Alexa! What’s the East Village’s Greatest Building?

From ordering groceries to checking the weather, multitasking just got easier. Lucky for you, when you live at EVGB, your new luxury rental comes equipped with Amazon Alexa.

Alexa will serve as DJ, weather forecaster, research partner, and, of course, your personal chef’s assistant! Not only will EVGB’s kitchens – appointed with Miele, Bosch, and Kohler appliances – call your inner creative chef to the stove, but Alexa will make it easier to put together a satisfying home-cooked meal than it’s ever been before. Alexa can look up a recipe, supply you with step-by-step guidance on how to proceed, convert measurements on command, and even order missing tools and ingredients. Alexa can also provide the background music (from your voice-activated playlist), whether you’re preparing the food or enjoying the resulting dinner party with friends.

Using Alexa’s “routines” option, you can ask her to perform a set of tasks with one single command: for example, you can set up a routine to wake you up, open the shades, and give you the low-down on the day’s weather. You can ask her for nutrition and health advice, she can also feed those moments when curiosity strikes, and you simply need to know the name of the actor from that foreign film you just saw at Cinema Village around the corner.

While Alexa is the perfect companion for your life at EVGB, she is also a gateway to the near-infinite possibilities for shopping, dining, and culture that will surround you at your East Village luxury apartment. Ask her to find the best Greek restaurant in the neighborhood, and you’ll soon be feasting on the honey-braised lamb shank at Pylos. In the mood to hunt for treasures at one of the nearby vintage clothing shops? Alexa can help you find stores like AuH2O to supply you with the rarest and the greatest Gucci jackets and Diane Von Furstenberg dresses New York City has to offer.

And don’t forget to check out EVGB’s very own mobile app that enables you to manage building services at any time! Used in tandem with Alexa, this app takes your days in the East Village to the next level, whether you want to go out on the town or unwind with a freshly delivered local pizza and curl up with a good ebook…vetted and read to you by Alexa herself.
