While it’s still in the process of shaping its own identity amidst the more distinguished surrounding neighborhoods, Yorkville has its own brand of charm that continues to grow in appeal.

About Yorkville

Yorkville is a neighborhood in the Upper East Side, between East Harlem to the north and East 79th Street to the south. For much of the 19th and into the 20th centuries, Yorkville was a melting pot of populations arriving from various regions of Germany, as well as colonies of the Prussian-dominated German Empire. Over time, many people of Polish, Hungarian, Slovak, and Irish descent immigrated to Yorkville, which eventually became more affluent.

Yorkville is a hidden gem in the Upper East Side that slowly revealed its unique character when the Second Avenue subway opened. It is considered a quiet enclave offering lots of spaces for recreation –the perfect escape from busier and more frenzied neighborhoods.

Where to Eat in Yorkville

Upper East Side’s dining scene offers options that are diverse, creative, and ambitious, making every trip to a restaurant an adventure for the senses.  

Kaia is a South African wine bar that combines the worldly appeal of traveling with the charm of visiting an aunt’s home for a warm and sumptuous meal. They serve over 50 wines from South Africa –diners are encouraged to try as much wine as they want until they find the exact variety they like. Signature dishes include elk carpaccio and lamb burger.

Naruto’s ramen-focused menu is perfect for cold, wintry days or anytime the mood for soothing broth with noodles hits. Naruto uses handmade noodles in all of its dishes, and diners can choose from miso ramen, tan tan ramen, curry ramen, or Naruto (soy-based broth). Appetizers include gyoza, steamed buns, and Takoyaki.  

What to Do in Yorkville

At the heart of Yorkville is the Carl Schurz Park –a 14-9-acre oasis away from the city’s hustle and bustle. It is a lovely place for taking strolls along the promenade, enjoying views of the river, picnicking, or people-watching. It’s also a dog-friendly park offering two spacious dog runs for pups to mingle and play.

Carl Schurz Park is also home to the 18th-century mansion, Gracie Mansion, that serves as the Mayor’s official residence. It was designated a New York City Landmark in 1966 and offers tours, exhibits, and programs such as the Gracie Book Club.

Providing another beautiful escape from the city, the East River Esplanade is a two-mile-long public open space for recreation with stunning views of Manhattan’s eastern shore. It has two half basketball courts, a dog run, an elevated fitness area with equipment, and a two-way bike lane with 24-hour lighting.
