"Pretty boring street"

55th is one of the more commercial parts of Sutton Place. Being that Sutton Place couldn't be further from commercial, that's not saying much. But, the bit of commerce mixed in with the large amounts of apartment buildings kind of take away from the mansion kind of vibe that this neighborhood is known for. And, because there aren't any restaurants or bars, there's still no real energy despite the fact that there are a lot of people. If I were going to live in Sutton Place, this probably wouldn't be in my top choices of a street to live on.
55th at 2nd holds a synagogue, a church, a fantastic and massive antiques center and a fantastic but very expensive Viennese restaurant. That's about it on this block. So, if you like holy places and expensive food, this is your spot. Apparently, all the people across first love those things because that entire block is large apartment buildings. None of them are noteworthy but they are all named which usually translates to expensive with doormen. It's a nice street but there's just no neighborhood vibe which I find unsettling. Then again, almost the entirety of of the UES is like that so it tends to be families and retirees. The one cool thing about this street is that just up at 3rd avenue is the original PJ Clarkes which I, weirdly, love. It's pretty ragtag nowadays but it used to be quite grand and has a lot of history that most uptown bars don't have. I go out of my way just to go here so I wouldn't mind it being just up the street.
  • Nice apartments
  • A great restaurant
  • Antiques
  • Public transportation is rough
  • No nightlife scene
  • weird non-energy
