From East 59th up to 96th Street, the Upper East Side epitomizes elegance and class. Yet it is not only comfort and prestige that attracts both singles and families to this area, it is convenient too. The Upper East Side is not far from New York's best midtown shopping, has excellent private and public schools, and perhaps best of all is a short stroll away from Central Park, the magnificently planned gardens which are the size of Monaco. Shops such as Dylan's Candy Bar, the Windsor Florist, Serendipity and Bloomingdales grace the area, providing a rich retail experience (aside from mention of the famous stretch of shops within easy walking distance).

The Upper East Side's museums - from the grand Metropolitan, through to the spiral Guggenheim, the innovative Whitney, the quietly elegant Neue Gallerie and the vast mansions-turned-museums, such as the Frick and the Cooper-Hewitt, mean this area has the greatest concentration of artistic treasures anywhere on earth. And while the Upper East Side is the number one choice for New York's high society, there are also some more affordable streets close by too. For more temporary stays of residence, the area boasts hotels such as the Carlyle, Hotel Wales, Hotel 57 and Helmsley Carlton House.
