Get to know the Upper East Side

An address on the Upper East Side has been a desirable asset for centuries. Names like Vanderbilt, Carnegie, Schermerhorn, and Lenox—ones familiar to anyone traveling around the city today—all secured their spot at one time or another. What was once vast farmland became subdivided by NYC’s street grid in the 19th century. Subsequently, construction began on the first wave of iconic apartments and townhouses, many of which continue to captivate us today. Removal of elevated train lines in the 1950s opened up even more rarefied air for New Yorkers to occupy, but worry not: extensive subway service continues to run beneath these glorious streets. Elegant pre-war buildings. Stunning Central Park vistas. Iconic cultural institutions. Endless shopping options. The setting of countless books, films, and television shows. For those living there, however, it’s all those things and more: it’s home.
