Upper East Side


Upper East, from 59th Street to 110th Street, from the East River to Fifth Avenue, with Sutton Place and Carnegie Hill as separate enclaves.

The Upper East Side historically exemplifies serious landmark-type apartments but remains a neighborhood where a co-op or condo can be found for everyone. Strict co-ops (some with incredible Central Park views) continue to prevail in the Upper East Side from Park to Fifth Avenues, but there are plenty of studios, one- and two-bedroom condos, and rentals on the Upper East Side as well. New luxury condo buildings include 20 East End Avenue, inspired by the pre-war architecture of the Upper East Side, and Citizen360 which is committed to sustainable building practices.

Upper East Side living means having it all in your own backyard. Enjoy afternoons at the Central Park Zoo, linger over collections and exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, indulge luxury shopping fantasies at Barneys, and sip cocktails at the Penrose.
Families with names like Rockefeller and Kennedy aren’t the only ones who can partake of its charms. June’s Museum Mile Festival is New York’s biggest block party, when Fifth Avenue shuts down and the museums open to all.

This area’s architectural gems serve as signposts for the area’s narrative. In 1799, wealthy merchant Archibald Grace began construction on the landmark Gracie Mansion. This Federal-style dwelling served as Gracie’s private residence until the aftermath of the War of 1812 bankrupted him. For decades it housed a succession of museums until 1942, when it became the ‘Little White House’ designated for New York City mayors.

Through the early 1900s, gilded age mansions sat comfortably near the Queen Anne style row houses constructed for the middle class. Then they were torn down, replaced by townhomes and apartments row houses crafted with great attention to detail. Iron and glass entrance hoods and Renaissance-inspired carvings on façades still stand sentry. Architectural history flourishes, thanks in part to conservation efforts.
