Upper Eastside (Manhattan)
New York’s affluent Upper Eastside is an enclave of elegant grandeur with a history dating back to the industrialists and extravagant elite of the Gilded Age where grand mansions and sprawling apartments look out over Central Park and limousines and Ferraris mingle with the ubiquitous yellow cabs. Streets bustle with city workers, shoppers and tourists, all taking a bite from the Big Apple.
Along ‘Museum Mile’ lie institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim, while designer boutiques, world-class dining and iconic photo-worthy sites abound. From the Rockefeller Center to the Empire State, Central Park’s leafy lanes to bustling diners and well-heeled restaurants, Upper Eastside Manhattan is the New York immortalised on screen, page and postcard.
