Guide to the fancy Upper East Side

New York, USA

District Guide

This famous neighborhood owes its popularity to the typical brownstone buildings, its avenues, world-class museums, luxury restaurants, and, of course thanks to the great New York Central park.

In this very beautiful neighborhood you can take a nice walk, eating in one of its pretty restaurants, admire its luxurious buildings. The Upper East Side is a very popular neighborhood because of its ideal location close to a large number of museums located here...no wonder why this district is called "Museum Mile". Among the many available museums you can visit the Guggenheim Museum (in case you're a modern art lover) or the Metropolitan Museum of Art where you can admire artifats from all over the world. The upper East Side can be a paradise for shopping lovers; there are lots of elegant boutiques, jewelry stores, famous brands and expensive trendy shops. You can find these shops almost everywhere but Madison Avenue and the 5th Avenue have the best ones.
