Welcome to the Upper East Side

Upper East Side is bounded on the south by 59th Street, north by 96th Street, Central Park to the west, and the East River to the east. Lenox Hill, Carnegie Hill, and Yorkville are located in the neighborhood. 4,5,6, <6>, N, Q, and R trains serve the Upper East Side.

Things to do on the Upper East Side

Leafy home to the City’s elite, the Upper East Side is a place for pastry, pearls and pocket squares. Refined culture and shopping are the name of the game up here. Case in point: Museum Mile, whose institutions include big names like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum alongside gems like Neue Galerie and the Frick Collection. The shopping options offer a chance to get a new wardrobe from luxury boutiques and high-end department stores.
