Midtown East, NY —
The City That Never Sleeps

Sutton Place is one of the city’s most affluent neighborhoods, It covers a small area from 53rd to 59th Street, between the East River to Second Ave. The area is named after Effingham B. Sutton, a shipping merchant and entrepreneur who built brownstones in the area in 1875. By the turn of the century the area fell into disrepair. In 1920, it was saved by the arrival of the Vanderbilt’s and the Morgan’s which began the neighborhood transformation into a wealthy enclave.

Prominent past and present neighbors include; Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller, Aristotle Onassis, Joan Crawford, Dick Clark, Maureen O’Harra, Van Johnson, Bobby Short and former Governor Mario Cuomo. One Sutton Place is considered one of the most sought after pre-war coops.
