Thinking about living on the Upper East Side of NYC?
Framed by Central Park to the west, the East River to the East, and 59th and 96th streets south and north respectively, the Upper East Side (UES) of NYC provides residents and visitors alike with world-class boutiques such as Barneys New York alongside top restaurants and globally recognized museums. The neighborhood’s “Museum Mile” (5th Avenue between East 82nd and 105th streets) features nine renowned museums with favorites such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum.
Walk a few blocks east and travel up and down the well-manicured Park Avenue. This majestic thoroughfare highlights the finest in NYC living alongside a beautifully gardened median with trees and flowers galore. The area plays a backdrop for countless movies and television shows, with Sex and the City and the Jeffersons being among two of the best known. The neighborhood is self-sustained with countless supermarkets (including a new Fairway Market), home service stores, restaurants of all cuisines, and a host of other services such as gyms and salons suitable for any budget.
The Upper East Side is serviced by the 4,5,6 subway line on Lexington Avenue along with three corridors of local and limited bus service. Additional subway service will arrive in 2016 with the completion of the Second Avenue subway. The neighborhood also provides easy access to other parts of the city and outlying areas via the FDR drive and numerous East River crossings.
