I stayed at the 1871 House with my husband and 13 year old daughter for 10 nights in July. We stayed in the Rear Library Bedroom which was ideal for the 3 of us.

My husband and I stayed in the Mission Studio of this wonderful B&B in December of last year. Although below street level, the Mission Studio was spacious, quiet and very tastefully decorated. I cannot say enough about the location of the 1871 House. Being within walking distance of Central Park, Madison Avenue, 5th Avenue and numerous restaurants made our trip... More

My husband, teenage sons and I have stayed at 1871 House four times in the past three years. We've stayed in The Great Room and the Madison Suite. We are delighted with the rooms and find the hosts and their staff to be kind and flexible. We also find it excellent value. The Great Room is perfect for a romantic... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
