Two words: Times Square. The center of New York City, and perhaps, the universe; Times Square is a visual spectacle, a hustle and bustle at all times. It features the Great White Way, beloved by theater-goers worldwide, as well as a bevy of shopping and dining options. A variety of forms of public transportation, including buses and trains, as located in Times Square, so transport to other portions of the city is a cinch.

Why You Would Want to Live Here

It’s said that Times Square is the bane of the existence of many “real” New Yorkers, who claim that their New York is nothing like Times Square. This being said, hundreds of thousands of tourists flock to the landmark location every day, and you couldn’t ask for a better pied-a-terre. For those visiting the city for extended periods of time, The Ellington offers everything you could ask for – a gym, a perfect location, great public transit, and spacious, well-equipped residences with everything you need and nothing you don’t. Long term New Yorkers might not favor the building, but as we stated above, the fact that there are no available units is a testament to The Ellington’s popularity.
