Welcome to the 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. Newer luxury condo buildings include the Laurel, with a world-class gym that would satisfy any athlete, the Lucida, and the Brompton.
East to West Boundaries: The East River to Fifth Avenue

The Upper East Side contains a plethora of recreational offerings including Carl Schurz Park, convenient to the sub-neighborhood, Yorkville, and Asphalt Green, an athletic center with an lympic-sized pool, which offers everything from swimming lessons to soccer matches. The shopping opportunities are as endless as the stock of apartments, from wonderful Upper East Side department stores including Bloomingdale’s and Barney’s, to the perfect place to satisfy a sweet tooth like Dylan’s Candy Bar. On the Upper East Side, you can also make a day out of grocery shopping alone; be sure to stop by Grace’s, Eli Zabar’s, Schaller and Weber and of course, the new Whole Foods on East 57th nearby. Dining options for both nourishment and social assemblages on the Upper East Side include special occasion destinations like Daniel, and Sarabeth’s and E.A.T. for a delicious breakfast, among many others.
