    Just moved in. The leasing process was much smoother than most of NYC. The staff is very helpful and polite. They made our move-in very easy. Road access in the front for our cars, and side for the truck was quick and convenient. Everything is clean and quiet. Just a short walk to the subways. And great for those with pets.

    5/5 Brian K. on Mar 22, 2024

    Great staff and great place to live! 470 Manhattan is located in prime territory: close to the G and L, next to a park, and a stones throw away from great dining.

    I have lived at 568 Union Avenue for 6 months now, and can definitively say that it is the best apartment I've ever rented. The building is in a convenient yet quiet location, has fantastic amenities, and a friendly staff. My apartment has modern finishes and is very well maintained by the maintenance team. I highly recommend living here.
