Upper East Side
One of the most prestigious addresses in New York City, the Upper East Side combines refined culture with rich history, luxury shopping, and lush, green spaces -offering an elegant space away from downtown’s hustle and bustle.
About the Upper East Side
Before becoming the upscale metropolitan neighborhood it is today, the Upper East Side was once the center for rural farmlands and market gardens. It wasn’t until 1837 when the New York and Harlem Railroad allowed commercial development to begin. And when the El trains helped link the Upper East Side to other parts of the city, the local population grew rapidly, and the neighborhood eventually earned the reputation as a premier elite residential destination.
Today, the Upper East Side continues to embody classic New York sophistication with its attractive blend of boutiques, museums, restaurants, schools, churches, and top-rated nightlife.
Where to Eat on the Upper East Side
New York City is one big melting pot of world cuisines, so dining on spectacular dishes won’t be a problem on the Upper East Side.
Sfogila is a rustic trattoria offering diners authentic country Italian fare in a charming setting. Farmhouse furniture adorned with fresh flowers provide the perfect tablescape for a creative seasonal menu inspired by local produce. Sumptuous dishes include pappardelle ala bolognese and goat cheese agnolotti made with handmade pasta.
Little Frog is a Parisian-style bistro –complete with a bar, a terrasse, and a secret back patio. Their well-rounded menu paired with an extensive wine list and seasonal cocktails will surely satisfy any discerning palate. Diners can enjoy straightforward French fare such as steak tartare, moules frites, roasted duck in peppercorn sauce, and crème brûlée.
What to Do on the Upper East Side
A historic, beautiful, and highly cosmopolitan part of New York City, the Upper East Side won’t disappoint when it comes to its offerings of world-famous museums and retail therapy options.
Museum Mile is a near-30 block section of Fifth Avenue that is home to some of the world’s most renowned cultural institutions. Art enthusiasts can tour The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, the Africa Center, and other noteworthy museums in between.
For an urban escape, there is always Central Park. Meadows, woodlands, and lakes offer the perfect backdrop for strolls, picnics, concerts, outdoor exercise, boating, or sightseeing.
Madison Avenue is a shopping mecca for luxury shoppers. Tory Burch, Fendi, Ralph Lauren, and Lily Pulitzer are just some of the 150 designer boutiques that can be found at this mile-and-a-half shopping destination. It’s the best place for anyone who desires to wear off-the-runway looks.
