“Perfect place for home.”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Lots of stores, including famous Bloomingdale's. Tons of great restaurants, some with music and dancing. Movie theaters, cafes.
You come home, relax and out again for a walk in the neighborhood.

“I love the UES”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I actually love the old buildings, la-di-da neighbourhood changing to normality as you head east. Its very peaceful, unique and a great alternate loop for sightseeing if you've run the park way too many times each weekend for years. The shops and people are normal...so people watching here isn't what it is in the villages, but that means you can relax too.

“My Neighborhood”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

I lived on East 72nd Street for close to 10 years and I will always love the Upper East Side. It has the best of everything the city has to offer. Some of the very best restaurants are located here. You can just stroll around and never be bored... walk through Central Park, go to the Metropolitan Museum or the Frick. Check out the stores on Madison Avenue. You will never run out of things to do.

“Deceiving.”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

It seems very plain. Not what I expected. While in New York, i was looking for style and high fashion and thought this area would provide a glimps into high fashion and high-end cars but did not see them. Perhaps, I was there on the wrong day. However, New York will never dissapoint any sight-seer.
