The luxury homes and high end shopping of Manhattan’s Upper East Side make it the preferred choice for many of New York’s wealthiest and most influential citizens. The meticulously landscaped avenues and gorgeous town-houses, plus the bordering Central Park, make the Upper East Side a great place for walks and sight seeing while local attractions, such as the Whitney Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Guggenheim, provide a rich culture that attracts interest from across the globe. While Park Ave and “millionaire’s row” price beyond the range of most renters, the area east of Lexington Ave boasts a growing community of young professionals and new families taking advantage of the neighborhood’s attractions while finding more affordable prices. The area is served by the Lexington Ave Subway line, (4,5,6), and between the train and buses the rest of NYC is readily accessible.
