Despite the light rain falling today, my wife and I took a walk around the East 50's and 60's mainly to gawk at the fine old homes on virtually every block. The architecture is rather European, to my eyes, and the real estate prices and...More
The Upper East Side of Manhattan has long been known for old money in New York City (Rockefellers, Roosevelts, Kennedys, etc.). The real estate has been some of the priciest in the city. The Upper East Side includes Park Ave., Madison Ave., and Fifth Ave....More
On my most recent trip I stayed on the Upper East Side of Manhattan right off Central Park. I walked everywhere. I enjoyed the fact that the north end of Central Park was right across the street from the Airbnb where I stayed. It was...More
Amazing district in nyc and worth visiting to see how the other half live! Elegant residences, much quieter than other districts in Manhattan and crammed full of art galleries, museums and wonderful restaurants and shops!
If you are visiting NYC but staying in a more affordable neighborhood, it is worth spending one day in The Upper East Side. Beautiful museums, lovely streets to walk and terrific restaurants. Highly recommend!
The Upper East Side is a wonderful upscaled residential area. In addition, it is a great area to explore if you visit the city. There are several avenues to the east of Central Park (Madison, Lexington, Park...). There are many shopping opportunities, department stores (Bloomingdale’s...More

I was reading the reviews that reported how expensive the restaurants are and I thought I as a resident on the edge of the UES might be able to help visitors. The museums are great as are the tony shops on Madison Avenue but if...More
Safe area but socialist Mayor and City Council is taxing us to death. Live in cooperative and properly taxes are laughable on a per square foot basis.

Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
