Neighborhood Description

The Upper East Side continues to increase in prestige.

Yet, even with its affluent and dignified aesthetic, The Upper East Side maintains an outstanding sense of community and warmth. Families choose this neighborhood for its five-star schools, quiet atmosphere, and marvelously close proximity to Central Park.

Spacious apartments, charming brownstones, and luxurious townhouses characterize this district, further highlighted by the neighborhood’s rare selection of top-notch museums, such as the Guggenheim and The Met.

The Upper East Side’s shopping scene is brimming with elegant boutiques, and the neighborhood is home to countless exceptional restaurants. While the restaurant scene involves a multitude of fine-dining establishments, it is also valued for its more laid-back restaurants and ever-growing bar scene. Trendy wine and craft beer bars with unique ambiances, as well as easygoing lounges and pubs, make for a social scene that is both fun and classy.

The Upper East Side has become pervasive in Popular Culture. From Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) to Arbitrage (2012) to The Jeffersons (1975) to Gossip Girl (2007), the neighborhood has functioned as a central location in countless films and television series. It is also featured in many famous literary works including Catcher in the Rye and The Great Gatsby.

The area existed as farmland and gardens until 1837 and the increased commercial development of Harlem Railroad’s Eighty-Sixth street train station. Subsequently, commercialization continued to increase, causing a subdivision of farmland in the nineteenth century and a population influx in the area. Though the population rise was temporarily thwarted by a six-year economic depression (marked by the “Panic of 1873”), the Upper East Side regained its status as a prime location for real estate in the proceeding years.

The Upper East Side is located between Central Park and the East River, north of Midtown, and south of East Harlem.

Transportation options include the 6 train to Sixty-Eighth Street station—Hunter College, or to the Seventy-Seventh Street station, or the 4/5/6 to the Eighty-Sixth Street station. Buses run crosstown at major intersections, up First and Third Avenue, and down Second, Lexington, and Fifth Avenues. The FDR also runs along the Upper East Side.
