The Huxley


East Harlem has a new luxury condo development: the Huxley. Located at 181 East 101st Street, the Huxley is in close proximity to Upper East Side attractions like Museum Mile and Central Park. On this page, we will walk you through everything you need to know about the Huxley: its luxurious residences, the architecture of the building, the surrounding neighborhood, and its diverse array of amenities.

The Huxley’s Architecture

The architecture of the Huxley is seeped in modern luxury. Designed by NYC architects Workshop DA and constructed by Wonder Works, the Huxley is a 9 story condo building with 71 total units, ranging from studios to 3 bedrooms.

The Huxley’s Design

Workshop DA (which stands for Design + Architecture) is known for residential projects around the city, including large multi-family developments and individual townhouses. Based in Brooklyn, Workshop DA collaborates with clients to create sustainable and innovative architecture.

And that is what they have done with the Huxley. In collaboration with developers and builders Wonder Works and Serhant., Workshop DA has created an environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing residential building.

The Huxley’s Facade

The exterior of the Huxley is covered in travertine, a natural limestone that is at once warm and modern. Oversized, metal-framed windows are set into the travertine facade, creating bold lines on the building’s striking exterior. These windows aren’t just ornamental; they are high performance acoustic windows that block noise and give residences a sense of calm and privacy.

The Huxley’s Interiors


The interiors at the Huxley are luxurious and modern, from the lobby to the residences. Also designed by Workshop DA, the Huxley’s interiors are warm, bright, and elegant.

The Lobby at The Huxley


Stepping into the Huxley’s spa-like lobby is like entering into an urban oasis. The warm-toned travertine stone that covers the building’s facade continues into the lobby. The travertine combines with other natural materials–like dark, striking marble and warm wood, to create a welcoming and calming atmosphere. The lobby features seating as well as a front desk attended by a part-time doorman.

The Residences at The Huxley


The residences at the Huxley are spacious, bright, and modern. Each apartment unit is filled with light from the large windows. Wide plank wood flooring runs throughout the residences. High ceilings and large, open floor areas create a sense of space and depth, perfect for curating any furnishing layout to match your needs.

The living areas are open concept, so you can make the most of your space. The options are endless; your living area can function as a lounge, entertainment center, dining room, home office, and more.

In the kitchen, minimalism meets luxury. Dark-colored Italian marble Marmi Scala terrazzo countertops and backsplashes (one of this season’s hottest kitchen design trends) offset the warm wood custom cabinetry from Alta Cucine.

The Huxley’s kitchens seamlessly integrate cutting edge appliances from Bertazzoni and Blomberg into this custom cabinetry. Everything is built-in, from ovens and dishwashers, to wine storage. The overall effect is sleek yet inviting–perfect for a modern kitchen.

In the Huxley’s bathrooms, residents will find even more marble terrazzo, as well as striking Newform fixtures like a rain shower head and integrated sinks. Heated floor and deep soaking tubs add to the luxury of the Huxley’s bathrooms.

Some residences come with added perks, including private outdoor space and dedicated home-office areas. However, this is only for select units, so talk to your real estate agent to make sure the unit you are considering meets all of your needs.

The Huxley’s Amenities


The Huxley’s amenities include a variety of services (like a part time doorman, package and mailrooms, and bike storage) as well as spaces for entertainment, relaxation, and wellness.

Health and Wellness Amenities at The Huxley

The Huxley’s fitness center is full of state of the art equipment like treadmills, weight benches, stationary bikes, and strength training equipment. The mirrored walls let you check your form, and wall-mounted TVs keep you entertained while you run, lift, stretch, and more.

Entertainment and Relaxation Amenities at The Huxley

Near the fitness center, there is a lounge room with billiards, a large television, and seating for relaxation. This is a great indoor spot to spend hours with your guests. Head outdoors to the rooftop terrace to take in fresh air and Manhattan skyline views. The landscaped rooftop terrace has a variety of seating, from plush couches to lounge chairs, where you can rest and relax. Residents and their guests can use the BBQ grills on the roof to cook food and host events.

Downstairs, there is even an outdoor fireplace in the furnished courtyard, so you can enjoy the fresh air year round. This private courtyard is another wonderful option for residents to host events and socialize with their neighbors.

The Huxley’s Neighborhood: East Harlem


East Harlem, located right above the Upper East Side and to the East of Harlem proper, is rich in culture and history. A diverse neighborhood, East Harlem has traditionally been home to people from a variety of backgrounds, especially Latin, Caribbean, and African American New Yorkers.

East Harlem’s Cultural Roots

Residents of the Huxley can enjoy the rich culture of East Harlem, also known as Spanish Harlem and El Barrio. Delicious Puerto Rican and Dominican food abounds, but there is also plenty of other cuisines including Mexican, Cuban, Chinese, and Italian.

In fact, one of NYC’s oldest Italian restaurants–Rao’s–is still open and very popular in East Harlem. This Italian institution has been open for more than a century, and still manages to draw a loyal crowd of devotees and first-timers alike. You can also stop by Patsy’s Pizzeria, which was established in 1933. These Italian American landmarks harken back to the early 1900’s when East Harlem was known as “Italian Harlem,” and was home to a vibrant Italian immigrant community.

Over the decades, Italians began to leave East Harlem, and Latin and Caribbean immigrants moved in. The neighborhood took on a new character, and Spanish Harlem was born. To explore more of the origins and culture of Spanish Harlem, consider a visit to El Museo del Barrio, which hosts educational events, exhibitions, and more.

Explore East Harlem


If you want to get to know East Harlem before purchasing real estate there, then here are some tips for exploring the neighborhood.

  • Eat Cuchifritos: traditional Puerto Rican fried foods. You can find cuchifritos throughout East Harlem, but the historic Cuchifritos lunch counter is worth a special trip. Go and enjoy anything pork. You won’t regret it.
  • Take in some art: highlights include Keith Haring mural, the Graffiti Hall of Fame, and exhibitions at El Museo del Barrio.
  • Get to know the city: soak up the history of NYC at the Museum of the City of New York.
  • Enjoy Central Park without the crowds: The upper part of Central Park, which ends at 110th Street, is typically less crowded than the lower parts of the park. The Central Park Conservatory Garden–located between 104th and 106th–is a particular highlight.

Take Advantage of a Prime Location


In addition to all it has to offer within its borders, East Harlem also benefits from a prime location. Located right above the Upper East Side, East Harlem is very close to the Museum Mile and its famous institutions: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and more. Cultural events, lectures, and readings at the 92nd Street Y are also only a few blocks away from the Huxley.

The Huxley Keeps Connected

The Huxley is conveniently situated near major subway lines including the yellow line (N/Q) and green line (4/5). These trains are great for commuters, quickly and easily connecting residents of the Huxley to Midtown, Downtown, Brooklyn, and more.
