaissance highlighted by the New York Times Building and the Hearst Tower. There is excellent public transportation with cross-town buses and subways. In addition to being only four blocks north of Restaurant Row, the Cameo is a short walk from the many excellent restaurants on Ninth Avenue. It’s also just a short walk from Port Authority and a few minutes on the train to Penn Station, so getting out of the city is a cinch.

Why You Would Want to Live Here

The Cameo offers updated, large apartments in a great Clinton location. For those who work in upper Midtown, The Cameo is a short walk from work, which is great for people who want to live close to their office but not on top of it. Clinton is an up and coming neighborhood that seems to add a new bar, boutique or eatery every minute, so you’ll never lack for something to do. The building itself offers a doorman, concierge and all the regular amenities (fitness center, garden, rooftop deck) that make a luxury building luxurious. At just $42/square foot, it’s a great deal for those looking for a Clinton apartment.
