Upper East Side
Upper East Side Apartment Rentals, Coops and Condos
Ever since Central Park was first opened, the Upper East Side has been one of the most coveted neighborhoods in which to own or rent an apartment. It is notable for its palatial buildings facing the park, its stretch of Museum Mile, and some of the city's better private schools.
For those looking for modern accoutrements, Madison Avenue is highly recommended. Here you'll find all sorts of tiny shops and unique boutiques filled with the latest runway trends. Of particular note is the beautiful Ralph Lauren store on 72nd Street.
Although many families in this area prefer to send their children to private schools, the public schools in this district are also exemplary. P.S. 6, on Madison and 81st Street, is highly regarded for its art and computer curriculum. Despite the fact that their K through 5 students consistently score high on standardized tests, there is still plenty of room for parents looking to enroll their children.
With doorman buildings facing Central Park, exceptional schools, and some of the best high-end shopping in the city, the Upper East Side is great for families looking for an apartment in New York.
