The Upper East Side historically exemplifies serious landmark-type apartments but remains a neighborhood where there’s a co-op or condo for everyone. Strict co-ops (some with o’-say-can-you-see Central Park views) continue to prevail in the Upper East Side from Park to Fifth Avenues, but there are plenty of studios, one- and two-bedroom condos, and rentals on the Upper East Side as well. If you're looking for luxury new condo buildings check out Arloparc, renown for it's tastefully European yet modern limestone facade. Additionally The Bellemont, completed in 2022, is known for its classic floorplans while offering luxuriously modern ameneties such as an enchanting rooftop terrace with spectacular views of Central Park, a state-of-the-art screening room, a regulation squash court,inspired children’s play room and a holistic fitness space. Lastly a bit further east, 200 E 83rd street is an absolute gem designed by Robert A.M. Stern the building's elegant silhouette has become an integral part of the New York City skyline.
The Upper East Side contains a plethora of recreational offerings including Carl Schurz Park, convenient to the Upper East Side sub-neighborhood known as Yorkville, and Asphalt Green, an athletic center with an olympic-sized pool, which offers everything from swimming lessons to soccer matches. The shopping opportunities are as endless as the stock of apartments, from wonderful Upper East Side department stores (Bloomingdale’s and Bergdorf Goodman) to big marts with all kind of housewares for sale (Bed, Bath and Beyond and Gracious Home) to the perfect place to satisfy a sweet tooth (Laduree). On the Upper East Side, you can also make a day out of grocery shopping alone; be sure to stop by Grace’s, Eli’s, Schaller and Weber and Lobel’s. Dining options for both nourishment and social assemblages on the Upper East Side still include the high-profile Sistina and special occasion destinations like Daniel. If you're looking for the perfect brunch spot, try JoJo, created by the one and only Jean-Georges, the beloved spot (located in a renovated townhouse) features farm-to-table favorites. If you want to keep it more lowkey, look no further than E.A.T. for a delicious breakfast, among many others. Finally for a social evening, hot spots include the bars at the many high-end hotels in the area, such as The Carlyle, The Mark and The Surray; for a more relaxed yet sophisticated retreat try Melody's piano bar.
