"Fancy Pants"

There are some really ugly but really expensive apartments on 58th right at 2nd Avenue. Well, I don't actually know if the units are ugly but the exterior of both buildings is an eye sore in what is already not the prettiest block of all time. But, the street makes a pretty sharp turn in the aesthetics department just a few jaunts east, so we'll forgive these two monster globs. Rosa Mexicano, a mexican chain restaurant is right on the corner at 1st. I don't like Rosa's food and I think it's really overpriced for mexican food, but it has a good energy and it's one of the few restaurants in the neighborhood so I won't complain about it.
1st Avenue is more apartment buildings that are nice but none of them noteworthy. The real magic of Sutton Place happens at Sutton Place, naturally. 58th at Sutton Place magically becomes this gorgeous neighborhood of sprawling townhouses. It looks like it's in another city in another time. I can't stress how beautiful this block is enough. It's majestic. Most of the townhouses were built around the end of the 19th century. There's a peculiar and massive townhouse at 6-8 E 58th that was actually 3 separate houses combined into two by two brother-in-laws. The property lines actually change from floor to floor. It's an interesting looking house / houses and it looks about the size of a small hotel. Robert Henri lived at 14 at the turn of the 20th century and Jack Warner of Warner Brothers lived in the massive house across the street (7). The owner of the Dallas Cowboys has also lived in this townhouse. 16 E 58th was once home to both Aristotle Onassis and the owner of Goldman Sachs at separate times. And, I think the residents of that house alone give a pretty good indication of what kind of money we're talking about in regards to living on this block. It's very opulent, quiet, beautiful and home to only the most elite of all elite.
It's just a beautiful stretch of road that is, yes, incredibly uppity, but I guess that goes with "can own your own island" kind of money.
