The Enclave residents will enjoy a full suite of cutting-edge indoor and outdoor amenities that were curated to create an exceptional urban lifestyle experience.  An abundance of desired outdoor space is highlighted by a resort-style rooftop terrace featuring a swimming pool, private BBQ areas, outdoor bar and a fire pit – all set against the dazzling Manhattan skyline backdrop.  The pet-friendly building also features a dog run and spa, multiple entertainment lounges, an arcade/game room, co-working spaces and conference room, children’s imagination room with connected outdoor play area and a Zen garden.  Fitness enthusiasts will enjoy a state-of-the art fitness center with virtual fitness programs, spin room, indoor/outdoor yoga areas, private massage room and resident locker rooms.

Ever since she got pregnant freshman year, Emoni Santiago’s life has been about making the tough decisions—doing what has to be done for her daughter and her abuela. The one place she can let all that go is in the kitchen, where she adds a little something magical to everything she cooks, turning her food into straight-up goodness. Even though she dreams of working as a chef after she graduates, Emoni knows that it’s not worth her time to pursue the impossible. Yet despite the rules she thinks she has to play by, once Emoni starts cooking, her only choice is to let her talent break free.
