Welcome to Upper East Side
With a quieter but still lively uptown feel, the Upper East Side is known for its upscale apartments and brownstones, great schools and designer stores. However, more and more you can find affordable apartments – especially the most East you are willing to go. With the recent opening of the 2nd Avenue Subway (Q) train, the East part of the neighborhood has become increasingly accessible. The neighborhood extends from the East River to Central Park and from 59th Street to 96th Street. Museum Mile, located along Fifth Avenue, is home to some of the best museums in the country.
