How these 4 new developments are changing Two Bridges NYC


Have you ever heard of the Two Bridges NYC neighborhood? This little known real estate gem is undergoing a major transformation right now. New developments are changing the city skyline while offering incredible luxury housing.

Two Bridges Neighborhood NYC

On this page, we will explore everything you need to know about the neighborhood and 4 of its amazing buildings–One Manhattan Square, 39 Monroe Street, Idylls, and West Lake Terraces.

Where Is the Two Bridges NYC Neighborhood?

This small neighborhood in lower Manhattan lies nestled between–you guessed it–two bridges: the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge. Hemmed in by the East River on one side, the borders of the neighborhood are typically drawn at Montgomery Street, Division Street, and St. James Place. Surrounding neighborhoods include Chinatown and the Lower East Side, two of the most exciting destinations in the city.

Why You Should Live in Two Bridges NYC

Two Bridges is primarily a quiet, diverse, residential neighborhood. Families that have lived here for generations still run mom and pop stores and restaurants, while new developments bring a modern edge to this once sleepy part of Manhattan.

New Yorkers living in the Two Bridges neighborhood have easy access to some of the best nightlife and dining the city has to offer.

Neighborhood Amenities

To the west, neighboring Chinatown is a renowned culinary destination, filled with authentic food and exciting fusion fare alike. Explore beyond the hustle and bustle of Canal Street, and you can make amazing finds. Here you can enjoy some of the best Dim Sum outside of Shanghai, or try inventive and delicious icecream flavors like black sesame and pandan. Foodies are sure to love living so close to hand pulled noodles, peking duck, and sweet bubble tea.

To the north of the Two Bridges neighborhood, the Lower East Side is known for its unbeatable nightlife. Clubs, bars, speakeasies, and high-end restaurants–you can find it all here. But the Lower East Side, or LES, is not only for drinking, dancing, and partying the night away. Two Bridges residents can also enjoy the rich history, cozy cafes, and venerable museums that make teh LES so special.

Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, immigrants–particularly Germans, Italians, Jews, and Eastern Europeans, flocked to the iconic tenement buildings that dominate the Lower East Side. As time has passed, the neighborhood has only gotten more diverse, with many cultures finding homes here. If Two Bridges residents want to take in this eclectic neighborhood, they can visit the LES Tenement museum or the New Museum after grabbing a lunch at the famous Katz’s Deli.

Convenient Access

Even more fun awaits just across the East River in hip Brooklyn neighborhoods like Dumbo, Vinegar Hill, and Brooklyn Heights. These neighborhoods are ideal for art lovers, since quaint cobblestone streets are lined with art galleries, boutiques, and coffee shops. Two Bridges residents can get here by crossing the Brooklyn Bridge–one of the most iconic and beautiful structures in the entire city.

Finally, the Two Bridges neighborhood is conveniently located downtown. Chinatown offers access to almost all major train lines, making this a great spot to settle down for working New Yorkers. Within the Two Bridges neighborhood, the East Broadway F line is available.

This brand new condominium building is still in construction, but interested buyers can potentially sweep up one of 39 Monroe Street’s eight sponsor units. At only six stories, this building is significantly shorter than nearby One Manhattan Square. For buyers looking to enjoy new development luxuries while living in a less conspicuous building, 39 Monroe Street is a great option that fits right in with the eclectic neighborhood.

39 Monroe Street Residences

Some of the units here offer Juliet balconies, as well as an in-unit dishwasher. The kitchen design is clean and modern, with new appliances and white cabinets.

39 Monroe Street Amenities

Located near the East Broadway F train stop, 39 Monroe Street is also close to attractions like the South Street Seaport. Additionally, there is an outdoor space–a courtyard–available to all residents.


Another six story building, Idylls is located at 193 Henry Street. There are only five units–all two bedrooms–in this pet-friendly condominium, so interested buyers should act fast.

Idylls Residences

From the exterior, this new development looks sleek and modern, with bold windows set into a metal and glass facade. Designed by Brooklyn’s Think! Architecture and Design, these modular condos have great natural light, white oak wide-plank flooring, and private terraces. Kitchens feature Viking appliances, white cabinets, and black countertops.

Idylls Amenities

To match its forward thinking design, Idylls has cutting edge technological amenities. Residents can enjoy perks like HVAC with zoned controls, in-unit washer/dryer, and automatic lighting. There is also a virtual doorman for added security.

Community amenities include a landscaped roof terrace and sun deck. Here, residents can enjoy great views while cooking out on the provided grills.

West Lake Terraces

Finally, we have West Lake Terraces, a six story condominium with 20 total units.

West Lake Terraces Residences

About half of the units in the West Lake Terraces are studios, while the other half are one bedrooms. This makes them great purchases for single New Yorkers and couples who want to take advantage of this great location at a lower price.

As the name implies, these units come with their own terrace. If you want your own private outdoor space, then look no further. The terraces are great for catching fresh air, relaxing on summer evenings, and even entertaining with a few friends.

With large windows, the residences are filled with natural light and interesting views. West Lake Terraces residents can see the tops of surrounding historical tenement buildings, as well as the rising, gleaming spire of One Manhattan Square.

The kitchen comes equipped with stainless steel appliances as well as granite countertops.

West Lake Terraces Amenities

With a landscaped garden out front, West Lake Terraces values outdoor space. Each unit comes with a washer and dryer, as well as a heating and AC unit.
