Metropolitan Hill

In an almost-forgotten corner of the Upper East Side rests the quaint neighborhood of Metropolitan Hill - which takes its name from the world famous Metropolitan Museum of Art on its western border.

The neighborhood

Between East 77th Street and East 86th Street, and between Central Park and Third Avenue, is the little-known neighborhood of Metropolitan Hill. This enclave was christened by realtor Andrew Fine to distinguish it from the other, more well-known sections of the Upper East Side.

And given its own distinct features, the presence of The Met, and the borders of nearby Carnegie Hill and Lenox Hill, there's more than enough reason to legitimize Metropolitan Hill as its own section in the neighborhoods of New York City.
