Neighborhood Spotlight: Sutton Place
Besides being the location of Woody Allen’s iconic Manhattan bridge scene, Sutton Place is a cozy enclave by the East River that is historically known for upscale apartments and prestigious residents. Running from 53rd Street to 59th Street between First Avenue and the East River, the neighborhood has some of the most elegant and classic pre-war co-ops in the city, complete with around-the-clock doormen, roof decks, gyms, shared gardens, and more. Former Governor Mario Cuomo, designer Kenneth Cole, and actress Sigourney Weaver currently call Sutton Place home, and former residents include Michael Jackson, I. M. Pei, Freddie Mercury, Joan Crawford, and Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller. Take a look at some of our favorite spots in this secluded -- and exclusive -- neighborhood of Manhattan.
