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.
