Property Description


Rarely available, front-facing, high-floor suite at the luxurious Lombardy Hotel. Don't let the maintenance concern you. This hotel apartment makes the perfect pied-?-terre when you're in town, and a great investment when you're away. The hotel rents your apartment on a nightly, weekly or monthly basis, allowing you to recoup approximately 50% of the rent. And you never have to lift a finger. The hotel handles everything -- all bookings, guest relations, paperwork and housekeeping.

This beautifully, fully-furnished, 900-square foot unit is exceptional in every way -- from its gracious layout with a true entrance foyer, to pre-war details everywhere you look. 9-foot, beamed ceilings add to the drama of a home with great bones. Both the living room and bedroom are oversized in length and width, plus each affords a wall of windows that bring in all-day southern light.

What makes this one-bedroom home so special is that it has two full bathrooms, so overnight guests are never an issue. The enormous primary bedroom has a twenty foot-long wall unit that easily accommodates a full wardrobe as well as a marble en-suite bath with walk-in shower.

Built in 1926 by William Randolph Hearst, the Lombardy Hotel has been home to legends such as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Richard Rogers, Bette Davis, and others. It offers unparalleled pre-war elegance and boutique appeal. Services at the Lombardy are unmatched and include twice daily maid service, bellman, concierge and dry cleaning services, a fitness center, business center, beauty salon, espresso bar and valet parking.

Located in the heart of Manhattan, between Park and Lexington Avenues, 111 E. 56th Street is a prime location - - only four blocks to Central Park and minutes to all of the best shopping Madison and Fifth Avenues have to offer. Minutes to the city's top museums and adjacent to the Theatre District, as well as the finest restaurants in the city. Foreign, corporate, trust and pied-?-terre purchases are welcome. Pets are allowed and 50% financing is permitted. Electricity and gas are included in the maintenance.

This is truly a property that must be seen to be fully appreciated. Showings are by appointment with 24-hour notice please.

One Bed in Midtown East


Midtown East | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Midtown West and Midtown East have a lot in common. They’re bustling, iconic, and full of people. But just like siblings, their personalities can be vastly different. Midtown East is a bit more sophisticated and doesn’t quite have the vivacity and unruliness that its westerly counterpart exudes. 

Midtown East is bordered by 42nd to the south, 59th Street to the north, 5th Avenue to the west, and 3rd Avenue to the east. 

The neighborhood is famous for its high-end stores, tourist attractions, posh hotels (budget ones too), and iconic architecture. Midtown East is also one of the largest financial and business hubs in Manhattan. During normal business hours the sidewalks are full of commuters and people moving from point A to point B. In the early evening, when the masses have left for the day, things suddenly get a little quieter and the sidewalks have a lot less foot traffic.  

Although largely a commercial neighborhood, residential areas of Midtown East do exist on the eastern section of the neighborhood. 

Grand Central Station is located in Midtown East and like Midtown West, it’s an extremely commutable neighborhood. The 4, 5, 6, 7 and S trains whisk people in and out of the neighborhood 24 hours a day. Grand Central Station also serves as a hub for New York State and Connecticut commuter rails. These trains can take you anywhere along the Hudson River or up into Connecticut. It’s perfect for day tripping.
