About 309 East 61st Street, 10, Sutton Area, Manhattan, NY 10065
Sutton Place and the area surrounding it is, in a word, small. Concentrated on 53rd through 59th streets between First Avenue and the East River, the neighborhood almost has a “blink, and you’ll miss it” quality. However, that characteristic makes residing on and around Sutton as desirable a prospect as you’ll find. It’s where the Midtown East mindset definitively ends, but the Upper East Side doesn’t quite begin: a tranquil outpost nestled between worlds. Effingham B. Sutton built townhouses here in 1875, hoping to establish a residential community. Yet, it wasn’t until names like Vanderbilt and Morgan arrived in the 1920s that the neighborhood began to fully form. Famed architects like Mott B. Schmidt, Rosario Candela, and Emery Roth would go on to build beautiful townhouses, which pair with the luxurious apartment buildings of the 1940s and 50s to continually define and draw folks into this singular riverside setting.
