Upper East Side
The Upper East Side, bordered by Central Park and the East River from approximately 57th Street to 110th Street, is traditionally a very high-end and conservative area of Manhattan. It fact, it is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the United States. In its early days, the Upper East Side was home to such prominent American families as the Carnegies, Vanderbilts and Astors, just to name a few. From the pristine, landmark apartment buildings on Park Avenue to the chic boutiques on Madison Avenue to Fifth Avenue’s world famous “Museum Mile,” the Upper East Side is just as appealing as ever. This peaceful neighborhood offers plenty of co-ops and luxury doorman buildings, as well as brownstones and townhouses on its quiet streets.
