Sutton Place

Sutton place is a true Manhattan gem. The East Side neighborhood is very small in size and runs from 59th street to 53rd street. Sutton place falls on a small part of Ave A, that was later renamed York Avenue in honor of an WWI U.S Sergeant named Alvin York. The brownstone lined street is named after the neighborhoods developer Effingham Sutton. Another notable feature in the neighborhood is Sutton Place Park.
