Sutton Gardens Overview

This attractive, 12-story, red-brick apartment building was erected in 1955. It is a cooperative and has 237 apartments.

The building has a nice, delicate wrought-iron railing on its roofline and many corner balconies. It is across the street from a one-story garage topped by a tennis court and is also just to the east of the gated plaza of the Cornell University Medical Center facility in the St. James Tower apartment building, whose entrance is on 54th Street, and therefore this building has considerable "light-and-air." It has gardens, a step-down lobby with an automatic door entrance, a concierge, and sidewalk landscaping.

There are two pleasant small parks overlooking the East River nearby.

This Sutton Place area has many restaurants and some dramatic views either of the waterfront or the midtown skyline. There is very good cross-town bus service on 57th Street, but subways are not close.
