Choosing a modern luxury apartment in New York City isn’t just about making sure the amenities are to your liking. Spacious interiors, updated kitchens and bathrooms, and good lobby security are important, of course. But since New York City is such a dynamic place to live, you also want to choose an apartment that gives you access to all the exciting things the city has to offer. This is what makes living at the Dryden East in Murray Hill amazing, and we want to share with you why the location of the Dryden East is second to none.


The Dryden East is located just a few minutes from the train station that will get you anywhere you want to go: Grand Central Station. Whether you’re headed to Washington, D.C., Boston, the mountains or the beach, Grand Central is your portal to any destination on the East Coast. Going somewhere more local? The Dryden East is also located less than a block from bus stops serving lines that head to your favorite uptown destinations as well as hip neighborhoods downtown.
