One of the absolute most desirable and expensive places to live in the city. The Upper East Side is all about prestige, status, and what you do for a living. It has to be something spectacular if you want to live there. Not only do many wealthy business men, doctors, and celebrities live there but it borders Central Park and Fifth Avenue where a variety of truly high end specialty stores and boutiques are located. Tiffany’s, Bergdorf Goodman, and Gucci are just a few places to drop a pretty penny to outfit yourself in the latest trends of high fashion clothing and accessories.
Some of the areas that the Upper East Side are divided into are Carriage Hill, Lenox Hill, and Yorkville. Spacious apartments, charming brownstones, and luxurious townhouses characterize this district, further highlighted by the neighborhood’s rare selection of top-notch museums, such as the Guggenheim and The Met.
You’ll never be bored here, but hopefully you have plenty of dough to throw around as do most of the 207,000 residents that live there. Fine dining is a must here where many famous chefs have places such as Le Bernardin by Eric Ripert, one of the top seafood restaurants in the city. Maybe even in the whole world.
