The Upper East Side is the part of Manhattan that most strongly represents, even epitomizes the idea of luxury and sophistication that one thinks of when they think of the beautiful, stately townhouses and manors, lush parks, and sparkling, chic streets of Upscale, Uptown Manhattan. Defined by the space between 59th-96th Street and the East River to Central Park, the neighborhood remains true to the old charm of New York City, the neighborhood is packed with iconic landmarks from the world class residential spaces, to the restaurants and shopping destinations and even the parks. Home to one of the oldest residences in Manhattan and the very first home built in the Upper East Side, the neighborhood boasts historic Gracie Mansion overlooking the East River, which today houses the Mayor of New York City during his time in office.
Later in the 19th century, more opulent homes and mansions were built and developed in the area, including the home of United States president Ulysses S. Grant. Other notable and historic landmarks in the area include the Park Avenue Armory, the Carnegie Mansion, and Central Park. The development of wonderful Park Avenue began here, making the neighborhood home to the great Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick, and the Guggenheim designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. With some of the finest dining and shopping in New York, including world famous 4-star restaurants, and top rate shopping at historic stores such as Barney’s and Bloomingdale’s, the experience is unmatched. Add to this the rows of top rate, highly desirable mansion residences along 5th avenue, and the Upper East Side offers and exemplifies the finer side of life in New York.
