Upper East Side

This neighborhood of impeccable 19th-century townhouses and impossibly elegant shops used to be super-quiet and Park Avenue staid. It’s still like that, but has become newly fresh, with lively bars and restaurants attracting a crowd of celebrities and neighborhood denizens. The line-up of museums along Fifth Avenue (the world-class Metropolitan Museum of Art), easy access to Central Park, plus the brand-new Second Avenue subway make the “Upper East” the choice of discerning New Yorkers.

What's There

Neighbors who appreciate quiet and good manners.

The Vibe

A genteel neighborhood that hasn’t changed very much.


Weekends in Central Park, museum hopping and exploring the tranquil side streets.

What's Not There

Artsy, vibrant street life. OR Anything very extreme.
