UPPER EAST SIDE

An upscale and sophisticated neighborhood, with a more affordable and younger enclave East of Lexington Avenue.

Welcome to The Upper East Side

 
The Upper East Side is often associated with posh residents living in luxury pre-war buildings and townhomes, but as one of the largest neighborhoods in the city, it encompasses many different lifestyles. While it's true that some of the city's wealthiest residents live between Park and Fifth Avenues, if you head east towards Yorkville, you'll find many young professionals and families seeking more affordable homes in Manhattan. Both budget-friendly and luxurious, the Upper East Side has an air of traditionalism that appeals to many longtime residents, while newcomers and tourists will appreciate the chic buildings, shops, and restaurants that line every street.

LOCAL LIFESTYLE

 
The Upper East Side is home to some of New York City's most historic and treasured buildings and attractions. It's easy to spend hours exploring the area, whether you enjoy exploring Central Park, diving into museums, or shopping on Madison Avenue. In the evening, head over to Second Avenue and enjoy a vibrant nightlife and restaurant scene.
 

DINING, ENTERTAINMENT, & SHOPPING

 
While nearly every neighborhood can lay claim to being the city’s peak of dining, the Upper East Side certainly set the standard for what it takes to reach the summit. Top chefs from all over the cuisine map put a pin down in the area, with eateries ranking among the world’s best. Just don’t think the UES is too stuffy for the simpler things; you can always head around the corner to grab a slice in this town.
 
For a delicious meal in a modern setting, head to Daniel, a French-inspired restaurant with decadent menu items. After enjoying dinner there, grab a handcrafted cocktail at Bemelmans Bar. This classy bar inside the Carlyle Hotel is decorated with artwork from famed author/illustrator Ludwig Bemelmans. If you want to indulge in some retail therapy, just walk along Madison Avenue for all of your luxury brand name designers, but don't forget to stop by The RealReal, a high-end consignment shop with a wealth of vintage treasures.
 
Home to Museum Mile, an almost 30 block section of Fifth Avenue, you'll never get bored on the Upper East Side. From 82nd to 110th Street, you'll pass by some of the world's foremost cultural institutions including The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
