Occupying a few city blocks just north of Midtown East, Sutton Place overlooks the gorgeous East River and Roosevelt Island. Sutton Place’s waterfront townhouses and brick facades of co-op high-rises define this neighborhood, drawing from the adjacent Upper East Side. During the day, Sutton Place is a relaxed scene, and has a pleasant demeanor at night. For those looking for a calm, quiet neighborhood, Sutton Place offers the serenity that contrasts itself from the bustling Manhattan.
That doesn’t mean Sutton Place is isolated, however. A few steps to the east takes you to the busy Midtown East, with its many bars, retail, eateries, and subway access that can take you anywhere from the center of Manhattan. Sutton Place features its own park by the waterfront, and many of the luxury apartments in the neighborhood have access to some of the best views of the East River.
