East 42nd Street North To East 59th Street. East of 5th Avenue.
From 42nd to 59th Streets and Fifth Avenue to the East River, Midtown East is a walk-to-work neighborhood that includes Sutton Place and Beekman Place - two of the city's most sought-after residential enclaves - and the historical district of Tudor City - bounded by First and Second avenues, from East 40th to 44th Streets. A hectic street life by day and night, office towers and easy access to Long Island on weekends, this neighborhood is full of life 24/7. Many United Nations diplomats and employees reside in this neighborhood because of the convenient commute and "Diplomats Welcome" buildings.
