About the area:
Lenox Hill is close to Midtown Manhattan and encompasses the lower section of the Upper East Side. It is bound by 60th Street and 77th Street from South to North and Lexington Avenue to Fifth Avenue from East to West.
One of the best characteristics of Lenox Hill is the variety of homes.The glorious, pre-war Sherry Netherlands on 781 Fifth Avenue for example has 165 luxury co-ops ranging from one-bedroom to more than six-bedrooms. Like Carnegie Hill, this neighborhood in New York City is also brimming with gilded age mansion homes like the Beaux Arts limestone beauty at 57 East 74th Street.
Ursus Book and Prints is among the must-stop places in the area. It is housed inside the famed Carlyle and holds collections of rare, illustrated books from the 15th to 21St centuries. The Carlyle also contains the Art Deco Bemelmans Bar. Besides a great menu and entertainment calendar, customers can admire the establishment’s 24-karat gold leaf-covered ceiling.
Lenox Hill is also known for its variety of boutiques. Shopping options range from the Milano Jeweler, Pomellato, to the floral arrangements from Lexington Gardens. If shopping is not the ideal stress reliever, places like the Spa at Equinox are available too. Other Cultural delights include New York City museums like the Frick Collection on East 70th Street, containing the masterful paintings of Rembrandt, El Greco, and Jan Vermeer among a collection of fine sculptures, porcelain, and furniture. The nearby Whitney Museum and Asia Society also display contemporary American art and the famed Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller Collection.
Lenox Hill properties are a rare find with wondrous surroundings that you won’t want to leave once you arrive.
