Lenox Hill


Lenox Hill

Lenox Hill is a neighborhood on Manhattan's Upper East Side. It forms the lower section of the Upper East Side, closest to Midtown. While it is agreed that the neighborhood ranges from 77th Street to 60th Street, its eastern border is disputed, though "The Encyclopedia of New York City" cites Fifth Avenue as the western boundary and Lexington Avenue on the east. [Jackson, Kenneth T. "The Encyclopedia of New York City", Yale University Press (1995), "Lenox Hill", p. 663.]

The neighborhood is named for the farm of Robert Lenox, who owned the land from what is now 5th Avenue to Park Avenue and 74th Street to 68th Street.

Lenox Hill Hospital is located in this area.
