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.
More The Upper East Side contains a plethora of recreational offerings including Carl Schurz Park, convenient to the Upper East Side sub-neighborhood known as Yorkville, and Asphalt Green, an athletic center with an olympic-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 (Bloomingdale’s and Barneys) to big marts with all kind of housewares for sale (Bed, Bath and Beyond and Gracious Home) to the perfect place to satisfy a sweet tooth (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’s, Schaller and Weber and Lobel’s. Dining options for both nourishment and social assemblages on the Upper East Side still include the high-profile Elaine’s, special occasion destinations like Daniel, Park Avenue Café, and Sarabeth’s and E.A.T. for a delicious breakfast, among many others.

The Upper East Side, particularly The East End Avenue Area is one of my favorite neighborhoods. Here you can enjoy spectacular river views and a peaceful stroll through Carl Schurz Park while still living in the heart of it all in Manhattan.
