The Charm of the Upper East Side
The Upper East Side is a gradient of socio-economic prosperity. To the west, the Upper East Side is characterized by luxurious homes and a high standard of living. This article from Street Easy shows how prices tend to be lower when going from the park towards the water (although this trend might change when the new MTA stations for the Q line will open on 2nd Avenue). Although the average price for the whole UES per ft² is $2,499.00, prices tend to vary greatly with the different areas. For example while the average price in per ft² Yorkville is “only” $1,809, the average price in Carnegie Hill is as high as $2,322 per ft². Of all the UES neighborhoods, Carnegie Hill is the most expensive one.
