Upper East Side

Welcome to Upper East Sid

The never-ending Gilded Age of NYC
The Upper East Side is the epitome of luxury with social roots, established traditions, gentry, culture, and old-world sophistication. Uniformed door attendants in stately old buildings, quiet tree-lined streets, and a sense of heritage and belonging are par for the course. Add a healthy dose of a newer and younger vibe, and you have an ideal neighborhood. The beloved Central Park is just icing on the cake. Want more? Have a helping of shopping to die for and delicious restaurants, too. Can restaurants themselves be delicious? They can if they’re on the Upper East Side!
The Upper East Side neighborhood is coveted for its prestigious addresses and classic New York apartments that are refined and upscale. Many of the city’s wealthiest residents live between Park and Fifth Avenue. The Upper East Side has been home to many famous people, including the Rockefellers, Carnegies, and Vanderbilts. Residents are spoiled with The Metropolitan Museum of Art (the MET) in what’s known as Museum Mile — they have over two million pieces of the world’s finest art. The housing options on the Upper East Side include luxury townhouses, opulent condominiums, historic row houses, and posh penthouses.

Local Lifestyle

The Gilded Age of NYC (18701900) appears alive and well on the Upper East Side. This classic period has been portrayed in countless movies and history books. On the Upper East Side, residents still feel as if they are in a part of old-world Europe with the sophisticated vibe of Paris. The streets are quiet and tree-lined with historic architecture and fountains. The locals have everything they could need or want at their fingertips and within walking distance, so daily car use is optional.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Speaking of delicious restaurants, Avra Estiatorio is an unforgettable gastronomic experience. The lush beauty of the dining room and the artistic Greek food presentation is over the top. Add fresh fish flown in daily from Europe, and you might think you’ve gone to heaven. Restaurant Daniel has European cuisine and an impressive wine list served in a Neo-Classic dining room. Rumor has it the Maine halibut is delicious.

Everyone needs a neighborhood hangout, and The Alvin Public House is the perfect place. You’ll find the best American food here with an Irish twist. It’s hard to beat traditional fish and chips with some Guinness on tap.
New York City is a fashionista’s mecca. Hermès is the stuff that legends are made of, with four stories of French luxury clothing, handbags, accessories, fragrance, fine china, and an art gallery. It doesn’t get any better than that. Well, maybe it does. The famouS Bloomingdale’s purveys exclusive designer clothing, handbags, shoes, and jewelry. Then there’s Bergdorf Goodman with its vast selection of the most exclusive designers in the world.

Things to Do

Central Park is 843 acres of green paradise offering various tours and birding basics, weekly walks in different gardens, tennis courts, picnic areas, and chess games.
