Upper East Side

When many people think of the Upper East Side, they think of a quiet, tree-lined urban expanse filled with posh residents and purebred dogs. There’s some reality behind the neighborhood’s old-money image: The blocks between Park and Fifth avenues are home to some of Manhattan’s wealthiest residents, many of whom dwell in stately co-ops or sleek new condos overseen by stiffly collared doormen. But there’s a lot more than old money on the Upper East Side. The Museum Mile throngs with tourists, street artists, and lovers of the arts, drawn to its abundance of high culture. And the eastern side of the neighborhood, toward Yorkville, exhibits a less rarefied character. Second Avenue is home to sports bars, Irish pubs, and some excellent restaurants. A trendy renaissance is in the offing here, sparked by young professionals drawn by some surprisingly good housing prices (for Manhattan). The avenues and commerce-lined thoroughfares can be hectic, but many streets on the Upper East Side are blessedly quiet — just one more way in which this oft-stereotyped neighborhood can be a surprise.

The real estate along 5th Avenue and Park Avenue is some of the most expensive in the city, but as you move farther from the park, prices become much more moderate — especially for co-ops and rentals. Central Park’s reservoir, boathouse and the Great Lawn are all easily accessible from the Upper East Side.

Museum Mile is a major tourist destination: The Frick Collection, the Met, the Neue Galerie and the Guggenheim are all within 10 blocks of each other. Families love the Upper East Side for its prestigious private schools, safe streets and countless playgrounds. (Credit to StreetEasy for above writing)

Carnegie Hill is a neighborhood within the Upper East Side, in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. Its boundaries are 86th Street on the south, Fifth Avenue (Central Park) on the west, with a northern boundary at 98th Street that continues just past Park Avenue and turns south to 96th Street and proceeds east up to, but not including, Third Avenue.  In the 2000s, the perceived northern boundary on Park Avenue has edged over 96th Street into what was traditionally Spanish Harlem, leading to that area sometimes being called Upper Carnegie Hill, especially by real-estate brokers. According to the official Carnegie Hill Neighbors website, the Carnegie Hill neighborhood extends from 86th to 98th Streets, from Fifth Avenue up to, but not including, Third Avenue.
