The elegant, chic and sophisticated Upper East Side is one of Manhattan’s most coveted neighborhoods. Home to nine of New York City’s finest museums, including the Met and the Guggenheim, it’s widely considered the cultural capital of Manhattan. Known for its tranquil atmosphere, the UES also provides some much-needed peace and quiet in the city that never sleeps. Stroll down the famed Park Avenue, Madison Avenue or Lexington Avenue and ogle at the world-class shopping, extravagant real estate and fine dining restaurants. With Central Park bordering the neighborhood to the west, there’s always somewhere to recharge and get some fresh air.
Fifth Avenue from 82nd to 105th Street is known as Museum Mile, containing the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Jewish Museum, the Museum of the City of New York, El Museo del Barrio and more.
The Upper East Side’s restaurant scene is incredibly diverse. Whatever you’re craving after a day of museum-hopping or exploring Central Park, you’ll find it here. Try the iconic burger at JG Melon, get dressed up for a fancy French meal at Daniel or slurp noodles at Xi'an Famous Foods.
Residents enjoy prime access to Central Park, including popular destinations within the park like the Central Park Zoo, The Mall and Literary Walk, the Loeb Boathouse and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. Several small parks also permeate the neighborhood.
