Getting Around Midtown

Navigate like a local

While the amount of mass transportation options might seem daunting, Sutton Court is conveniently located near major subway lines and train stations. No matter the length of your stay on the Upper East Side, this guide should help you feel a little more comfortable getting around the Big Apple.


Sutton Court is walking distance to 3 major Subways in Midtown, the 4\5, the E, and the N/R/W. If you feel like heading uptown to check out Museum Mile or Central Park, take the 4\5 from Lexington 59th Street. For heading downtown to lower Manhattan hop on the E- or, if a Mets game is in your future, take it in the Queens bound direction to catch a few innings at Citi Field. For getting into Brooklyn, take the R train all the way downtown to Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, or another neighborhood. Just remember to take the trains in the right direction!


Similar to subways, this major transportation unit is useful to getting to areas where subways don’t have major stations. Use the bus system to get cross town, or into neighborhoods where subway stations are less frequent. The bus system is a great way to see the city above ground!

Citi Bikes

A fairly new transportation option, this shared bike program is everywhere in the city. You’re bound to run into a row of docked Citi Bikes on every other street corner. They’re easy to use, fairly inexpensive, and a great way to see the city’s less busy areas, such as parks and riverside walkways.


For when you feel the need to escape the concrete jungle, New York City has two major train stations offering Metro North, Long Island Railroad, New Jersey Transit, and Amtrak service. The latter are offered at Penn Station, just a short cab away to the west side of Manhattan. The beautiful Grand Central Station is just a walk away from Sutton Court, and offers trains to Connecticut or upstate New York.

As always, our helpful staff are available to assist you with any transportation questions or directions.
