Upper East Side
Upper East, from 57th 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 there’s a co-op or condo for everyone. Strict co-ops (some with o’-say-can-you-see 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. Luxury new condo buildings include the Laurel, with a world-class gym that would satisfy any triathlete, the Lucida, and the Brompton.
