New York Rentals – Upper East Side

View of the Upper East Side from a luxury apartment balcony

No neighborhood is quite as synonymous with luxury living in Manhattan as the Upper East Side. Manhattan's most desirable residential neighborhood for generations, the very words "Upper East Side" conjure an image 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 a sterling reputation.

Apartments on Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue are perhaps the most prestigious pieces of real estate in the nation, but while those blue-chip addresses are dominated by ultra-high-end co-ops, it's still possible to find luxury rentals on Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue, as evidenced by 1085 Park Avenue, an elegant pre-war rental building, and the equally stunning pre-war rental apartments at 1160 Fifth Avenue; the Emery Roth-designed 945 Fifth Avenue is somewhat younger than its pre-war peers (it was built in 1949), but is equally elegant. Solow's One East River Place is a stunningly modern full-service luxury rental tower, and modern rental buildings such as The Lucerne and The Post Toscana meet the neighborhood's high standard for excellence.

And of course what has always been great about the Upper East Side remains great -- beautiful parks along the East River and 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. In this case, the generations of buzz are more than justified, and more than enough to make any New Yorker want to 'move on up' to one of New York City's finest residential neighborhoods.
