About NYC: Upper East Side

Upper East Side Apartments NYC - New York, Manhattan And Upper East Side Apartments
Refinement, elegance and world-class culture define this New York City area, long regarded as Manhattan's premier neighborhood. Upper East Side apartments in NYC run from East 60th Street to East 96th Street, from Fifth Avenue to the East River. In the East 60s and 70s, on or near Fifth and Park Avenues, you will find the City's "Gold Coast" - expensive co-op and condominium buildings located in mansions and pre-war era buildings. This section of Manhattan may have the most expensive real estate in the country. In recent years, pre-war, white-glove co-ops have typically seen prices in the $3-30 million dollar range.

Go a little uptown however, in the East 80s and 90s, and you can find many affordable apartments just east of Lexington Avenue. Many entry-level professionals and young families buy or rent their first home between Third and York Avenues; an area loaded with amenities and reasonably priced restaurants.

Besides having Central Park as your backyard, what makes Upper East Side apartments in NYC so popular are their location near New York's greatest museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim and Frick Museum, as well as Manhattan's finest shopping streets - East 57th and Madison Avenue. Families appreciate the close proximity to some of the most coveted private schools and most sought after public schools in the City. Best of all, as other areas of New York such as Soho and the Upper West Side have become trendier, the Upper East Side has become richer in rental opportunities.
