Midtown East Neighborhood
Living in Midtown East doesn’t necessarily mean contending with hordes of commuters and tourists though, since residential sub-neighborhoods like Murray Hill, Sutton Place, and Beekman Place offer a peaceful, out-of-the-way respite from the hustle and bustle. Buying or renting real estate here—whether a swank condo in a skyscraper or an elegant townhome—doesn’t come cheap. And the price tag for Midtown East’s services reflects the affluence of its residents. Legendary Michelin-starred restaurants like La Grenouille and Aquavit offer heady dining experiences at equally stratospheric prices, while Madison and Fifth Avenues are lined with the flagships of the most exclusive luxury stores anywhere.
