Upper East Side
Rub shoulders with New York’s elite, window shop along Fifth Avenue en route to class and see a Picasso on your way home
Live in one of the most covetable parts of New York City, where you’ll pass socialites on your daily coffee run, browse designer stores and eat out at top-notch restaurants. Pop into The Guggenheim after class and see a Cézanne masterpiece one day and a Monet the next. Live within walking distance of the famous Museum Mile and visits to the world-renowned exhibitions at The Met will soon become standard. Spend time getting to know your neighbourhood and you’ll discover the iconic museums and prestigious mansions that line leafy avenues.
You won't go hungry in Upper East Side, as gourmet grocery stores and cafés are dotted about the streets. Make daily trips to delicatessens like E.A.T on Madison Avenue - a local institution that’s been serving up delicious bites for decades. Explore Lenox Hill where you’ll find consignment stores bursting with designer bargains. Discover little pockets of green along the East River in Yorkville when you want somewhere peaceful to sit and study in the sunshine.
Living on the Upper East Side means you’re never far from Central Park. Aside from space to cycle, jog or ice skate in the winter, there’s always something going on in this vast urban retreat. Get tickets for outdoor theatre and music concerts, take in landscaped lawns in the Conservatory Garden or bring a picnic to sit on Sheep Meadow. All of this in the heart of one of the busiest cities in the world.
