Any New Yorker will tell you that no Manhattan neighborhood is quite as synonymous with luxury -- from luxury condominiums to luxury boutiques to the unmistakable elegance of Park Avenue -- as the Upper East Side. The very words "Upper East Side" conjure images of pre-war buildings, tree-lined streets, and understated elegance. There's a reason for that, of course -- it's easy to find all of those on the Upper East Side -- but there's more to life on the Upper East Side than old-school Manhattan luxury. The Upper East Side is alive and in motion, and home to some of the most impressive new construction condo listings in Manhattan.
Park Avenue apartments and Fifth Avenue condominiums are among the most sought-after condominium listings in New York City -- or anywhere else. Those blue-chip addresses are dominated by ultra-high-end pre-war co-ops, although Fifth Avenue condos such as The Stanhope and Park Avenue apartments the modern 949 Park Avenue offer luxurious alternatives to the usual. Picturesque brownstones and apartments can be seen dotted throughout Carnegie Hill. New construction condominiums dominate the quiet, tree-lined streets east of Fifth and Park, with blockbuster new condo listings such as The Brompton, The Lucida, and 300 East 79th offering an elegant modern counterpoint to their pre-war neighbors.
What has always been great about the Upper East Side remains great -- beautiful parks along the East River and apartments with proximity to Central Park; the world-class cultural attractions of Museum Mile; block after block of luxury shopping and some of the finest restaurants in the city. But the Upper East Side of popular imagination is also the Upper East Side you’ll find on, well, the Upper East Side -- a vibrant neighborhood that’s home to a host of great places to live. Residents of Yorkville, on the Upper East Side, are in good company as they are living in the same neighborhood as Gracie Mansion, home to New York's Mayor. It’s more than enough to make any New Yorker want to move to one of New York City's finest residential neighborhoods.
