Top 20 Upper East Side, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
This is old school New York at its most elegant and sophisticated, where the affluent, mostly old-money locals skip between gourmet delicatessens and designer boutiques, carrying their perfectly-pampered pups. It’s also an art enthusiast’s paradise, with private galleries dotted along Madison and Park Avenues, and easy access to a number of world-class museums, which include the iconic spiral-shaped Guggenheim, The Frick and the extraordinary Metropolitan Museum of Art. A typical exclusive apartment building here has a dedicated doorman to welcome residents into a grand marble foyer, and a neat over-pavement awning atop polished brass poles. The local green space – Central Park – is perhaps the greatest draw of all, and there’s quick and easy access to Downtown Manhattan on the 4,5 and 6 Subway lines, if and when you get hungry for a hipper, more vibrant scene.
