Upper East Side

The Upper East Side is home to many of New York’s best coops and condos and covers the area of the City north of 59th Street and east of Fifth Avenue. The apartment buldings that line Fifth and Park Avenues house some of the most expensive properties in the City. This is a wonderful family area; however, it is still a comfortable place for singles and young professionals. One will find many elegant shops and boutiques, excellent private and public schools, access to Central Park as well as museums such as The Metropolitan, The Guggenheim, The Frick, and The Whitney. Within the boundaries of the Upper East Side are areas such as Carnegie Hill, East End Avenue and Yorkville. As a general rule, prices are more affordable East of Third Avenue.
