  • This area is very good and comfortable to walk on clean, well-kept streets, looking at the old buildings and in numerous museums and shops. Upper East Side differs significantly from the main tourist parts of Manhattan, but nonetheless is required to visit and has a special atmosphere of New York.

  • It is perhaps the quintessential chic district of the city that I invite you to go and find out, even if it is a purely residential area of Manhattan that ends then to Yorkville with 1 ^ and 2 ^ Highway much more popular. To see to get an idea of the typical Manhattan and soul more elegant and discreet.
