Vernon Tower Community
Are looking for a life full of enriching culture and endless opportunity? Vernon Tower is more than just a luxury apartment building. Our breathtaking waterfront views of the New York City skyline are only a snapshot of what you can find in the surrounding community. Located on the outskirts of the bustling city and amongst the cultural neighborhood of Astoria, every resident of Vernon Tower is sure to find their place.
When you live at Vernon Tower, it’s easy to spend a night out on the town or an afternoon strolling through museums. The toughest part will be choosing where you should visit first. Try the MoMA PS1, one of the largest art institutions in the country dedicated to contemporary art, or the Off-Off-Broadway Secret Theater in Long Island City. There’s also the Dutch Kills Theater, Astoria Performing Arts Center, or the Noguchi Museum just a short trip away!
On warmer days, take the kids to Socrates Park. A favorite of New York City, the park offers art exhibits, yoga sessions, film screenings, and even has kayaking in the summer months. The park’s growing popularity makes it a highlight for both residents and visitors alike.
Are you a foodie? Or just love exploring the countless restaurants of a new neighborhood? Our proximity to Astoria and Long Island City lands us amongst a wide assortment of must-try cuisine from around the world. Whether you are looking to fill that sushi craving, grab treats from a Greek bakery, or spend the afternoon catching up with friends at the local beer garden, you won’t find yourself with an empty stomach.
If you are looking for an easy commute, you’re in luck! Take a quick 15-minute subway ride to Manhattan or the short walk to Astoria Ferry. Our building also offers residents a designated taxi pick-up area along with valet parking for those with cars.
There are even future plans for a Brooklyn-Queens Connector (BQX) that will run along the East River, from Astoria in Queens to Sunset Park in Brooklyn. The idea of this train is to help eliminate traffic congestion for commuters and has an expected completion date of 2024. Also, if biking is more your thing, Citi Bike will be coming shortly to Vernon Blvd & 10th St as well as Broadway & 12th St.
Don’t Leave the Building
With a beautifully landscaped Green Roof Deck including an entertainment lounge, you can enjoy a sense of community with fellow residents without stepping foot off the property. Enjoy sunsets on the roof with family and friends after a long day or head down to our common area and game room for a relaxing weekend in. We hope to see you soon!
