As a professional real estate salesperson, it's my job to know all of Manhattan's neighborhoods, and I wanted to share with my readers just a few of the places where I spend time.
I live in the Sutton Place area and spend time on the Upper Eastside and Upper Westside of Manhattan shopping and visiting friends. In between is the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle at Central West and 59th Street which is always a fun place to shop, dine and enjoy wonderful jazz concerts. And Central Park is directly across the street.
About Sutton Place: Sutton Place is the wide (north/south) avenue that runs only two blocks, from 57th Street to 59th Street, along the East River. The stretch that continues below 57th Street down to 53rd Street is called Sutton Place South. North of 59th Street, it continues as York Avenue. The greater Sutton Place area is bounded on the east by the East River and on the west by Second Avenue, and is coextensive with Sutton Place and Sutton Place South (i.e., 53rd Street to 59th Street). Sutton Square is the cul-de-sac at the end of East 58th Street, just east of Sutton Place.
About the Upper Eastside: A primarily residential and commercial neighborhood between Central Park and the East River. The Upper East Side lies within an area bounded by 59th Street, 96th Street, Central Park and the East River. The Upper Eastside is abundant with restaurants, movies, shopping, museums and so much more.
About the Upper Westside: A neighborhood between Central Park and the Hudson River above West 59th Street and below West 125th Street. It encompasses the neighborhood of Morningside Heights. This is also primarily a residential and commercial neighborhood. Restaurants are everywhere on the Upper Westside, and in the summer outdoor cafes are plentiful. It offers shopping, movies, Lincoln Center, gorgeous sunsets and more!
About Time Warner Center: The Time Warner Center is a mixed-use skyscraper across from Central Park consisting of two 750 ft towers bridged by a multi-story atrium containing retail shops and restaurants, as well as the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
Living in this wonderful city and knowing its neighborhoods allows me to fully help my each and every one of my customers. It's a great time to live in Manhattan.
