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 locals skip between gourmet dinners and designer boutiques, carrying their perfectly-pampered pups. Recent years have seen an increase in young professionals, while art enthusiasts will love the private galleries dotted around the area, as well as easy access to a number of world-class museums, including the iconic Guggenheim and the 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 if and when you get hungry for a hipper, more vibrant scene. One thing to know – New York is a very busy city (it’s not called “the city that never sleeps” for nothing). As part of an authentic New York experience, you can expect a fair amount of noise and construction coming from the streets, whether it be roadwork, scaffolding, or honking yellow taxis.
