On the northern end of Midtown East, Sutton Place overlooks Roosevelt Island as it sits in the middle of the East River. Old brownstones, waterfront townhouses, and the brick facades of co-op high-rises are characteristic of this neighborhood, which draw upon the adjacent Upper East Side, making for a relaxed and manageable scene during the day, and a pleasantly quiet demeanor at night.
By the same token, the distinct energy of Midtown is conveniently close, with 57th Street marking both the northern border of Sutton Place and Central Park’s southern border.
Meanwhile, the neighborhood also hosts its own eponymous park, Sutton Place Park, which sits by the East River as a tract of greenery right on the waterfront. It’s this unique position at the intersection of Uptown and Midtown that accounts for its appearances in television and films that portray classic New York.
