It's no secret: the weather in New York this time of year can be downright bitter. And though there's a world of Broadway shows, cocktail speakeasies, upmarket gyms, and indulgent dining experiences to immerse yourself in, sometimes all you want is to batten down the hatches and hole up indoors. What better place is there to surround yourself with snuggly sophistication than your 70 Charlton condo?
First things first. Before you hunker down for the night, it's a sensible move to stock up on quality supplies. Fortunately, you don't have far to venture from your SoHo condo. Order a few boxes of treats for pick-up from nearby Dominique Ansel Bakery; we recommend their cookies shot with Tahitian vanilla milk, the “cotton soft” cheesecake, or—if you're planning a movie night—the caramel popcorn. For something stronger, call in at Nolita Wine Merchants, a sleek boutique store that'll fix you up with anything from a crate of Cotes du Rhone to a bottle of “Tears of Dawn” sake. Seeking out something heartwarming to put on the stereo? Thumb through the rare and out-of-print vinyl that's for sale in the beautifully cluttered House of Oldies. Now you're ready for home.
An evening dip
Longing for the inviting salty waters of Long Island in the summer? No need to wait six months. Residents can take a dip in 70 Charlton’s exclusive 60' indoor saltwater pool. Indulge in the heated waters; then warm up further by reclining in the steam room and letting the relaxing vapors swirl around you. You can always take it to the next level with a workout on the spin machines in the fully equipped private fitness center. But we'll forgive you for simply taking the stairs to your 70 Charlton condo.
Home, sweet home
Here, in the elegant surroundings of your 70 Charlton apartment is where your winter night really warms up. Put on one of your new records, before moving over to the Caesarstone Blizzard slab countertops of the open-plan gourmet kitchen and pouring yourself a vintage from Nolita Wine Merchants. If you have friends coming over, heat canapes in the Miele wall oven and prepare the spacious dining room table—set beneath chic midcentury style lighting—for a game of poker or Monopoly. Some guests may prefer to unwind and chat about the inclement weather; invite them to relax under mood lighting in the spacious living room. And if anyone wants to witness just how wintry it is outside, they can pull back the curtains to reveal floor-to-ceiling views of SoHo.
A quieter way to cozy up
Of course, your idea of a cozy winter's night might simply involve one or two people. Luxuriate in bubbles in the Zuma soaking tub by candlelight until those winter blues have melted away. Then it's time to sink into bed beneath a thick duvet with a hot chocolate and a good read. Winter's never been warmer.
