What to Know Before Moving to Metropolitan Hill

As part of the vaunted Upper East Side, Metropolitan Hill is an often overlooked enclave that offers that classic UES charm, gorgeous surroundings, and much more.

Neighborhood Tidbits

As previously mentioned, Metropolitan Hill gets its name from the Metropolitan Museum of Art (also known as The Met). As part of the Upper East Side, the enclave was in dire need of a distinct title in order to differentiate the location between East 86th Street and East 77th Street from more well-known parts of the UES. Andrew Fine, a realtor, took it upon himself to give the community its own name, Metropolitan Hill, to clearly define the section east of Central Park, south of Carnegie Hill, and west of Yorkville, and north of Lenox Hill.

Amenities And Attractions

Sharing its western border with Central Park, Metropolitan Park affords its residents easy access to the world-famous space (which includes Ancient Playground, Arthur Ross Pinetum, and the 55-acre Great Lawn). Also situated within the boundaries of Central Park is the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Met is one of the largest and most respected museums in the world, offering a captivating glimpse into more than 5,000 years of art from various countries and mediums. The enclave is also home to Neue Galerie New York, and you can find the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum just north of the neighborhood in Carnegie Hill. Designed by world-famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, it houses stunning modern and contemporary art.

Equally parts cultured and community-focused, the enclave is home to the rich and famous. Despite its regal nature (especially with respect to its proximity to The Met), the neighborhood still maintains a serene, even somewhat quaint atmosphere.
