We just toured the new Hunters Point South Crossing and Hunters Point South Commons apartments in Long Island City. We must say we are amazed.

Yes, we were one of the lucky ones who got chosen in the lottery out of over 92 thousand applications. But it was just not that easy, I never worked so hard to get a apartment in New York City like I did for this one. It was rough. The paper work involved was massive and they checked everything but my underwear size.

Apartment With Stunning Views

It was well worth it, we are in love with Related Managements view of what the next generation of New York City apartments should be. Hunters Point South is the new model of the future of living in NYC. Most units have washer and dryers, dishwashers and stainless steal appliances. Every room in every apartment has built in heating and air conditioning. Most units have stunning views of NYC and the East River. Ferry service is right on the doorstep and the subway number 7 line is a few blocks away. Restaurants are all over the neighborhood and a supermarket is right next door. Lets not forget to mention that they are adding a 11 thousand square foot Duane Reade right downstairs. Pets are allowed as long as they are not over 37 pounds and they are even adding a pet center. There is also the restaurant that will be high up overlooking Manhattan. Each building has fitness centers, Internet Cafes, lounges with outdoor terrace, bike rooms and so much more.
