Why Live on the Upper East Side?

Manhattan Upper East Side

The Upper East Side is known for its neighborhood feel and expensive Park Avenue apartments, steeped in rich history dating back to America’s most prominent families. The Carnegies, 

Rockefellers, and Kennedys have all called the Upper East Side Home. Today, the neighborhood attracts a variety of different demographics and has housing options that span many price ranges.

People are attracted to the Upper East Side and call it home for a myriad of reasons ranging from selection of schools to restaurants, shopping, and culture. It is a great neighborhood for first-time city dwellers as well as established families because of the diversity of properties available in the area. The neighborhood feel of the Upper East Side extends a welcoming hand to all.

Oscar De la Renta Madison Avenue

Some felt that the Upper East Side was somewhat out of reach because the 4/5/6 was the main artery in and out of the neighborhood, leaving people on the east side of the area having to walk to Lexington Avenue to get downtown. With the opening of the Second Avenue Subway, the neighborhood and all of its perks have become even more accessible, and properties on the far east side of felt a positive impact.

Whether you are looking for home close to great close, coffee shops, museums, or shopping, the Upper East Side offers it all! Download our Upper East Side neighborhood guide to learn more about the neighborhood and why we love it.
