Upper East Side apartment rentals appeal to many different types of people. If you have a family, the neighborhood is great because of its strong public schools, proximity to Central Park, and low-key (near Central Park), safe neighborhood. If you are young, recently out of college, and looking to live with your friends, there are some great options in the upper 80s and 90s and east of Park Avenue.
Upper East Side apartments tend to be cheaper relative to living in Union Square, the Lower East Side, the West Village or Soho. Given the higher vacancy rates, there tend to be more no fee apartments available to renters looking to get a deal.Find Upper East Side apartments

Upper East Siders can take advantage of several world class museums, including The Met, The Whitney, and The Frick. They can wander through the greenery of Central Park and its Boat House, the Great Lawn, and the reservoir. To top it off, the neighborhood has great restaurants at a variety of prices.
While not nearly as accessible as other Manhattan neighborhoods, the East Side still has options on the 4,5,6 trains via stops at 86th Street, 77th Street, 68th Street and 59th Street.
Lingo Alert: To be a proper New Yorker, you should always say "I live ON The Upper East Side." Don't say "I live IN the Upper East Side." Don't ask us why, but this lingo really only applies to the Upper East and Upper West sides.
