An increasingly popular neighborhood, Lenox Hill is home to college graduates, families, and long-time residents in a relatively quiet neighborhood thanks to its lack of multiple subway terminals.
The historic Lenox Hill Hospital and Hunter College are staples of the area while Central Park is more or less in one’s backyard.
A mix of large post-war apartment buildings, pre-war row houses, walk-ups and a handful of mansions and townhouses make up Lenox Hill.
Best Kept Secret
Lenox Hill is home to the Frick Collection, a private collection of many European masterpieces, antique furniture, oriental rugs and much more.
College students, commuters, families and tourists go about their business between Central Park, the hospital, Hunter College and the multiple local businesses.
Aside from the hospital, Lenox Hill is considerably less lively in terms of pedestrian traffic at night but still hosts a number of bars and restaurants frequented by locals unwinding from work.
