Halstead Director of Sales Eastside, John Wollberg, and a group of his talented agents take us through one of Manhattan's most prestigious and culturally diverse neighborhoods located on the luxurious Upper East Side..
Known to many as the most affluent and prestigious milieu in Manhattan, the Upper East Side is awash in elegance and culture. Extending from 59th to 96th Street and bordered by Fifth Avenue and the East River, the Upper East Side is home to such charming neighborhoods as Carnegie Hill, Lennox Hill, East End Avenue and Yorkville. With many verdant, tree-lined streets and avenues, the neighborhood is a delightful place to live. Cultural attractions here are multitudinous. Famous Museum Mile along Fifth Avenue is lined with some of the world's most prominent art institutions: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Frick Art Collection located in the Frick Mansion, among others. Given its many famous museums and art, the Upper East Side of Manhattan is one of the most celebrated areas in the country.
With many exclusive luxury apartments in co-ops and condos along Fifth Avenue and Park Avenue, there are also many beautiful townhouses that line the narrower streets. More reasonably priced apartments and homes can be found closer to the river. Madison Avenue is host to some of the city's toniest shopping including glamorous designer clothing stores such as Armani, Ralph Lauren and Gianni Versace. And throughout the area, there is no shortage of places to eat. Chic, sleek trendsetting restaurants alternate with warm ethnic nooks. Before or after an expedition along Madison Avenue or Museum Mile, you can easily satisfy any craving from among the myriad cuisines, yummy delights and noshing possibilities throughout the Upper East Side.
Other attributes of this locale include its proximity to Central Park and its numerous elite schools, of prime importance to families. The Dalton School, Chapin, and some of the best public schools in the city, such as P.S. 6, are all located here. While many families have understandably flocked here, more and more young professionals and singles are moving to the Upper East Side as well.
