Neighborhood Description

With gorgeous views of the East River, the Manhattan neighborhood Kips Bay is conveniently located just south of Murray Hill and north of Gramercy Park.

The population of Kips Bay primarily consists of young professionals in their early to mid 30s. Located near the heart of Manhattan, there are countless things to do in and around Kips Bay. The Kips Bay Plaza, located between East 30th and East 32nd Streets, offers a movie theater, a large gym, a pet store, a pharmacy, and an office supply store, as well as other shopping establishments. Residents also enjoy viewing the East River at Stuyvesant Cove Park, located just south of the Waterside Plaza apartments. The park features a learning center with a small outdoor stage for events. Several NYU buildings – such as Tisch Hospital and the colleges of dentistry and medicine – are located within Kips Bay as well.

The eclectic food scene of Kips Bay is also attractive to many. From middle-eastern treats (Kalustyan's) to delectable Italian ice (Ralph's Famous) and sandwiches (Lamazou, 2nd Avenue Deli), it’s hard to stay hungry in Kips Bay.

Unlike the food scene, public transit in Kips Bay is not easy to come by, so residents must learn to appreciate walking. Until the 2nd Avenue subway line is finally completed, residents must settle for walking to the 4/5/6 line at Park Avenue. Because transportation is not especially convenient compared to other neighborhoods, Kips Bay apartments are typically less expensive than those in other Manhattan neighborhoods.

Although not considered a bay today, Kips Bay used to be an inlet of the East River. Its name derives from Jacobus Hendrickson Kip, a prominent Dutch settler. In 1776, about a century after Kip lived in Kips Bay, the Landing at Kip's Bay – a historic Revolutionary War episode – took place. The Americans were defeated in that battle, which resulted in the British occupying New York City for a period afterward.

Its boundaries are East 34th Street to the north, the East River to the east, East 23rd Street to the south, and Lexington Avenue to the west.
