Sutton Place

One of New York City's smallest and most exclusive neighborhoods, Sutton Place, is loaded with regal townhouses and lovely pre-war apartment buildings. Sutton Place residents mostly rely on the city at large for their shopping, dining and entertainment needs, as there is not much commercial space in the neighborhood. There are two public parks in the Sutton Place community, both overlooking the East River, at the end of 57th and 53rd Streets, respectively. The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation is currently trying to double the size the 57th Street park by reclaiming the land it says belongs to the people, but which now sits behind an iron fence and functions as a private garden for One Sutton Place South residents
