Since it started welcoming renters a few years back, Sky—billed as the city’s largest rental building—has become a hotspot for New York athletes, with several New York Knicks (including star forward Kristaps Porzingis) and Mets pitcher A.J. Ramos taking up residence there.
(The building’s swank athletic center, which features a NBA regulation-sized basketball court—allegedly designed by Carmelo Anthony—and an enormous pool, probably has something to do with that.)
Now, another Mets star is joining the club; pitcher Noah Syndergaard—affectionately known as Thor, thanks to his flowing mane and powerhouse pitching—has moved in, according to his Instagram account. He’s posted a couple of photos in the space, including one that shows off its Hudson River views.
Syndergaard is living in a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, situated at a corner of the building to maximize views—which, according to the pitcher, were part of the draw. “I only have to leave the building for Mets games,” he said in a press release. “I love it!” (And hey, it can’t hurt that the 7 train to Citi Field is just a few blocks away.)
In addition to its ridiculous number of apartments (there are more than 1,100 spread throughout the skyscraper), Sky comes with an equally ridiculous spate of amenities, including a garden with a Yayoi Kusama sculpture, a pet spa, room service (including complimentary breakfast), a valet and private motor court, and several infinity pools.
None of that comes cheap, of course; the least expensive rental currently available on StreetEasy is a $3,045/month studio.
