Thanks for joining us! Right in the heart of the bustling financial district, our Anyplace Select units are minutes walking distance from Manhatten and a view of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Our team has lived in the properties to find the best coffee shop in the area, work out in the on-site gym, meet the neighbors poolside, and most importantly, collaborate with the Anyplace team from our in-unit office setup.

We love this place and hope you do too. Before you dive in, connect with fellow Anyplace Select members in your area through our WhatsApp group. Introduce yourself and plan a coffee chat with your new neighbors who are also working remotely.

Transportation in NYC

As you can imagine in a city home to more than 8 Million residents, you’ll want to avoid from driving your own car into the city. Great news is that public transportation can get you to every corner of the city thanks to the MTA, a widespread subway and bus system. Get yourself a MetroCard for $1 (with a minimum of $5.50 put on the card) and get access to all that NYC has to offer.  If you’re in a hurry, you can also rely on shared car services (like Uber or Lyft) or taxis to get around. Just expect to spend more, especially during busy times where prices skyrocket.
