Upper East Side

In the national imagination, the Upper East Side is the neighborhood most depicted in television, films, and literature. Home to ladies who lunch and nanny diarists, Madison Avenue boutiques, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and adjacent to the lush beauty of Central Park, the Upper East Side tends to be defined by traditional affluence and modern day apartment towers. In this area, ambition seems as common as oxygen with many of the townhouse-lined streets serving as home to leading names in finance, media, and medicine.
