Upper East Side

Upper East Side – Amy Herman, Halstead Property

The Upper East Side is my favorite New York City neighborhood as it’s the neighborhood where I bought my own coop apartment in 2013 in the east 70s. It’s where I live and work and super convenient in terms of access to Central Park and the 6 train. The real estate is breathtaking -prewar and postwar coops and condos and historic townhouses, some built as early as the 19th century. The Carlyle Hotel adds to the beautiful UES skyline and the Museum Mile allows for everyone to enjoy some of the finest art exhibits in the world. There are incredible date-friendly and kid/stroller-friendly restaurants and shops around every corner on Madison Avenue and farther east on Third Avenue-York Avenue too.

Upper East Side – Corinne Pulitzer, Douglas Elliman

As a real estate professional for more than 20 years, I not only sell the Upper East Side, I have called Park Avenue home for 30 years and can’t imagine living elsewhere. With Central Park, Museum Mile, schools, houses of worship, fabulous restaurants, shopping at my doorstep; as well as transportation close by, the Upper East provides a wonderful lifestyle and, at the same time, offers a wide palate of real estate options for buyers and renters. There are coops, condos, new developments, town houses and rentals sharing the same grid…all on tree-lined blocks that are meticulously cared for.

The Upper East Side represents the “best in class” on every level. From the grand avenues to the quiet side streets…there is a suburban thread to the urban landscape.  Both vibrant and subdued, this part of NYC offers some of the finest things in the world in just several zip codes.  Whether your choice is to live in one of the elegant cooperatives or the most cutting edge new development it is assured that you will be located in an incredible community with the best in education, culture, shopping, dining and entertainment and have one of the worlds most beautiful parks as your backyard
