About Upper East Side
Manhattan's Upper East Side, or UES for short, has long been one of NYC's most desirable neighborhoods for renters. Homes along 5th Ave, Madison Ave, and Park Ave have long been among the priciest and most luxurious in the city, with Central Park views commanding ever-increasing price premiums. Rentals on Fifth Ave can easily go for over five figures a month, but if you're looking to rent a luxury penthouse in a white-glove building, there's no better place than the UES. Some of the most beautiful townhouses in New York City are located in the Upper East Side, particularly in the Lenox Hill area that spans the southwestern corner of this expansive neighborhood. If you're looking to find a more affordable apartment for rent, but still want to be in a luxury building, we'd recommend checking out the area around Park and Lexington Avenues. You'll find an abundance of elevator and doorman rental buildings that offer residences at prices that are much more palatable than those on Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue. A few buildings we'd recommend are 177 East 75th Street and The Marlowe, at 145 East 81st Street. The Marlowe is owned and managed by Glenwood, one of NYC's premier landlords, who also have a number of other luxury buildings in the neighborhood. You'll also be closer to the subway as well as the area's many coffee shops, boutiques, grocery stores, and restaurants. Still, as you move farther east, towards Yorkville, you'll find even more affordable apartment buildings, especially in older walk-ups, and even co-ops. Renting a home in these properties can feel downright cheap. Notably, the area surrounding the newly opened 2nd Avenue subway line has seen a significant development boom and experienced an influx of new residents in recent years, becoming quite popular among the under-30 crowd. Rents vary greatly depending on what part of the UES you live on, but these far-flung corners of the area offer some of the best deals in Manhattan. Due to the incredible development boom in the UES, at times, it feels as though the area is continuously expanding, spreading further north into neighboring Spanish Harlem.
