Real Estate

Until 2003 or so, the West Thirties were mostly tenements and lofts, not full-service buildings. But Sebastian Junger bought an apartment a couple of years ago, and fancy high-rises have appeared between Penn Station and the Javits Center. Here’s what’s available now.

37. Hudson Crossing
400 W. 37th St., at Ninth Ave
This fifteen-story mid-rise rents studios from $2,200 and two-bedrooms from $3,900. With a Sleepy’s and an H&R Block in the lobby, it has a dormlike feeling, but tenants like the on-site dry cleaning and social hours (Equity Residential managing agents, 212-563-8000).

38. The Olivia
315 W. 33rd St., nr. Eighth Ave.
In the shadow of Moynihan Station’s construction cranes, this building has a gym, a 250-car garage next door, and river views from nearly every apartment. There’s a Loews multiplex around the corner and the nation’s biggest post office down the street (rental office, 212-594-6660).

39. Infinity Court (pictured)
545 W. 34th St., nr. Eleventh Ave.
The cobblestone entrance creates a psychological break with West 34th Street. Inside, there are fourteen-foot ceilings, twin pedestal sinks in the bathrooms, and your choice of a terrace or a courtyard for roaming (Moinian Rentals, 212-808-4000).

40. The Orion
350 W. 42nd St., nr. Ninth Ave.
This 60-story condo developed by Gary Barnett includes a pool alongside the now-common full-service health club. Prudential Douglas Elliman broker Julian Hutter (212-702-4072) is listing a one-bedroom for $3,000.
