The family friendly Upper East Side is known for its prime real estate and designer boutiques and is classic New York City. Central Park is nearby and the area is easily accessed by three subway lines.
THE UPPER EAST SIDE:
The Upper East Side is old-style, luxe Manhattan where white-gloved doormen welcome you to your apartment building and where New York's most exclusive shops are on your doorstep.
Museum Mile has the highest concentration of galleries and museums in the city, some of the finest in the country including: The Guggenheim, the Jewish Museum, the Frick Collection and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Although the Upper East Side is best known for upscale real-estate, well-known prep schools and designer boutiques, affordable apartments and relaxed living are easy to find in this quiet and bright neighborhood.
Some of America's most famous families have made their homes on the Upper East Side, including the Roosevelts, Kennedys, Rockefellers, and Carnegies - all real-estate pioneers in the early 1900s and who developed the neighborhood into a beautiful and upmarket place to live.
For many, the Upper East Side is the ideal balance between cosmopolitan living and pastoral sensibility. The Upper East Side has steadily become a popular destination for the under-30 crowd and tends to moves at a slower, more relaxed paced than other neighborhoods in Manhattan.
The wealth of playgrounds, community centers, and schools make it feel like a suburb within the city whilst Central Park becomes your playground when you live on the Upper East Side with no shortage of options for running and biking.
