When people think of the ultimate in NYC sophistication, the first neighborhood that comes to mind is usually the Upper East Side. This iconic New York area is home to the cultural center of the city, Lincoln Square, where you can find the Lincoln Center for The Performing Arts and some of the best opera and ballet in the entire world. It is also where you can find up-and-coming neighborhoods like Yorkville. While Yorkville was once a popular spot due to its affordable cost of living, now, new luxury buildings are popping up in this area regularly and the homes inside them are selling fast.
Another excellent example of Upper East Side luxury is Carnegie Hill, where you can still find Andrew Carnegie’s Fifth Avenue mansion, built in 1901. This quiet, tree-lined neighborhood is home to more than just stunning townhouses, it’s also where you can find the greatest museums in the city and beautifully preserved buildings thanks to the efforts of the local community to maintain the area’s classic charm.
