Located in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in all of New York City, the St. George Residence is on the site of what was once the famed St. George Hotel – a hot spot that drew celebrities, athletes, and presidential candidates.

Polonsky Shakespeare Center is a short 3 subway stops to Nevins Street.
