Upper East Side Neighborhood

Encompassing Lenox Hill, Carnegie Hill, and Yorkville, the Upper East Side is one of Manhattan’s most well-established neighborhoods. Known for its understated elegance and old-money bona fides—Rockefellers, Roosevelts, and Carnegies have all lived here, as did Sex in the City’s Carrie Bradshaw—there are nevertheless many surprisingly affordable housing options, especially as you head east.

Avenues (especially Madison) are lined with posh boutiques and hushed restaurants catering to people who use “lunch” as a verb; while leafy cross streets contain a mix of stately (and expensive) townhomes, doorman high-rises, and more budget-friendly walk-ups. The Upper East Side is also home to famed Museum Mile where visitors and residents alike can enjoy a quiet retreat at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Guggenheim. And with the entire expanse of Central Park as your back yard, outdoor recreation is equally accessible.
