Sutton Place is home to some of New York’s most elite residents and was once the stomping grounds of Aristotle Onassis, Freddy Mercury, Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe and former New York Governor Mario Cuomo. The neighborhood is as rich in history as ghosts from the past, with its hallmark recognition of famous celebs.
Spanning a few blocks between Midtown and the Upper East Side, Sutton Place sits along the East River. It provides a quiet enclave that is popular among architecture buffs because of the Neo-Georgian townhouse design. One large, 14,000 square foot, Neo-Georgian townhouse located in the Sutton Place area is the official residence of the Secretary General of the United Nations. This townhouse is grander and more architecturally designed than most suburban style mansions.
The Sutton Place Hotel is located along east 56th Street and provides furnished suites that are reminiscent of the pre-war era. Fully renovated and expansive residential apartments offer intimate ambience and impressive views customary with Sutton Place living.
Pre-war apartment buildings with river views are also found in the area. The neighborhood is known for its peaceful charm and residential ambience. A large park provides green space for many of the area’s residents and is known as Sutton Place Park. For an even more charming and quiet enclave within an enclave, Sutton Square is a set of six brownstone town houses that overlook the East River. A shared outdoor garden is perfectly poised for its residents.
Riverview Terrace is another prestigious and highly coveted segmented row of townhouses along a private drive at the dead end of Sutton Square. The area is gated and the secret street lined with cobblestone to add to its mystique and allure. River views and rooftop decks are among common amenities found at this private set of residences.
