History: The former extension of “Avenue A” was bequeathed its current moniker by developer Effingham B. Sutton in 1875 and received a fashionable makeover in the 1920′s when socialites like the Vanderbilts began to build along the East River, enticing the artsy intelligentsia to join them. Development of luxurious co-op buildings quickly followed, ceased during the Great Depression, and picked up again in the 40′s and 50′s.
Activities: If you’re looking for exciting nightlife, head downtown or east. However, you can still enjoy a great meal on nearby 1st Avenue, which is now dotted with an array of restaurants including the festive favorite Rosa Mexicano and the romantic French Bistro Vendome. The fitness inclined can jog along the East River, take a furry friend to one of many dog runs, or pick up a game of tennis at the private Sutton East Tennis Club. Nothing says luxury like being able to walk home from a world-class concert at Carnegie Hall.
Check it out: Establish yourself as a major global art world player at prestigious auction house Sotheby’s, which has its headquarters nearby on York Avenue. Feeling novel? Jump on the tram to Roosevelt Island for an afternoon jaunt.
