Yorkville is a neighborhood within the Upper East Side with a relaxing, calm atmosphere. The area is ethnically rich and diverse, a nod to its history as a hub for Eastern European immigrants, as well as Irish and German. People from all walks of life, from the working, to middle and upper classes, call Yorkville home. It is a popular neighborhood for college students because of its more affordable living costs.
The neighborhood has a very homey atmosphere thanks to its calmness, green spaces, and architecture. There are a number of eateries and Eastern European-themed commerce in the area. Yorkville is accessible by multiple subway lines, but with the addition of the new Second Avenue Subway, residents can expect to have even easier access to the rest of the city.
